Peanut Butter Pudding from: Super Baby Food Book by Ruth Yaron #Weekly Menu Plan

Super Baby Food Book

The first time I had Hungarian Paprika Chicken my daughter was in the 3rd grade. I went to a school event where families shared a recipe from their ethnic heritage. A good friend of my daughter's parents are from Hungary and they made this dish.
