My husband and I love trying new recipes! Neither of us were formally taught to cook so we're teaching ourselves. We've had a few "mistakes", but luckily my husband will eat ANYTHING. No, really, I mean anything. So nothing has been a complete loss. We have a son, born April '08 and he's eating solids like a champ! I love making his food for him. It's easy and cheap, besides who knows what they put in those little jars they sell at the store?! I can't wait to see what kind of things he likes once he gets some teeth!
