Grilled Corn and Black Bean SaladAll seasoning measurements are approximations, since I really just tossed in a little of this and a little of that until it was perfect! You may need to adjust measurements for your own taste.
Lunchbox Spinach Quinoa BakeThese protein and veggie packed squares are a family favorite. Cut into small squares and they make a great lunchbox addition for kiddos!
Roasted Root Vegetables with Herbs de ProvencalA super simple to prepare side dish that is perfect for the holidays! You can serve this alongside any main dish (poultry, beef, fish, etc.) and it looks beautiful, but takes hardly any real work. Coercing a few kids or friends to peel the veggies for you makes it even faster :)
Yogurt and Fruit with Quinoa CrunchI eat fruit with yogurt for breakfast often, so I am always looking for ways to change it up. This quinoa crunch adds texture and protein!
Orange Sesame Grilled ChickenA super easy dish to serve with Cold Soba Noodles! You can easily use this marinade for grilled tofu instead!
Coconut Curry Mussels with Lemongrass and LimeOne of my potential entries into the Coconut and Lime Blogiversary Recipe Contest!
Garlic Roasted Shrimp and Mango SaladA quick tip: This salad comes together in ten minutes if you don't have to prepare the shrimp! Buy a few pounds of raw shrimp, peeled and deveined. Then take five minutes when you get home from the market to remove all of the tails, and place 1/2 lb. portions of shrimp in freezer bags. If you pull one out of the freezer in the morning, they will be defrosted by lunchtime and ready to go.
Grilled Garlic Artichokes with Spicy Garlic AioliThe aioli is perfect for dipping, but is also great in place of tartar sauce with fish, or as a sandwich spread. Adapted from a recipe by Mark Bittman
Roasted Eggplant with Peppers, Onions, and YogurtAdapted from Mark Bittman's "How to Cook Everything Vegetarian: Simple Meatless Recipes for Great Food", page 298
Curried Eggplant with Coconut MilkThis is an incredibly creamy, flavorful, and healthy dish! Serve it over rice or with pita as a meal, or serve alone in small ramekins as an appetizer. Adapted from How to Cook Everything Vegetarian, page 296
Asian Salmon Cakes with Soy MayoYou will need to have prepared "Eli's Asian Salmon- 2 ways" for this dish. See link below -
PB&J Baby TrufflesNuts and seeds are such little protein powerhouses that I can't think of any reason not to include them in my son's diet. If you are ready to give nuts to your little, this recipe is perfect for a snack that includes protein and fruit, and it's delicious. It's actually like Baby Crack. If you aren't ready, bookmark this one for later, because it'll be a huge hit. I made these based on the fact that I'm obsessed with Lara bars and have meant to make my own for ages. The name is a bit deceiving, because they actually don't include peanut butter. They taste like they do, though!
Baby Chicken Salad with Soy MayoI'm a Miracle Whip girl. I married a Mayonnaise guy. I have no idea what will happen with Jude. Except that so far I won't feed him either one. I read the ingredients for the first time on the back of the jar of MW and decided he wouldn't get to taste it. Enzyme modified egg yolks didn't sound all that yummy to me. But then neither did whipping up some raw egg yolks to make real mayo for my little man. I decided to make some soy mayo using a recipe I found in an old recipe collection my boss got when she did Outward Bound in the 70's. Hand typed, thread bound, and full of gritty vegetarian and vegan fare that would make a hippie proud. I made a few adjustments for Jude, and was actually pretty impressed with the outcome. I quartered the recipe and it was still enough for his portion and a big bowl for me. Once you make your baby's salad, feel free to add a bit of spicy dijon mustard or more vinegar to your own. It's awesome on a bed of greens with some walnuts and dried cherries!
