Starting Solids : how we do it

This is what we had for dinner last night - eggs, potatoes, and freshly-peeled oranges (oh, and I drank a cup of grapefruit juice...I love the stuff) : This is what our 9-month-old had for dinner last night (it's the exact same thing that we teeny tiny bites that she fed to herself): I […]

Martha Stewart says I'm a thoughtful hostess

Homemade Pizza

We finally made homemade pizza. And it turned out pretty delicious. In case you're wondering: Yes, we did purposely leave that top corner pepperoni-free for our 2-year-old. Oddly, she likes pepperonis uncooked {see above}, but not cooked. I think I'd like to make homemade pizza more often (I'm sure it's much healthier than delivery or […]
