Hello, my name is Michele, and I am a complete ascendancy aberration – which I am alive on, acknowledge you actual much. I am additionally a lover of food, of course.
I ambition I could acquaint you I consistently planned to accomplish babyish aliment for my aboriginal child, but that would be a lie. I did plan to accord my little one alone the best, which is why I purchased three altered brands of amoebic angel borsch to conduct my own affection control.
I tasted anniversary one.
I threw abroad anniversary one.
Okay, I tossed the jars in the recycling bin. But the point is my adulation of aliment fabricated it actual bright that what I’d aloof eaten was not aliment as I knew it. And I absolutely didn’t appetite this to by my daughter’s aboriginal acquaintance with what the aliment apple had to offer.
I went to the market, affective pounds of beginning amoebic fruits, vegetables, spices and herbs. Fittingly, my aboriginal acts of agitated babyish aliment authoritative took abode at my own mother’s house. We started off with simple recipes based on the aftermath in season. Because my ambition was to accomplish purees that tasted bigger again aloof “good” – they had to be amazing – I added pinches of spices and herbs to enhance the accustomed flavors of the produce: apples with cinnamon, candied potatoes with rosemary and carrots with nutmeg. The aftereffect was over 800 ounces – yes, you apprehend that accurately – of flavorful, adorable purees. We’re talking about bisected a year’s account of purees. Can anyone say ambiguous obsessive?
My babyish ate them, my bedmate and I ate them. It was borsch heaven for all of us.

Added than a hobby, it became my mission, and article I relized I could – and should – allotment with added parents who hoped to accession accouchement on the abounding flavors of beginning foods. Not continued afterwards I began creating and testing recipes, I started a blog about them. My “Baby Aliment for Ellie” abstraction got beneath to artlessly “Baby FoodE,” and my online compound home is now absolutely established.
