Oct 04, 2009Probably the best baby food cookbook that exists. And probably because once you get out of the purée section, you find yourself saying If I just double the recipe and "thinly slice" instead of "finely dice" the lamb then this will be frickin' awesome. Seriously. A baby food cookbook that is unafraid to cite coriander, garlic, and/or polenta in the recipes... Well, it's starting to sound an awful lot like a normal adult cookbook. Maybe even a gourmet cookbook.
Sep 06, 2010Until I laid my hands on this, I hadn't read any baby cookbooks at all. Wow, was this full of a lot of useful information! I sincerely learned several something-news in each chapter! The preparation instructions actually informed my choices regarding what items got put on my Christmas wishlist! There's a "baby broth" recipe (on page 44) that I may make my regular homemade stock (since most store-bought stocks are unsafe for me.) I think I'll copy out the spices and herbs info pages (42/43), Until I laid my hands on this, I hadn't read any baby cookbooks at all. Wow, was this full of a lot of useful information! I sincerely learned several something-news in each chapter! The preparation instructions actually informed my choices regarding what items got put on my Christmas wishlist! There's a "baby broth" recipe (on page 44) that I may make my regular homemade stock (since most store-bought stocks are unsafe for me.) I think I'll copy out the spices and herbs info pages (42/43), because I'm still not 100% certain what herbs and spices go with what. There are tonnes of recipes in this book that, although they're billed as baby food, I think I'll try making them for my whole family, like the cheese sauce (pg 95), whipped cauliflower (pg 36), rice noodle primavera (88), blackberry ricotta parfait (83), avacado cheese spread & fruity smoothie (66), buckwheat crepes (96), pumpkin alphabet soup (101), veggie fritters (107), hidden veggie sauce (112), meatballs w/polenta (114 -- I've been looking for a good meatball recipe!), fish fingers (124), pumpkin pancakes (132), & carrot cupcakes (134). So, I'm either doing a lot of copying out, or I'll buy myself a copy of this helpful little book! ...more
May 19, 2012decent...some of the foods were a little to much, but the basic baby food is great!! lots of great tips for raising a healthy eater
May 14, 2011Really neat book. I can't wait to start making some of the recipes!!
Jul 29, 2013Checked out from library - will probably end up purchasing. It has way more than purees. It does a good job of introducing spices and different textures to growing baby.
Jun 05, 2011I thought it was a good book to get the basics of pureeing baby food but it didn't really go beyond that and that's what I was looking for.
Jun 27, 2009Yikes! Why does it freak me out that in about a month, Sam will be eating something other than breast milk? This has some good easy recipes - but really, how hard can pureeing fruits & veggies be? I like how it is broken up in stages from 6 - 18 months.
Oct 12, 2015Basic recipes, nothing wrong with it. I just preferred Little Foodie to this one, and there's really no need for multiple baby food books. I have a feeling ours is going to be more of a baby led weaning type kid and this one isn't helpful for both type.
May 24, 2014I received this book 5 years ago, after the birth of my first daughter. The recipes and feeding suggestions are simple to understand and easy to execute. Since delivering my twins last year, we have revisited this book and have found it as handy as we remembered it to be.
Feb 04, 2016Saving this for future reference. I learned a few ways to prepare purées and tried some foods for Leo we may not have otherwise. Mostly common sense stuff, but it gave us some ideas of cooking methods to try.
Jun 05, 2011A friend recommended this book to me, because I was interested in making my own baby food. I read through the intro and some of the recipes, and I'm anxious to try some of them. Just gotta wait for little man to get old enough to eat this stuff!
Feb 21, 2015What a great, helpful book to lay the foundation for first foods. The recipes are simple, the photos are gorgeous, and I was left with a feeling of "I ca do this" when I finished it. Highly recommend!
May 16, 2011Haven't tried all these recipes yet, but I have tried some. Fun easy beginning way to start making your own baby food...all the way up to simple toddler food that adults can also eat. Have consulted it quite a bit the last couple of months.
Jun 15, 2010Great simple recipes for fresh baby and toddler meals. I like the simplicity of the recipes in this book. While it does contain some involved multi-ingredient meals, I find myself refering to it for the easy options for roasting or steaming veggies. Great polenta and bulgar recipes too!
Jul 08, 2013I am really excited about this book. I am using the recipes to make side dishes for Husband and myself and also to feed to Baby. It is really fantastic and proposes a good mix of flavors. We are only in the second section so far, but it is great.
Oct 09, 2012Its nice to have some baby food recipes for babies that don't want bland food. i love tat this has basic baby food with spices and flavor! plus it has foods you wouldn't think of making for baby and they are made in such a way that make food interesting and baby can create a great pallet to shape their little tastebuds for the future!
Jul 01, 2014I found these recipes to be nice and simple, but fun and creative as far as ingredients. It was nice to have a reference for how to prepare certain foods and how to pair them with other ingredients. I borrowed it from the library, but I think I might buy it. It covers a lot of time in an infant's eating development.
Jun 04, 2013I liked this book. It had some good information about starting a baby on solid foods. I used a few of the recipes, but most of the recipes in this book are super fancy, even though it's baby food. Like really weird, things too fancy even to cook for myself and my husband. Any of this info could be found online. Plus, making your own baby food is super easy - just cook whatever until it's mushy, blend it, add water if needed, then freeze in silicone ice cube trays. No big deal.
Dec 12, 2011We didn't feed either of our children purees (we took a baby-led weaning approach), so the first half of this book wasn't very helpful. The recipes in the second half have been great! I love the variety in the recipes. This book goes beyond typical American "kid food" like burgers and fries, peanut butter and jelly, and cheerios and gives little ones new flavors and textures to try early on. Yay for real food!
Jul 30, 2012I especially liked this for the toddler-friendly family meal recipes at the end. I could see us doing some of them, though not anything involving lamb as a personal preference. This book has a lot of information in it about introducing solids, which would certainly be helpful for first time moms. I also like that they use some vegetables and fruits that aren't mainstream with baby food companies, like papaya. I'll be purchasing this book, I believe.
Apr 09, 2010Update: I made a recipe tonight from this book, "Little Veggie Fritters," which was delicious and not just for children.
Oct 22, 2011This is an excellent baby cookbook. It is one of the few baby cookbooks that actually provide instructions on how to thaw frozen baby food (page 15) as well as how to freeze it. There is a handy chart (page 11) listing the most easily digestible foods for baby's first tastes, the foods most likely to cause gas or colic in babies, and the foods to which many babies will have allergic reactions.
Jan 13, 2012My baby just started eating solid foods and this cookbook is like my bible. I refer to it all the time, and not just for his food either. The section on herbs and spices is useful for cooking for the rest of the family. There are other sections in addition to the recipes that are quite helpful on how to store food, how much babies eat, different food textures, finger foods and snacks, tips on getting toddlers to eat, and what nutrients are in foods.
Jan 20, 2018So good ideas and some that I will never make...I like that the author included what spices and herbs you can use in baby food.
Mar 06, 2018What I loved most about this book is the lists of spices and off the beaten path veggies you can use for baby. It’s full of charts and allows you to think outside of the box. Great for molding a great food base and healthy palette for your child.
