The author is thought to be an expert on baby foods, and has her own line of products and books. Of the three books I own, I like hers the best. She also covers proteins, which can be hard to navigate. I plan to make the salmon blend in the 6-7 month old section this month. The foods can be individually frozen which is convenient. I used a food processor for most recipes, though a blender could be used.
The book is arranged in sections by stages and months, which makes it easy to read. The color photos are appealing also, the food actually looks good. She includes menu planners and variations to the recipes, as well. The getting started section has everything you need to begin cooking and serving solids, as well as a section on if your baby is ready. So she starts with purees, moves to blends and finger foods and lists yummy foods at 10 months, like chicken burgers and banana muffins.
If you want just one book about solids, I would recommend this one. It's all you will need from around 6 mo to 12 months. There are many nutritious and fairly easy recipes that you will feel good about making for your baby.
