Baby Friendly Recipes


See that chaotic mess above and the little boy making it? Well, that is my once organized pantry and 10 month old rugrat. This child is literally destroying our house! I have emptied the shelves on every bookshelf, cupboard and dresser from his height down. My home was once so pristeen and well kept. It is not to be that way again for a long, long time. I'm not going to have guests over for at least a few years!


However, despite the mess, I have been having a lot of fun experimenting with recipes to introduce new foods and tastes for Henry. My goal is to keep his food fresh, pure and healthy. That isn't always completely possible, but I do my best. I thought I would share a couple of really easy recipes I've been making for Henry that are healthy and well loved by him!


Baby Pancakes
pancake batter (use ww flour, no sugar)
bananas or another fruit choice


Slice the bananas thinly and coat in pancake batter. Fry in pan as you would a pancake. Cool a bit and serve. He LOVES these!

Baby Quesadillas
small-sized flour tortilla (ww is best)
shredded mild cheddar (the real stuff!)
well-steamed brocolli heads (so they fall apart when touched)


Sprinkle one tortilla with cheese and steamed brocolli. Cover with another tortilla. Microwave for 15-30 seconds. Cut into small squares with a pizza cutter. You can add any types of veggies/cheese you prefer. You could also add shredded chicken.

These are just a couple of fun recipes, but for more awesome meal ideas for your baby, check out these great links:

How many teeth does he have? My granddaughter will be 1 on Nov. 12th and she only has her two bottom teeth. I have been trying to find things she can eat since she's getting tired of baby food.
