The best part of this book is that the recipes really are good. We fix the recipes for ourselves (the whole family) and just chop or puree for the little one if needed. I'll probably keep this book even after our little one isn't little any more!
I've already bought copies for friends with babies.
There is a paragraph in which he talks about the natural response adults have in thinking baby food should just taste yucky. After cooking up some of these, I have no problem tasting my daughter's food and getting excited in what she is eating. Also, I am so stinking thankful for a cook who talks about organic but doesn't seem judgmental and insulting.
**For registry moms or those wondering what they might need to apply Tyler's recipes... I recommend a) a rice cooker with steaming basket and b) bpa free, freezer jars such as those that are 2 or 4oz, or c) the ice cube trays (bpa free also, with lids) work great. Get ones that you can press the cubes out from the bottom.
The first two above-mentioned recipes were too bland and flavorless to bother fixing again, but the risotto is a keeper (after major modifications) I tweaked the cooking method so that it now works. The flavor is outstanding and my daughter loves it.
So at this point I'm conflicted about trying any more recipes. That one dish was amazing, but I'm not sure if I want to go through the trouble of trying any of the others. The ingredients are too pricey (organic/grass-fed/ fresh farmer's market veg etc.) to risk wasting. And frankly I'd rather not see the look of confusion on my husbands face when I served him and our toddler bland, utterly unseasoned, weird lasagne skillet "soup."
Green bean, potato and kale puree (for the baby, but I even think it's yummy)
Spinach and roasted pears with parm (ditto)
Summer squash, yukon gold potatoes, and parmesan puree (I separated some out for a side dish, too - heavenly)
Roasted salmon with green pea risotto
Sweet potato and blueberry pancakes (made these at a family reunion and everyone raved, asked for the recipe)
Split pea soup with bacon and sweet potatoes
The recipes are unfussy and (with good, fresh ingredients) allow the flavors of the fruits and vegetables to shine. This book actually inspired me to try some of my own combinations. I highly recommend this as a family, not just baby, cookbook.
