Z would only try sweet potatoe, sweet potatoe and then sweet potatoe (mixed with boob juice).
Yesterday he tried butternut squash (tastes like sweet potatoe) and today we tried sweet potatoe with peas and he actually ate it!

Very good indeed!

When I make a roast (or anything that will be cooked in the oven) I take a piece of butternut, deseed it but leave the skin on, wrap it in some foil and stick it in the oven next to whatever I am cooking. C just loves it. He is not so keen on steamed butternut though. It seems that the slow oven roast intesifies the flavour. I am as keen on it as he is and will polish off any bit that he won't eat.

I have done the same with Apple and he loves that just as much.

I am going to try to do the same with a sweet-potato tomorrow and see how he likes it. Not expecting much given that his appetite is not quite returned as yet.

Cauliflower cheese with mash and gravy. Not sure that was at 6 months... may have been a bit later mmmmmm later on I added chicken.

Her absolute fave was my chicken casserole with mash, not sure how old she was for that because it's a grown up dish with wine and cream etc... probably a bit older again.

I gave the recipe to my sister and never actually got it back but let me see if I can still remember it.... I don't 'do' weights and measures, just whatever I've got in, so it's a bit approximate.

A chicken, jointed and skinned.
bag of Carrots
couple of Onions
about 10 Mushrooms
bit of plain flour (couple of tablespoons)

splodge of butter, dash of oil

Half a pint of white wine
small tub of cream
Pint of chicken stock
quarter teaspoon of allspice (V important!)
salt and pepper

Big metal casserole pan

brown the chicken in half the butter oil until nice and brown brown (yes, brown brown is an official cookery term :D ) Remove from pan.

Chop your carrots and onions put them in the pan the other half of the butter oil, toss them and then put the lid on and sweat them for a few mins.

sprinkle the flour on and stir around so that the carrots and onions are all claggy with flour, cook this while stirring for a couple of minutes and then add the stock slowly while stirring, bring it to the boil.


Add chicken, sliced mushrooms, wine, allspice, salt and pepper, bring up to the boil. Turn heat down and stir in the cream. Put the lid on and stick it in a low/med oven for a couple of hours.

Don't taste it until it's cooked.

Very nice with dumplings and buttery mash....


kids love it :D

Very first foods - DD was absolutely nuts for pumpkin (I know its the wrong season!), butternut squash, sweet potato as veggie purees, loved poached pears, peaches and plums as fruit purees.

Then we went onto more interesting things like casseroles, spag bol, various pastas and also fish - plaice flakes really well into little tiny bits.

DD is dairy intolerant so I found the weaning bit quite a challenge although my culinary imagination has come on in leaps and bounds!

Good luck!

Oh poached pears are just lovely!!!

Just peel a pear, slice it, put in either in a pan and cover with water and simmer OR in a dish with water, cover and micro for a bit. You'll know when it's done as it will go clearish and you can mush it with your finger.

Also nice for grown ups with ice cream :D

Mains - Apple and pea, carrot and sweetcorn and my variation on the Annabel Karmel Lovely Lentils recipe. My version had potato not sweet potato and parsnip and carrot. Chicken and sweetcorn was also popular.

Desserts - Apple puree mixed with baby porridge, mashed banana with breast milk.

DD loves frozen peas and sweetcorn. Just throw a few handfuls in a pyrex jug, top up with boiling water and blast in the microwave for 2-3 mins until hot, then drain and blend. You can stir a bit of cheese in from 6 months, or a bit of butter.

Raisin and cinnamon pancakes

Throw the following into a bowl:
1 small egg
1 tablespoon of plain flour
1 tablespoon of self raising flour
1 desertspoon of melted butter
1/2 teaspoon of sugar (brown is nicest but white works fine)
A pinch of cinnamon
Enough milk (can be cows, formula or boob) to make a batter, how much will depend on how big your egg is, how generous you are with the spoons of flour and to some extent things like how warm your kitchen is and whether you keep your eggs in the fridge or not. I like my pancake batter thickish so it doesn't run all over the pan, so just a splash of milk for me.

Whisk it all together then stir in 1 of those little child sized boxes of raisins. Heat some more butter in a frying pan and when its good and hot, drop in spoonfuls of the mixture. Let them cook for a few minutes then turn them over, cook on the other side and then plonk them on a plate. Try not to eat them all before your child!

If you prefer and your child is over one year, leave out the sugar and serve them with a bit of honey instead. The batter will keep covered in the fridge for 2 days if you don't use it all at once.

Mixed with a bit of calvados. I must stress that this is for grown up only! Unless your LO really won't sleep. Joking, honestly.

Fab recipes......

Check out the Little Dish web site (www.little dish.co.uk) for great recipes. I've just made the Chicken, Sweet Potato and Apricot casserole which is so divine I could have eaten the whole lot myself. My LOs will love it and it could be pureed for younger babies. Also just made the Lovely Lentils with added chicken. I tripled each of the recipes and made 6 portions of each.

I've had a throughly lovely evening cooking for my precious girls. I work full time and the girls' nanny usually does their cooking so I feel really chuffed that the girls will be eating my meals made with love this weekend.
