  1. I have never thought about roasting carrots for a baby. I really like that you can add breast milk when making this recipe. I will be suggesting your website to my friends and family members with babies.

    • This recipe is intended for babies but roasted carrots are delicious! Just skip the puree step if you do not have children. Roasted carrots make for a great side dish! 🙂

  2. I love how step by step this is. It doesn’t assume you know anything and really walks you through the process. Really well done!

    • Thanks, Matt! That is actually one of my main goals! It is great to know that the recipes are super easy to follow. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I love roasted vegetables. I’ve never thought of using them to make a puree’. What would you do with the puree’? Do you drink it or use it as a base for something else? Thanks

    • Hi, Michael! You could use it for carrot muffins, soups, spaghetti sauce or add it to smoothies for extra vitamins and minerals, just to name a few! Thanks for visiting!

  4. When my son was little I thought about making my own baby but I never did. If I would have came across these recipes back then I think that I may have actually tried it! I like that you are able to use formula in recipes. Good Job

    • Solid foods should not replace formula or breast milk in the first year. During the first year, the majority of their nutrients should come from formula or BM. Solid foods are just an addition to their diet, which is why I include that into the recipes. Thank you for visiting!!!
