Remember a while back I wrote about making homemade baby food? *You can jog your memory here* I showed off my beautiful Beaba BabyCook and told you it was an unnecessary item that I just HAD to have. I’m totally and completely retracting everything I said. You DO need a BabyCook!
I never knew how much I’d fall in love with the little green machine. Or how it would change my life.
Of course, I use the BabyCook for making LBG’s solids, but I also use it to reheat them. I just put the ice cubes in a small jar, fill the water to the “1” line and place the jar in the steamer basket. In a few minutes his lunch is nice and warm! If it’s a little on the thick side, I use some of the steam water to thin it just like I would when making it from the raw veggies.
Now for the fun part. I even use it to cook for The Father and myself. We recently realized we don’t eat as many veggies as we should so we’ve decided to have a veggie with every meal. Instead of boiling water on the stove then steaming the green beans or carrots, I just pop them into the Babycook and within a few minutes I have enough for the two of us. Same goes for my lunch. I’ve made myself countless lunches of steamed broccoli, carrots, potatoes, etc.
One night TF was staying late for work so I steamed some broccoli and potatoes for myself then made some yummy applesauce with cinnamon for dessert! How cool is that?!
We’ve used the food processor portion for chopping garlic and onions, too. Over the weekend we made our own hummus!
See, I told you that you need one! If you aren’t looking for spend $150, never fear, my dears. Scandinavian Child has refurbished BabyCooks here. They are in “like new” condition but might have some slight imperfections, aesthetically speaking. They are 35% off MSRP! How cool is that?!
I firmly believe in telling a company if you love or hate their products. When I emailed Scandinavian Child to tell them how much I love my Beaba BabyCook, they surprised me with a cookbook! Not only that, one lucky reader gets a copy of the Beaba BabyCook Book, too!!!
Just a little about the book. It was written by a French chef and has recipes for babies of all ages. Each recipe has a shopping list, which is helpful, and different variations are provided so kids of all ages can enjoy! LBG tried the Winter Squash Veloute for dinner they other night and loved it! I’ve made the Cinnamon Cookies and Chocolate Cookies for TF and myself. We just substituted regular cow’s milk for the formula. They were fantastic!
