After six months of her exclusively liquid diet, our little girl recently entered the exciting world of solid foods. Well, ‘solid’ is an exaggeration. It’s more like lovingly-created mush. I’ve been using Cooking For Baby ($20 from for inspiration. Like any good cookbook, it is packed with gorgeous photos and incredibly simple recipes. Each section of the book guides you through the different stages of babies’ changing palettes, explaining which foods and spices to introduce and when. Though we’ve only mastered sweet potatoes and peas thus far, I can’t wait to try the millet and zucchini medley and blackberry and ricotta parfait. Making baby food is especially easy with a Babysteps Electric Food Mill, though a food processor would work just fine. All you need is that, a steamer and some large ice cube trays for freezing your creations and you are good to go!
