Eating Glory

Sam has just started eating solids. We've started with a few simple ideas like Cream of Wheat when we have it for breakfast on these cold spring mornings. This morning I pulled out the BabyCook my MIL got us to make fresh food for the precious little one. I have to say that it made the best applesauce in about 5 minutes. Well ok, steamed apples all blended smooth but it really is the best. Sam is not so sure about the apples yet but it seems to be taking her a couple of days to love something new. The machine is so Thrifty that I wanted to mention it at Green Baby Guide. It is not the cheapest purchase but it made just the right amount to freeze some and keep some for a few days. It is quiet and easy to clean, and will make a nice processor for us as well. I'm so excited now about making homemade baby food. Sandy was also generous and purchased a cookbook to go with it, so we can use it for a few years to come.


  1. Given the price of prepared baby food, I'm sure that the appliance would quickly pay for itself in savings! Not to mention being able to make healthier food for your baby.

  2. I had never even heard of this machine! Thanks for this tip! I agree that making homemade is so much cheaper, fresher, and healthier than opting for prepackaged stuff. Your baby will be thankful for weeks and months to come! Thanks for joining us this week for Thrifty Green Thursday!

  3. I've never heard of the BabyCook, either, but it does sound marvelous. I finally bought a food processor when I was expecting a baby, and now I don't know how I lived without it for all those years. I use it all the time.

    Thanks for the Thrifty Green Thursday tip!
