Baby Test Kitchen

Hi, I am Anna's mom and my new hobby is making baby food.

At the moment, I make very simple baby food of pureed chicken, vegetables, and rice.

This is spinach, mushy white rice, and chicken.

Doesn’t the deep green just scream calcium!

When I make apple puree, it turns out too tart...and Anna doesn't like it. I need to remember to buy ready-made next time.

I really like turning lumps of food into velvety, soft, creamy mush.

To save time, I make baby food in big batches and freeze in ice cube trays. It really is a lot of fun.

  3. I do the same thing! I LOVE my Beaba Babycook machine - it steams everything in 15 min, and then you can blend it in the same vessel.

  7. @ Irena: I wish I wasn't so cheap to buy a Beaba...I hear they are amazing. But for now, I will stick with washing several pots.
