Being culinary challenged, I often find myself short of ideas on what to cook for my family. No, I should say that I’m short of ideas to cook fast, simple, fuss -free and toddler friendly meals for the family.
For me, I used to struggle a lot with weekday dinners especially after Sophie started on solid food. And it certainly didn’t help that the infant care she attended had a no dinner policy even though the school was right smack in the CBD area where parents typically don’t get to knock off by 6pm.
So the question is how does one manage to whip up a healthy, nutritious dinner for the family after a day’s work and make sure that the starving family doesn’t end up eating at 9pm?
But thanks to these online resources, I’ve been serving up rather yummy dinner for the hubby and baby.

Annabel Karmel is a famous UK’s author on baby and children’s food and nutrition. Her books and website has a wide library of recipes that caters from 6 months to the whole family. Her recipes have gotten the thumbs up from both my family!
Lots of information on how you can prepare your little one for solids- how to introduce solid food, what food to introduce them and nutritional information. If you’re looking for recipes for babies from 4 months to 12 months, this is the place to go to.
A fellow Singaporean whose recipes are easy to follow and whose photos always leaves me salivating in front of my laptop. The fact that she calls herself a noob cook makes it so non intimidating to try any of her recipes. Wiffy also contributes her receipes at InSing.com

And my last recommendation is one of our local production on Channel 8. After all nothing beats watching the guest stars cooking while getting advise from the master chefs and having the dishes being critiqued to know what’s going into the pot and what’s not.
That said, I must also give due credit to my hubby and daughter who have been supportive of my cooking and doesn’t have any major complains (yet!). In face, the hubby even commented that my cooking has improved with all my experimenting in the kitchen. Don’t we just love an appreciative hubby like that.
Do you have websites that you go to for recipe ideas? Do share them with me too.
