    First Baby Food Recipes

    Here are some of the recipes for what I have fed Eliana so far. Here are a few notes about my recipes and cooking: -I give Eliana as much seasonal, organic produce as possible. My friend Dawn brings up a good point about buying local, in season produce because other countries might not necessarily have the same rules about pesticides as we do.  If I were super clever, I would have thought to freeze the yummy organic fruit that was available in the summer. But, over the summer I had a newborn, so cleverness was not my strong point!

    This is about as messy as I can handle.  I’m waaaay too crazy for this mess.  In theory, I want Eliana to experience food inside and out, to get to know the smell, feel and, duh, taste of her food and to become a “good eater.” I say, and do actually believe, all of that. Until she tries to grab the food off the spoon, smear it all over her face, her hair, the bib, her clothes, me, her Bumbo seat and the counter.    Oh dear.   Oh no!    I swear that if it were not winter, I’d strip her

Each day I *attempt* to feed her two different “solids” twice a day. Attempt because there are days it happens and days it doesn’t. We all have goals, right?   I took the year off from work to stay home with the little lady and since I like to cook,  I’m a bit of a food snob, and (I’ll confess) a control freak, I’m making all her food.
