Ella's Kitchen First Foods Book Review

I absolutely love cooking, I'm happy to cook all day long, and if I'm in a bad mood I like to bake. Nothing better than making cupcakes to make you feel better right? Since I had Emily I have maintained cooking, and we rarely used jars of food or pouches, but there is only so many times you can make the same meal right? I needed some inspiration to cook Emily some meals that she hadn't tried before. I don't want her to be a fussy child, I know I have no control over that but I am hoping by making her try a variety of food it will reduce how fussy she is in the future. We were recently sent the Ella's kitchen 'First foods' recipe book. I have to say I am loving the variety of recipes that it contains. 

'Packed with 130 yummy recipes for weaning right up to the big table, there's everything you need to know to help your little one on their tiny taste bud adventure!'

I have never actually owned a recipe book before. I tend to just make it up as I go along, but I am absolutely loving it. There is such a varied mix of recipes in this books, from basic fruit and vegetable puree's to curry, pies and pasta dishes. I love the easy to follow recipes. Each recipe include the coking time estimate, the number of people the recipe is meant to serve, a ingredients list, the recipe instructions and a photograph. I have to say there are recipes that both me and Sam are looking forward to trying aswell. We have tried out a couple of recipes from this book including the softly spiced chicken and saltana curry, and the terrific tortilla parcels (pictured below). 

The tortilla parcels were super easy to make, and Emily loved the cheese and tomato filling. I'm really looking forward to trying a chicken and sweetcorn filling in these parcels. I know she will absolutely love them. 

Overall I absolutely love this book and would definitely recommend it to anyone who is feeling a little overwhelmed and lost when it comes to cooking meals for weaning. I'm am really looking forward to cooking many more dishes from this book, and trying out some of the finger food ideas. 

The first foods book from Ella's kitchen retails for £14.99. In my opinion I think that is a fair price, and I would pay that. This book will last us way into the toddler years, and I can't wait to carry on using it. Visit the Ella's Kitchen website (here) to find out more about there cook books.

*I wasn't paid for this post. I received the item for the review purposes. However all opinions are completely my own.*
