Baby's Food

It has been a while since I posted a recipe for my favorite kitchen companion... Beaba's BabyCook! But since little Miss Penny has entered the exciting world of baby food and the BabyCook is once again a permanent fixture on my counter top, I thought it was time. As you know, I don't really cook with recipes, so please excuse my "measurements."

Creamy Cheesey Broccoli

                2 Handfuls of Broccoli Florets (I use organic frozen broccoli from Whole Foods)
                1 Handful of Shredded Cheddar Cheese
                1 Pat of Butter
                Salt and Pepper to Taste

Put the appropriate amount of water in the BabyCook (to the "3" line for frozen veggies). Put the broccoli florets in the steaming basket and let steam. This will take about 12 minutes. When the cooking light goes off, take the steam basket out of the BabyCook and pour the "Steam water" in to a little container, you will need this in a minute. Pour the steamed broccoli into the blender basket and add the cheese, butter, and salt & pepper. Begin to blend adding the "steam water" a little at a time until you get the desired consistency. Let cool and serve to your baby.

Bon Appetite, Little One.

Thank you to EVERYONE who has entered my giveaway so far! I hope you are laughing at my random, incoherent ramblings on twitter... I'm embarrassed.

Jess, I am so happy to see another momma who makes their own baby food! I decided before my daughter was born that I was going to use cloth diapers (What the H was I thinking??) That didn't go over as well as I thought, I also said I would exclusively nurse (again, I had some MAJOR problems in the milk making department) and finally I knew that I was going to make my own baby food, this is the ONLY thing that has worked out for us! I LOVE making my own food for my baby girl! To me it is so much better for her because YOU can control the quality of ingredients. Good for you!! Thanks for posting this yummy looking recipe :)

I love the picture of your daughter! I did not make Aiyana's food, but I did make most of Chloe's. It is so much better for them.

I think that making food for your child is genius! I love it and Penny's face is priceless! That's a joyful face, right?

I've been wanting to try to make baby food for Jarrett. Maybe I will look into that cookbook. But, I'll also need to buy a food processor! It looks like Penny is lovin' some broccoli!
