Mini Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

by RealMomofNJ on July 11, 2013 in Adult Food, Baby Food, Food & Recipes

Every so often an occasion arises for me to send some food into day care. It’s always either for one of the RealKid’s birthdays, or a holiday gathering. I don’t want to bring cupcakes because A) it’s unoriginal, B) I want to give the kids the chance to have something they wouldn’t otherwise have and C) it’s just more…

Thank You! Mac & Cheese Recipe

by RealMomofNJ on April 10, 2013 in Adult Food, Baby Food, Food & Recipes

Are you ready for a mac & cheese recipe to rock your world? Yeah you are.

So, you know I cook from scratch, and you probably know that I will do anything—ANYTHING—that Alton Brown tells me to do. Well, long ago on his cooking/educational show, Good Eats, he told me that it is just as easy to make real mac &…

Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

by RealMomofNJ on March 18, 2013 in Adult Food, Baby Food, Food & Recipes

RealDad hates beans (totally ridiculous, I know). I happen to love them, but I don’t make a lot of bean soups or dishes because of him. So I take advantage of when he travels and make at least one bean-riffic meal. Most recently that meal was black bean soup.

Black bean soup is delicious already, but this one is even…

Quick & Easy & Real Apple-Cinnamon Oatmeal

by RealMomofNJ on December 18, 2012 in Adult Food, Baby Food, Food & Recipes

I do not feed my kids instant oatmeal. Not only because the quality of oatmeal is poor (it’s overly overprocessed and thus not as nutritious as rolled oats or steel-cut oatmeal), but because there is too much sugar and other junk. As it turns out, making rolled oats doesn’t take a whole lot longer than reconstituting the instant stuff….

Baby Food to Go

by RealMomofNJ on September 17, 2012 in Baby Food, Food & Recipes, Tips

So yes, making baby food works great when you’re at home, but it doesn’t work well for on the go, right? Ha! Of course it works on the go.

I generally keep several food cubes defrosted and waiting in lidded plastic bowls in the fridge so I can grab-and-go if we’ll be out during N’s mealtimes. Generally. Sometimes I get…

Lentil soup

Lentil Soup for All

by RealMomofNJ on September 12, 2012 in Adult Food, Baby Food, Food & Recipes

I’m trying to force fall to start by preparing cold-weather meals. I kicked off my end-of-summer campaign by making lentil soup.

I made the soup for 2 reasons: first, I love it, and second, it makes great baby food. I pureed 2 cups of the soup and got about 14 cubes of soup for N. My recipe is based on…

How Do You Balance Solids and Milk?

by RealMomofNJ on August 01, 2012 in Baby Food, Breastfeeding

I feel like all N does is eat. He is 6.5 months old and he eats 8 times a day between 630am and 830pm: 5 feedings of breast milk and 3 of solids.

Here’s his approximate schedule:

630am – Breastfeed

830am – Rice cereal (2 Tbs) with fruit mixed in (2 Tbs)

1030am – Breastfeed or 5…
