We’ve been introducing new foods to Riley very slowly. With the family history of allergies and his already found sensitivity to dairy through my milk and his eczema, his pediatrician and Landon’s allergy doctor want us to just go slow with food, especially those top 8.
For the longest time (it seems) we’ve just been doing single food meals, some combinations (like applesauce in his oatmeal) but we’ve just recently gotten enough foods that I can start making “baked goods” for him. So far the really “baked good” he’s had have been Mum Mums, which let me tell you are super awesome for starting self feeders. They are easy to hold and really melt the second they get wet. They have also have Original and Vegetable flavors. They also sell them by the case and if you use the subscribe and save option they’re even cheaper.
Today I made these Oats and ‘Nanner Drops found here. They were a success! They are like the texture of a chewy oatmeal cookie. There’s other recipes I have from Landon that I’m anxious to start trying (and sharing with you!)
We have longed for an easy way to make good and cost effective ice cream for our whole family to share. With our Cuisinart 1-1/2-Quart Automatic Ice Cream Maker it is very easy to experiment, because in 20 min you can taste your result without cranking!
Wanting to try something new, I went looking for a crock pot recipe that was easy and different. I was very pleasantly surprised to find this recipe and that it met both criteria. Landon loves it too, which is a big plus!
Looking for a refreshing but nourishing blend of allergy free goodness? We have tried for many years to come up with a good tasting and allergy free smoothie. Before I knew that I was allergic to milk I would go to Jamba Juice all of the time and I loved it, but it did not love me back! Now that we have found the recipe that has a great taste and is easy to make, we have been making it more nutritious by adding ingredients like fresh spinach. Surprisingly you can’t even taste it, but the color that it becomes is a dead giveaway. Adding the 15 leafs of spinach turns the entire smoothie a nice greenish brown.
