For the past 7 months or so my life has been taken over by the kitchen. I’ve been busy creating recipes, doing photo shoots (to the best of my ability!) and editing, all to see this ‘baby’ of mine come to fruition.
Now that I’ve accomplished my goal I can say that the time and effort put in has been all worth it. I am SO proud and ecstatic to announce that my FIRST cookbook is complete and ready to be published for all the world to see (hopefully!)
I’ve compiled 50 healthy, delicious recipes (some posted on the Blog, most of them new!) that will have taste buds dancing and get baby excited about trying new, interesting flavour combinations at meal times.
Having said that, don’t be fooled by the title; “Baby Bites”. The recipes are in fact intended for baby but are made with the entire family in mind. Most of them can be prepared as a family meal or side dish and you can set aside some “bites” for baby in the process.
Each recipe page has a photo of the final product, as well as some nutritional info, quick tips, and serving suggestions (ideal for baby, toddlers as well as the entire family).
Here’s a sneak peek at what you`ll get inside!
On top of the 50 delicious recipes, you also get a list of storage and cooking tips to make your culinary journey a bit easier, as well as a list of essential ingredients so you can stock up your fridge and pantry before having a go at the recipes!
Recipes, you say?! They are conveniently organized by age group, although the suggested age is only a recommendation.
Without further adieu, here a list of the tasty recipes (with a few pics to entice you even more!):
