{he's getting so big... and barely wants to be in front of the camera anymore.
These are lucky snaps...And I'm not gonna lie: I'm sitting on top of him.}

For my kid who won't eat enough veggies, I made--

Broccoli Cheddar Nuggets
From the Wholesome Baby Foods Website:


1 16-oz Package frozen broccoli, cooked, drained, and chopped

1 cup Seasoned bread crumbs (you could try using baby cereal if you want, we know it works well with "baby meatballs")

1 ½ cups Shredded cheddar cheese (please use real cheese and not a "processed cheese food" product. Try tomato & basil cheddar!)

3 Large eggs or 5 egg yolks - Most pediatricians say it's ok to use whole egg in a baked good when baby is over 8-9 months old without allergies. We would recommend that you substitute 5 egg yolks for the whole eggs if serving this to those under 1 yr. Ask YOUR pediatrician!


Preheat oven to 375
1. Lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil and set aside.
2. Combine all remaining ingredients and mix well.

*Add seasonings if you like - garlic powder, pepper, extra basil & oregano for example. Add a fruit or veggie puree to substitute for the eggs if desired.

3. Shape mixture into nuggets or fun shapes such as squares or squigglies etc..and place on baking tray. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, turn nuggets over after 15 minutes. Serve warm. Be sure to crumble these if your baby needs!

Suitable for those who have had the ingredients and for those who can handle texture and mash foods with their gums. Great for Moms & Dad too!



{completely on his own, my sweet, non-tidy hubs decided it was time to clean out and organize his closet. I am STILL swooning, hours later.}


{Fresh from Joe's clean closet, let's not talk about MY shoe pile, and instead enjoy Noah playing with his reflection in the mirror.}

Here's to a good week for all of us... things getting done, moments of play with those we love, and good tunes playing in the background. That's been MY Monday. All is well.


  1. looks like a great day! a great post, as always.

  2. I can't believe how much bigger he looks now that we can see his teeth. He IS growing up! Kudos to Joe for having the motivation to cleaning out the closet...on his own! YAY! Love your Monday!

  3. I always learn such priceless things from you! I am going to go home and sit on Rori tonight so I can get some pictures! Love the brocoli cheddar nuggets too! Great idea!

  4. OMG, he is your spitting image in #2. Seriously. AND, I have that same outfit for Max in 18-24 months -- I can't WAIT until he can wear it.

    So cute...and I ♥ the new header too!

  5. All RIGHT! Now Noah photo-sessions and Noah cuddle-sessions are COMBINED!

    Those nuggets sound entirely fabulous. And I just ate.

    Good work, Joe!

    Now that is a BIG deal! I think I would pass out if my hubs decided to clean out his closet on his own accord! And I can't believe what a little man Noah is becoming! Happy Monday!

  7. ohhhhhh he is soooo cute!!!

  8. Okay, so you DO realize, of course, that down the road, when Noah encounters a small pile of dog vomit, he may think it's a broccoli cheddar nugget. I thought the zucchini/carrot/whatever muffins sounded really really delish, but the nuggets, to me, sound iffy. Maybe it's just my complete love/hate relationship with broccoli- I hate it, but my wife loves to make me eat it anyway.

    Oh well- love the pics of Noah. And congrats to Joe for doing one of the few things guaranteed to make a wife smile- cleaning up.

  9. I MUST try those nuggets.....for Emma of course...she won't eat anything!

  10. Recipe looks yummy, and I want to get me one of those hubbies! I never thought about actually sitting on my child for a picture. Makes me pause for thought.

    Thank you for posting the Broccoli Cheddar Nuggets. It seems easy to make, not too many ingredients and an easy way to get veggies in a toddler. I'm trying it out next week!
