It’s really starting to set in that I’m having a baby in a month!
I didn’t really notice that my appetite changed that much with either of my pregnancies, but oh boy did it change when I was nursing my first! Give me all the carbs and protein and oh there’s vegetables okay that’s fine too…
I’m always looking for ways to save time in the kitchen, aren’t you?
And since so many of my recipes use minced garlic and garlic can be so darned frustrating to peel and mince, these garlic dots are my absolute favorite kitchen time saver.
Since this month’s Recipe Redux theme is cocktails and mocktails, you know I’ve gotta make a mocktail for all you pregnant mamas out there! (Including myself!)
Showers and celebrations with friends abound this time of year. Show us your healthy, colorful drink concoctions for festivities like bridal showers and graduation celebrations.
When I first heard that this month’s Recipe ReDux theme was about reducing food waste, of course my first thought was, “Hmm, now what can I make with all the scraps of food my toddler doesn’t eat…?”

You won’t find many recipes for baby purees here at The Baby Steps Dietitian. Any recipe I have for baby or toddler food, like my DIY Strawberry Yogurt or Banana Oat Blender Muffins, is something adults could enjoy, too. I just don’t believe in taking the extra time to cook for individual members of my family when one recipe could suit us all.
Need dinner on the table in 10 minutes?
Confession: I almost didn’t post this recipe! At first I thought it was just too simple…hardly a recipe at all, really. But then I realized that because I am all about simple recipes, and because my family legitimately eats this meal every single week,
