But back when I was first introducing solids to Tricky what I would have really liked was a guide to go by... not from one of the health companies, I had heaps of those flyers thrust in my hand every time I was forced to visit the child health nurse. I mean a selection of tips and recipes from a fellow Mama who has done it all before me and figured out what works and what doesn't.
The divine Liss from Frills in the Hills has just released her own eBook 'First Foods I Fed My Frills'! So I finally can get some Mama food wisdom! But she hasn't just tried her recipes out on one
It comes with great tips on everything from highchairs and which spoons she found the best to use, and she even shares her secret of the single best piece of Tupperware to store the food in. Oh and recipes. It can't be a food book without recipes and boy, can this woman cook!
The recipes are, as usual, fantastic; I struggled knowing what foods to combine for Tricky and just shoved everything in and hoped for the best, so actually having a guide is great. Plus there is a recipe for homemade rusks! Commercial rusks are so expensive when you've got a teething baby gnawing through them at lightening speed.
If you'd like to get your own copy it's only $5! What a bargain. You can click on the picture below* and you'll get taken to the sales page on her blog.
I've been a silent lurker on Frills in the Hills for a while now, never leaving comments, because I was too busy cleaning the drool off my keyboard. Until it came down to the best ever pot roast that I made for Map Guy on our anniversary; it was so good I uploaded pictures of it to Twitter and Facebook.
Now I'm turning in to a complete foodie and it's really spurring me on to cook more meals from scratch!
So go grab yourself a $5 eBook and get cookin'!
