Pumpkin Applesauce :)

I never in a million years thought I would be one of those mommas who made their babies food and took the time to cook and steam the veggies before pureeing and chopping them up. It just never crossed my mind. That is until the day I realized my little girl had special dietary needs. She is allergic to milk protein (i.e all dairy is out) and to wheat/grains (i.e. no Gluten either).

So here we were shopping in the baby food isle for something other than plain carrots or green beans...BORING and there is NOTHING!!! Okay there are like two things...One was Turkey and Cranberry which she liked pretty well and the other was chicken and peas which she tolerated. At that moment I knew I had to do something. My daughter was not going to starve to death because of the little food selection the local grocery store carried for dairy and gluten intolerant infants. That's when I seen it.....The saving grace of the baby food dilemma!


And I became an addict!!! I have made Em's food ever since and she absolutely LOVES it!! We enjoy meal time again and we are up to three meals a day FINALLY! She is doing so much better and I cannot tell you the money this thing has saved me!!

With it being the holiday season I thought I would share with you one of her favorites right now. It is delicious (yes I tried it!!) and perfect for this time of year.

In this recipe I used canned pumpkin puree, but you could always make your own. If you buy the canned make sure you buy 100% pumpkin puree and check the ingredients to ensure that the only ingredient is pumpkin! :)

Pumpkin Applesauce


100% Pumpkin Puree
2 Apples
1 tbsp Cinnamon


Completely Core apples. Pour cinnamon in center 'cored' hole and place in a oven safe dish. Place 1/3 cup water in dish (just enough to cover the bottom of the dish). Place in the oven at 305 degrees for about 45 minutes. 

Cut apple into 4 pieces and place in baby bullet along with 1/2 can 100% pumpkin puree. Blend until desired consistency. 

And VOILA! Yes it is that easy! And by far her favorite recipe yet.
