It feels SO nice to finally be able to cook again! This InstantPot Baby and Kid Friendly Chili recipe is a life saver! The past few months has been utter chaos going back to work after a full year off on Maternity Leave, baby going to Daycare, us getting sick on Daycare germs, selling our apartment and buying/moving to our new house! Let’s just say we ate a LOT of take-out food!
I am in utter disbelieve that 1. summer completely disappeared; 2. it is already November; and 3. WordPress has already rolled out Gutenberg. If you feel like you’ve been living in a well like I have been, Gutenberg is the new editor. Lending from the Gutenberg who introduced printing to Europe way back in the 1400s. So if you must – WordPress is like Word and Gutenberg is like Canva – editing experience rebuilt for media rich pages and posts.
Blogging less the past few months has given me a new perspective. This little break was exactly what I needed even though I didn’t think so at the time. I’ve really enjoyed the busyness of Motherhood. Although it is REALLY tiring and sometimes I just want to hide in a closet and cry! BUT I’ve also really enjoyed cooking meals and experimenting with recipes that puts a BIG smile (and perhaps a happy dance) from Baby!
I don’t think our household would have survived with our InstantPot! If you still haven’t jumped on the InstantPotCult bandwagon, honestly, I don’t know what you are waiting for! I made this baby friendly chili recipe in less than 20 minutes.
There’s a lot of pride out there when it comes to chili recipes. Every household has one that they swear by, passed down from their grandmothers and their grandmother’s grandmother.
Baby loves to eat carbs on carbs on carbs. She would be completely satisfied living off bread and pasta only. But I don’t want my toddler to eat only carbs and refined sugars that are full of empty calories. I want my child to partake in healthy eating filled with nutrients that include fruit, vegetables, protein and some grains. That is why this chili recipe is perfect! It is filled with lots good nutrients and a lot of different textures that is fun to eat and for their little hands to explore (read: splatters on the food and wall – super frustrating haha)!
I like to use black beans and navy beans from Grain. Their beans are grown in Altona, Manitoba in Canada. If am I pressed for time then I normally used organic canned beans too. It doesn’t have to be black beans or navy beans. This recipe is fairly flexible – you can use kidney beans, mixed beans and even add lentils or chickpeas if you please. I also switched up using extra lean ground beef for ground turkey instead. I like using turkey meat instead because it is lighter. However, it really depends on the lean meat to fatty meat ratio. Plus if you make this after Thanksgiving – you will have plenty of turkey meat leftover! And if you prefer it meatless, then simply omit adding in the meat.
Just remember to omit the jalapeno peppers and chili powder. Baby and toddlers have more sensitive taste buds than adults. Even just a little spice will be too much for your child!

Every time after the holidays or after over-indulging on fried foods I always turn to Chinese soup to neutralize it. Chinese soups are so good to nourish and tune up the imbalance in my body. Chinese soups has great edible medicinal properties. Plus, soups are super comforting. Green radish and carrots with pork bone soup is great to lower the “heat” ( 熱氣) in the body.
Green Radish and Carrot with Pork Bone Soup Recipe 青紅蘿蔔豬骨湯 is super easy to make. It is good for a cold and nourishes internal organs, de-stress and detox the body. Carrots are high in beta carotene and Vitamin A. The soup is ‘sweet’.
The soup color is light orange color. I like to use both pork bone and chicken to added depth of flavor and complexity. Typically I would have pork bone or ribs handy in the freezer.
Pork bones usually has fatty bone marrow to munch on as an extra dish for dinner. Dip it in some soy sauce mixed with some chili. They are excellent and delicious!
What is your favorite soup? Let me know in the comments below!
