So for the mini muffins. These work really well for our kiddo. A mini muffin is far more appealing than a blob of mush on a plate. And also probably less intimidating visually as far as portion size. But mini muffins are not the bulk of the recipes as some reviews suggest, just some of our son's favorites.
We've gotten our kiddo to try and enjoy way more foods with this book.
It may not be for everyone, but if you have a few minutes to cook a few meals a week this might be a good option for you.
It's easy to follow, starting with what you will need overall and then specifically for each recipe. The books begins with baby and grows into toddler foods.
Baby food combinations - so simple and yummy
Baby food with herbs - I never would have thought of this!
Meat introduction - made me comfortable introducing meat to my baby
Mac and Cheese - with four additional combinations for veggies and flavors
Minis - everything from muffins, sandwiches, pitas, wraps, etc!
Turkey meatloaf - my older child loved this.
As someone who is not comfortable in the kitchen, but wanted to make all natural, homemade food for my baby - this book is my go to reference. The pictures are inspiring. The author gives tons of easy choices - such as four kinds of fruit salad combinations. It seems so simple, and it is, but I so appreciate the options. I also like knowing exactly how long the food is good in the refrigerator and how long to freeze.
We are a gluten free, dairy free family - and this book is not. THe author uses white flour, and wheat bread, etc, but I'm used to substitutions. I used my gluten free bread and coconut milk without any issue. There are also recipes with cheese, but other than the mac and cheese, I just left it out. We will do cheese on occasion.
More fabulous recipes include:
Veggie Sushi Rolls
goat cheese and Veggie pinwheels
Veggie Spice Muffins
The bite sized portions and the final products are easy to pack into kids lunches for daycare, school, or trips to grandparents house. I'm not a Betty Crocker (wish I was!) and some of the ideas in the book are more crafty than I, but I was able to make the pinwheels and they looked decent. Not anything I'd post on pinterest, but not totally embarrassing. Meaning anyone can do these combinations if you follow the directions.
I'm very happy with this book and will get more by this author. I would also purchase this book for any friend or family member having a baby, with a picky eating toddler, or a mom who is used to eating fast food who is trying to make healthy choices as she becomes a mother. Very well done.
