Baby Food in the Crockpot!

So you may have noticed there are some changes going on here. I felt like the blog needed a bit of a makeover and I've figured out how to fix my pictures quota problem so I'm working on that too. 

I totally had a brilliant idea the other day, why not make baby food in the crockpot?? Ben was out of veggies and I had sweet potatoes, but I had no desire to turn the oven on to bake them when it was already 85 degrees in the house. Crockpot!

First I lined it with tin foil
(sorry about the atrocious pictures, my camera went missing) 

Then I peeled and cut the sweet potatoes into smaller chunks. 

Then I put it on high for 3 hours and went about my merry way!

 When they were done, I popped them into the blender 

Added the liquid that was left behind in the crockpot, plus a little more. 

Then blend. It was that easy. I'm most definitely going to look into doing make more foods this way, it was soooo nice not to have to heat up the house! 


  1. what a great and easy idea! I'll definitely have to try this.

  2. Alex, this is brilliant! I'm definitely sharing this with my new-mommy friends. My kiddos are 11 and 7 so no baby food needed here, but this is a very cost effective way to make your own healthy baby food! Wanna do a guest post on my blog? I'd love it!

    contact me if you're interested.

  3. Great idea! I usually use my toaster oven, which is fine but not as big as a crockpot.
