another great food book recommendation. feeding the whole family: recipes for babies, young children, and their parents. ignore the “babies and children” part if you don’t have them. this is just a good cookbook for anyone. the first 60 or so pages talks about whole foods, changing your diet, and general good foodie facts. what makes this kid/baby friendly is that each recipe has a notation about how to serve your baby or toddler from the dish you’ve made. very helpful. our first recipe: thai coconut chicken soup. very good, friends. but i did find it kind of amusing that as we sat down to eat, this was one of the few nights i served elisha something totally different from our dinner. oh well. here’s for trying.
