Prepping for Baby #2

Posted by John on March 25th, 2013

Hey guys!  First off, yesterday was Lisa’s birthday.  She’s turned 25 again.  It wouldn’t be appropriate to tell you how many times she’s turned 25, so let’s just stick with 25.  To celebrate, we drove to Delaware to get Mexican for dinner.  There aren’t any good places near us unfortunately.  Although Delaware isn’t too far […]

Pumpkin Pie

I went over to my parents’ house earlier this week. We picked a rainy day and did some Fall baking! We ran over to the grocery store to get some ideas, and decided to make homemade Pumpkin Pie.  Everyone in my family loves this Fall treat. We used organic canned pumpkin. This stuff tastes super […]

Homemade Apples for Baby

Posted by Lisa on September 7th, 2011

Up next for the LO to try: apples! At the grocery store I picked up four medium sized organic Gala apples.  Apples are part of “The Dirty Dozen” so buying organic is a really good idea. Supplies needed for this one are apples (duh), vegetable peeler, apple corer, and a food processor. After washing and […]

Baby’s First Sweet Potatoes

Homemade Organic Baby Food

Posted by Lisa on August 10th, 2011

Today I cooked up my first batch of homemade baby food for the little one. I made bananas last week, but that doesn’t really count since all I did was mash and freeze. This time I whipped up some delicious sweet peas. Relatively simple. First I bought a frozen bag of (organic) peas: I opened […]
