Guys...I have been keeping a secret about a little (no wait big) project that I have been working on for a few months now! I am working on my SECOND cookbook that is to be released this fall! This time around it's all about the babies though, and I am so happy to tell you that I am releasing a cookbook, The Homemade Baby, this fall that will be stocked full of recipes for babies just starting on solids all the way through the toddler years!
I have been slacking in the meal prepping department for Parks. I was so on my game at the beginning of the solid food stage and then he got really mobile and I found it super hard to find the time to go pee, let alone fix his homemade meals. Since we entered the can't sit still stage, I won't lie...there has been a hot dog or two thrown into the mix and maybe some mac and cheese...because some days I just need to get food in a hungry and fussy baby's belly and I need fast and easy. Yesterday however, I meal prepped for Parks because my mama guilt of not getting as many nutrients in him each day as possible was weighing heavy on me! Originally I made this dish for just him, and then after tasting the lentils I decided we would be sharing these lentils for a healthy lunch option all week!
I am super excited to start sharing my excitement of making homemade baby food with you! It's only taken me 3 months, but I am finally sharing one of my easiest, first-stage homemade baby food recipes! I'm not gonna lie guys, I have been really struggling trying to get my game together here on My Diary of Us! Between finishing the cookbook, taking on two other major freelance photography projects, and keeping up with a growing and curious boy, I have been having a hard time balancing my time here with you! I promise I will get better, but thank you for your patience in the meantime! Anyway...let's talk about these cinnamon apples, shall we?
