My Baby Food Maker

If you are planning to make your own baby food, or in the midst of doing so, I found a great tool to make this process easier. It also creates VERY happy babies.

It is called the Babycook by Beaba, and I am in love with it. There are not many steps in making baby food, nor does it take time away from playing with your little one(s).

  • Dice vegetables/fruit
  • Add correct amount of water to the mixing area, according to the booklet (included)
  • Add the diced food to the steaming basket, top with mixing lid, and seal shut
  • Add water to the reservoir
  • Turn the knob to the “steam” icon.
  • Once steaming is complete, remove water (but save some to add when pureeing the food), and take food out of the steaming basket
  • Add steamed food direct to the mixing area, add some of the steamed water back into the mixing area. Adding water will be up to your discretion and how thick you want your food.
  • Puree

Then volia! Your baby’s meal is complete! In three hours, I completed four different vegetables, and several jars of food. Granted, I didn’t stay in the kitchen the entire time. I would get the food started, let it steam, then go spend time with my family until I went in the kitchen to check on things.

I love that your time isn’t spent in the kitchen making food, and Baby P gets fresh veggies and fruit from our local farmers market.

I highly recommend adding this sweet cooking machine to your next baby registry, buying it for your friends, or getting one for those sweet babies of your own.

I have the older edition, the Babycook Original, but you can see all the editions, and links to purchase them, here:

FYI- this is not a paid ad. This was recommended to me by my cousin who made baby food, with ease, for all three of her children. She is the original Beaba user.

Happy {baby food} eating!

LUSHious Skin

I am a lover of LUSH bath bombs, but I wanted to explore more of their products. I recently tested some LUSH skin products with my cousin, and I wanted to share my experience with you all.

Gentlemen: this is a GREAT Mother’s Day gift idea! What wouldn’t want an in-home spa any time she wants?

We tried Ocean Salt face and body scrub, Mask of Magnaminty face and body mask, Cup O’ Coffee face and body mask, and Vanishing Cream facial moisturizer.

LUSH instructions for masks: Smooth mask all over your skin. Leave on for 15 minutes then rinse off with warm water, massaging as you go.

Below you will find links for the products through LUSH’s website, but I also provided links to purchase these products through Amazon as another option.

My cousin really needed something to clear up blemishes, and I wanted something to get rid of my new “tired mom” look. So we tested these products as a team since we had different goals for our skin.

My favorite, by far, was the Cup O’ Coffee mask.

It smells like iced coffee and feels so refreshing once applied on my face. But the best part is washing it off. My skin felt softer than ever and so clean. I am not sure if I looked less tired, but I definitely felt more awake after my mask treatment. I highly recommend using this mask when you want to feel refreshed and recharged.

With my cousin, she experimented with the Mask of Magnaminty mask and Vanishing Cream moisturizer combo.

She felt the mask helped minimize her pores and reduced blemishes. It is a green cream and has a fresh minty scent. Once she washed her face, she applied the vanishing cream to ensure those blemishes don’t come back for a while. She was very pleased with the experience and liked the results.

For the Ocean Salt scrub, it is one of their most popular products. Unfortunately, I am not a big fan. The infused vodka is definitely noticeable. The vodka scent really drew me away from using it. However, my cousin enjoyed using it as a body scrub. She loved the fresh feeling it left her with after her shower.

I would love to hear from you on your favorite scrubs or masks. I’m always willing to try something new!
