Welcome to the Adventures of MJ and Hungryman!
Yes. we love superheroes. I, MJ, like
And since 2017, we’ve welcomed our gentle, sensitive son and a firecracker daughter into our lives, and I enjoy feeding their hearty appetites (for the most part).
I have been blogging since 2012 to share my passion for cooking and nutrition. My style of cooking has evolved a lot over the years, especially after becoming a mom.
Making EASY and FAST recipes with simple ingredients that are easily accessible is how I roll these days. It’s the only way I can maintain my sanity. I’m here to inspire and teach fellow moms and dads that cooking wholesome, delicious food that you AND your baby/toddler will enjoy doesn’t have to be complicated.
I’ve crowned myself the queen of one pot cooking (because extra dishes are my worst enemy), and master developer of veggie-loaded snacks and meals that even the pickiest eater will be tempted to give a lick.
I have a bachelor's degree in Psychology from Emory University and a Masters in Nutrition from Texas State University.
While I may have extensive knowledge and training in the area of nutrition, I’m also a very tired, exceedingly blessed mama who’s trying to figure out this whole motherhood thing.
One thing is certain - All parents need a tribe, and I hope this space will be a welcoming place for all of us to band together to raise up a generation of joyous, mindful eaters!
We, as a family, decided to skip the traditional purees
Along with the recipes I share on this blog, I’ve also written several cookbooks. The recipes in these books will always hold a special place in my heart because they’re a collection of my son’s FAVORITE snacks and meals from when he was a baby.
With over 100 thousand copies sold, it brings me such joy to know that they’re being savored by so many families around the globe!
I'm so glad you are here, and I truly truly hope you’ll enjoy all the recipes and tips that I share on what and how to feed your child!
