Creamy Tropical Fruit Salad Smoothie

There's not much to say about this recipe-except that it's delicious! I literally had to stop myself from eating all of it after preparing it for my son. (I even caught my husband sneaking my son's leftovers the following day!!) Who would have thought that a recipe intended as baby food would turn into an adult snack?!!

4 lg. organic strawberries

1/2 banana

1/2 mango

3 tbsp. greek yogurt

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 tbsp. coconut (optional)

1/4 cup milk (or…

Indian-Spiced Lentil Soup

Lentils are a meal the whole family can enjoy. They are a hearty substitute for meat, make a great addition to soups and stews, and they freeze well. I make lentils on a regular basis for my husband and I and usually make extra to freeze. If you do choose to prepare this recipe only for your baby I suggest cutting the recipe in half (and you'll still have enough to freeze for future meals!)

1 cup brown lentils

5 cups water

2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

2 cloves garlic,…

The Perfect Asparagus and Potato Frittata

For the longest time I've assumed that I've mastered the art of making the perfect frittata-until that memorable day when my mother-in-law offered to teach me her secret "trick." (There was no way I was going to have a frittata-off with her! At Easter, in her part of the country they make mammoth-sized frittatas, sometimes with up to 40 eggs!) Having said that (to my credit), I think my frittatas were pretty good, but now thanks to her I've finally figured out what that one little technique…

Gluten-Free Veal and Rapini Mini-Meatballs

Who doesn't love meatballs? I've tried a variety of recipes in the past but was inspired to make this one when discovering some rapini in the "bottomless pit" in the fridge! It hadn't grown any fur so I knew it was safe to eat! ;-)

I initially was planning on making burgers for myself (I already figured my husband wouldn't eat them because rapini is on his list of "stinky veggies!") I tricked him had him taste them but did not tell him what was in them. Strangely, he didn't…

Mexican Riviera Dreaming!

I woke up this morning feeling kind of "blah!" Could have been the early morning wake-up call (aka my son screaming in his crib for no apparent reason!), or the long day yesterday (celebrating my son's first birthday!!) or simply the lack of sun outside! We had such amazing weather during March Break that I did't even care whether or not I had joined the masses of people who took off to Mexico for the week. Having said that, now that "winter" is back (although it's not as cold as it should…
