Simple Soup

Simple Soup Receipe
I have been cooking Bee's Basic Baby Porridge for months now! I actually enjoy eating it. It feels healthy and light. Bee says this is very versatile and just learning a few techniques can open new doors. So this time instead of porridge I used the same general idea to make soup.

Simple Soup Receipe


4 cups chicken broth
1 medium size white potato
1 medium size sweet potato
1 carrot 
21 salute/salt to taste (optional)


Wash and peel potatoes and carrot.
Cut into smaller chunks.
Add all ingredients to pot.
Set the heat on high and bring to a boil. Then cover low heat for 30 minutes. 
Add 3 dashes of 21 salute or a bit of salt.

Wah lah soup! It's perfect for a babies and adults alike. My husband was actually the one to gobble this pot up. Now I feel like a budding cook again! He ate it w/ saltine crackers.;)

Recipe: Instant oatmeal cookies
3 packages of instant oatmeal (I used 2 packages of apple cinnamon and 1 banana walnut)
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees celsius. Mix dry ingredients. Add milk and oil. Mix. Scoop and form small rounds. Make 9-12 cookies. Place on baking sheet. Put in oven for 15 minutes.

Tip: Perfect for breastfeeding moms. Supposedly oatmeal helps increase milk supply. Plus eating cookies is faster than eating a bowl of oats. ;)

Recipe: Peanut Butter Sesame Noodles

Recipe: Peanut Butter Sesame Noodles

Adapted from (


1 package of wheat spaghetti pasta
1 cucumber

1/4 cup of soy sauce
1/4 cup of warm water
2 tbsp of rice vinegar
2 teaspoons of honey
1 tbsp of red hot pepper flakes
1/2 cup of chunky peanut butter
1 1/2 tbsp of sesame oil

Place all dressing ingredients into a food processor and pulse until it's smooth. Cook spaghetti according to directions. Rinse under cold water. Cut up cucumber into thin slices.

Place peanut butter sesame dressing on the noodles and add cucumbers. According to Epicurious don't let the noodles sit in the sauce for long. Just toss it together before serving.

I've been meaning to make this dish forever. Yums. It usually cost about 5-6 dollars at the noodle house I've been too.

Too bad my husband doesn't like cold noodles or cucumbers. But I made it for me and the little baby in my tummy! ;) I'm currently on maternity leave. :D 9 days till her due date.
