For this week's goal, I wanted to make homemade baby food for my 5-month-old. For both cheapness and goodness sake I make most of the food in my home from scratch--bread, pizza, biscuits, teething biscuits, smoothies, bran muffins, Goldfish, granola, Oreos--so why I never tried to make homemade baby food before now, I'll never know...because seriously, it is so easy.
I found a recipe in my acquired-last-summer-but-didn't-get-around-to-reading-it-until-now copy of Start Fresh by Tyler Florence, famous chef and father of three. Basic recipes with minimal ingredients and simple instructions make this book super easy to use, even for the most inexperienced cook (I mean come on, can you really call steaming a vegetable and then mashing it up a recipe?).
For my baby, I decided to start with sweet potatoes mixed with golden potatoes. If you want to see what I did (and also see some seriously cute baby pics), follow the "Read More" link below!
