Do you know what a "raspberry" is? Not the little red fruit! I'm talking about a tongue out, spit spray in a fine mist. Especially charming when the perpetrator has a mouth full of food.
After a week or so of being on the receiving end of Gerber Organic and Earth's Best airbrushing, I decided No More jar food and began making all meals for my infant son. Armed with this book, I discovered that making baby food is EASY, and darned if it isn't DELICIOUS! So much better than jarred, and God's honest: My son stopped spitting immediately.
After making the applesauce purees blended with blueberries, or mango, or dried apricot, even dried prunes - now when I see applesauce recipes that call for sugar, I can't understand why. The chicken-sweetpotato-apple blend is one of my son's favorites, and the halibut in cheese sauce is fantastic!
This is a terrific book, and I've made almost every recipe. If you see it, pounce!
Most pediatricians would probably not agree with her about introducing a child to strawberries and corn in their first year, but this book has quite a few good, basic recipes for any mother or father who wants to give their child something better than that funny looking goo on the store shelves.
A great little recipe book for baby food. The recipes are very versitile. I like that one recipe can feed the whole family. For example, mini-minestrone can be pureed for a baby, chopped for older babies and toddlers, or put in veggie broth to make a soup for adults. Most recipes can be frozen. Some recipes use seasonsings like leeks or cinnamon, making it easier to transition from baby purees to adult food. I use this books a lot. Homemade baby food tastes MUCH better than store-bought. Use this book for simple, one ingredient purees as well as baby versions of adult food. Highly recommended!
