So when Connor first started eating solid food, I did a lot of experimenting with my food processor. This was one of his favorites - and ours as it turns out. Not too bad on a slice of black bread or with tomatoes and cheese for a sandwich. Sort of a condiment really, although it started out as baby food.... We had it with artisan bread and grilled shrimp for dinner last night. Yum.
2015 Note: The little one has now turned into a shamefully picky eater. I can no longer call this recipe "Peas for Connor" since he won't eat anything resembling the color green (except for jelly beans). We do, however, keep this picture on our fridge to remind him of the fact that he did, at one point, like peas. —Niknud

Full-time working wife and mother of two small boys whose obsessive need to cook delicious food is threatening to take over what little free time I have. I grew up in a family of serious cookers but didn't learn to cook myself until I got married and got out of the military and discovered the joys of micro-graters, ethiopian food, immersion blenders and watching my husband roll around on the floor after four servings of pulled pork tamales (with real lard!) complaining that he's so full he can't feel his legs. Trying to graduate from novice cooker to ranked amateur. The days of 'the biscuit incident of aught five' as my husband refers to it are long past but I still haven't tried my hand at paella so I'm a work in progress!
