  1. Barley and Sweet Potato Balls

    1 cup soft cooked pearled barley (not pureed.)
    1 cup cooked sweet potatoes
    1/2 cup applesauce or peach puree
    pinch of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg as desired (8 months +)

    1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl
    2. Shape into small bite sized “balls” or plops for a nice baby finger food.

    My daughter LOVES this recipe and it’s super easy & healthy!!!

  2. Purple Chicken: Great for Mom & Dad
    The port is cooked off so it is safe for your little ones too!

    4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
    1 shallot, finely cut
    1-1/2 cups Port wine
    Salt & Pepper
    Olive Oil

    1. Season the chicken breasts and brown in a skillet.
    Remove from heat and keep warm.

    2. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and then add shallots.
    Cook until softened.

    3. Return the chicken breasts to the skillet.

    4. Remove the skillet from heat and pour in the Port wine. (Make sure you remove the skillet from the stove, you don’t want the fumes from the wine to catch the flame). The Port wine should be enough to just cover the chicken breasts.

    5. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or so depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts.

    6. Remove the chicken breasts, keep warm and covered on a plate.

    7. Turn up the heat on the remaining Port wine and cook until it is reduced some & slightly thickened, about 5 – 8 minutes.

    8. Pour on top of the chicken breasts and serve.

    I usually serve it with wild rice and veggies.

    My husband use to make this meal during his bachelor days. It’s really easy & fast. It’s Purple Chicken because the Port will color the chicken purple. :)

    1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (or baby cereal if you like)

    Combine all ingredients and mix well.
    Add seasoning if you like – pepper, garlic powder, basil, oregano whatever you want.
    Shape mixture into nuggets, or fun shapes.
    Place on baking tray.

  4. Puff pastry appetizer

    Puff pastry
    Black forest ham or regular
    Gruyere cheese/sliced (any kind will work)
    Spicy mustard (or plain)

    Put pastry at room temp on cookie sheet, spread mustard on pastry leaving a ¼ inch border. Lay ham on top overlapping just a little, then put cheese on top of ham. On the edge of pastry you will brush with egg mixture (whole egg mixed with a little water) then lay the other piece of dough on top and crimp edges with a fork. Prick top of pastry every four inches or so with fork. Brush the top with the rest of egg mixture and bake according to the directions on the puff pastry package. Let cool 5 minutes and then cut into pieces.

    This is a quick and easy meat sauce for spaghetti. We love it and I am going to make it tonight and hopefully Seth loves it is well.

    12 oz of Spaghetti
    2 tbsp olive oil
    1 large onion, chopped
    2 carrots, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    3/4 lb ground meat (I use turkey, but the recipe calls from beef)
    kosher salt and pepper
    1 – 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes
    1/2 cup fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan

    Cook Pasta

    Heat Oil in large saucepan over medium heeat. Add onion, carrots and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 8 – 10 mins.

    Increase heat to medium high. Add ground meat, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and cook, breaking up meat with a spoon, until no longer pink, 4 to 5 mins. Add tomatoes and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens, about 5 mins.

    Stir in parsley.

    Serve the pasta with sauce and sprinkle with cheese.


  9. Easy Crockpot Roast

    2 lb. beef roast
    2 cloves garlic – minced
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp black pepper
    1 tsp crushed thyme leaves
    2 cans beef gravy
    1 lb. small red potatoes
    1/2 lb. baby carrots
    1 large yellow onion cut into 8 pieces

    Combine garlic, salt, pepper, and thyme. Rub on both sides of the roast and place roast in the crock pot. Place potatoes, carrots and onion around the roast. Poor both cans of gravy over the top the veggies and roast. Cook for 4 – 6 hours on high.

  10. Roasted Veggies

    This is a perfect toddler finger food, and tastes so good that you (and maybe even your husband!) will be gobbling it down. It’s a great side for the whole family!

    -Take any amount of any root veggies. I generally use sweet potatoes, carrots, beets and brussels sprouts, but any root veggie will work.
    -Cut into cubes (about an inch thick).
    -Place in a bowl and toss with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar and then sprinkle with black pepper, sea salt, dried rosemary and dried garlic to taste. (Salt can be omitted if you wish.)
    -Place in a single layer on a jelly roll pan. Roast at 400 degrees, stirring every 15 minutes until desired tenderness is reached (usually 45-60 minutes total).

    This freezes well. :)

    Weight Watcher Chili

    1 pound lean ground beef or turkey, browned
    1 small onion, chopped
    28 oz. crushed tomatoes
    2-28 oz. canned beans, drained (I use one black and one pinto)
    1 small can of corn, drained
    1 packet taco seasoning
    1 packet dry ranch dressing mix

    Combine ingredients and heat on the stove or in a crockpot.

    Super easy and healthy! It freezes well and makes great leftovers.

    My son loves it too because it isn’t too spicy :)

  12. My two-year-old son (AND husband!) love when I make meatloaf. Here is how I make it…


    1 lb ground bison
    1 fresh tomato diced (or you can use can diced)
    1 onion diced
    1 tbs mustard
    1 egg
    2 bay leaves (I let my son crumble them)
    Approx. 1 1/2 cups ketchup (I use Annie’s Naturals)
    Any spice you are comfortable using you can add. the bay leaves alone flavor it perfectly, I think.

    Preheat your oven to 375. Mix all the wet ingredients together in a small mixing bowl then fold in the bison and bay leaves. I just use my hands and mix it all together real well. Mold it into a loaf and put it on a greased pan with a lift on the sides (I use a glass casserole dish).

    Use a spoon and cover the loaf with the ketchup.

    Bake for about an hour and fifteen minutes or until the ketchup glazes nicely.

    Take out halfway between cooking time to scoop out some white fluid (bison releases a liquid while baked) with a spoon then put back in the oven to finish baking.

    If you like, you can add some more ketchup then serve with some fresh steamed orange or yellow carrots glazed with butter and dark brown sugar or any other veggie your child likes. :)

    I hope you enjoy this recipe…My family looks forward to this dish.

  13. lol oops. I forgot the most important part of the meatloaf recipe. Crumble 1-2 pieces of whole wheat bread to the mix before baking. :) Enjoy!

  14. Easy and Quick Protein Salad

    Grab a 4 cup Tupperware container and layer with:

    1C cooked and diced chicken
    1/2C frozen peas
    1/2C frozen edamame
    1/2C drained and washed black beans
    1/4C feta cheese
    1/4C shredded carrots
    add celery as much as desired
    add cherry tomatoes (not cut) as much as desired
    Fill remaining space with romaine lettuce

    This salad is great to take to work or on-the-go, and keeps well because of the frozen peas and edamame. I like to make 5 containers at a time and have them ready for each day of the week. You can add your favorite dressing, I like Raspberry Pecan. Enjoy!!!