Carrot Apple Cheddar BitesFeeding a growing boy gets really interesting once he decides to be independent and feed himself. Get ready for prunes smeared in the hair and far flung bits of Cheerio to appear in random places days later. One of the ways to avoid a little of the mess and to allow your little to still explore the fun of self feeding is combo finger foods. Jude had issues with finger foods at first, in that all he could pick up were Cheerios and puffs. Banana chunks slipped right from his fingers like a bar of wet soap. Even when rolled in baby cereal. Any cooked fruit or veggie shot right out of his hands. It was sad to watch, really. He'd try so hard to pick up a bite, only to have it escape him inches from his mouth. And a kid can't live on baby puffs, even if they are fun to stick to his forehead. I started making Jude fruit and veggie bites so he'd be able to feed himself something nutritious that he could actually hang on to. Now they are his favorite snacks. They're delicious, honestly. I make a couple of different variations, and now I actually make them double sized. They obviously defrost faster when small, so make whatever is most convenient for you and your babykins.
Strawberry Rhubarb CompoteSpring has finally sprung! That means spring fruits and veggies are popping up in markets all over, including one of my favorites! Tart rhubarb pairs perfectly with sweet strawberries, and you can make a compote in ten minutes. Stir it into yogurt, serve it over grilled chicken or top whole grain pancakes like o did here for my bday boy!
Clean Coconut and Chocolate Chip Banana BreadMy mother's banana bread recipe is almost famous. I have struggled for ages trying to make a clean version using no white sugar, white flour or vegetable oil and they always fall flat! This time it worked! This banana bread is my Holy Grail Food!

Here’s some quick information regarding how our cookbook platform works, along with a few tips for making the most of cookbooks you add to your library.
But first… If you’re new to BakeSpace, take a minute to visit our "About" page to learn more about our delicious community, which has been helping home cooks swap recipes and connect with fellow foodies worldwide since 2006.
What is the Cookbook Café Platform?Cookbook Café is our one-of-a-kind cookbook publisher, marketplace and reader. It empowers everyone to create, market and distribute a cookbook as both a web-based eBook and an iPad app. It also makes it incredibly easy for home cooks to discover and use amazing grassroots cookbooks they won't find anywhere else. Since 2012, we've published thousands of cookbooks authored by home chefs, nonprofit organizations, clubs, brands, etc. Our goal is to democratize cookbook publishing and make it easy to build an online library of amazing grassroots cookbooks.
How do I "download" a cookbook?You don't need to "download" cookbooks or deal with any files. All of the cookbooks you select (free and paid) using Cookbook Café become available to you automatically on any device (computer, tablet or smartphone) whenever you’re logged-in to your free BakeSpace account.
When you see a cookbook you like, simply click the green "Get it Now" button. If you're not logged in to BakeSpace, you'll be asked to login (or join) so the cookbook can be added to your cookbook library. Once in your library, you can access the cookbook anytime, anywhere via BakeSpace.com, as well as our Cookbook Café iPad app.
While you're checking out cookbooks, also take some time to visit other parts of the delicious BakeSpace.com community where you can swap recipes and connect with others who share your passion for food and the culinary lifestyle.
Get ready to enjoy a uniquely smart and social cookbook experience!Once a cookbook is added to your BakeSpace library, our proprietary recipe indexing technology makes it easy for you to find any specific recipe across all of your cookbooks… so there's no need to remember which cookbook contains that perfect recipe. In addition, you can connect directly with each cookbook author, leave comments/reviews and even ask questions about recipe substitutions, history, etc.

You knew it was coming. Take anyone who cooks and blogs about food, give them a baby, and it's a given. The Baby Food Recipe Collection. I knew way before my son Jude was even born that I wanted to make my own baby food. I love that I can control everything that goes into his meals, and it is so much fun to introduce him to new things. So far, Jude loves almost everything! Avocado is not a big hit, strangely enough, but once he has it with hot sauce and cilantro, I bet that'll change. For now, I'm having too much of a good time creating healthy, delicious snacks and meals to not share our favorites with you!
