Growing up a city girl (and a child of the 80’s) I had no idea what farm to table meant. My mom and I didn’t know about eating organic. Sadly, I thought that fruits and vegetables just magically appeared at the grocery stores. A friend of mine told me about “The Little Cook’s” class being offered at a local farm called Stone Barns Center, where they teach you what farm to table is all about. An important life lesson for Mabel, and I jumped at the opportunity.
When Evelyn was eating pureed food I loved using this food processor called The Baby Cook. It was quick, simple and we sure got our money’s worth out it. It steams and purees all in one with the push of a button. There was also a great cookbook offered along with some exciting puree options. It was especially helpful when I hit a wall trying to come up with different ideas.
“Mama, I want a snack!” It’s the sentence I hear about 5 times (or more) during the course of the day. It gets my wheels turning every time. If I didn’t care less what my daughter put inside her body this would be a no brainer. But I do care as I’m sure we all do to a certain degree.
