I've got a few of the cookbooks by Annabel Karmel and they gave me lots of ideas. I got "First Meals," before my oldest started on solids. You can find her and some of her recipes on line if you look her up. Lots of ideas there, and some of her cookbooks even involve your child if old enough to want to start helping. I got my son the C is for Cooking cookbook too. Lots of Sesame Street characters and good food too. Sorry for no specific ideas, but it looks like the other moms have got you some options to get you started. Have fun trying things out.

My son loves grilled cheese or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Recently I bought Hormel Natural Choice Deli Turkey. It's made without preservatives and has no nitrates. He now likes turkey sandwiches with butter. I tried mustard and he didn't like that. I always give him milk and fruit (apples with peanut butter is his favorite). He also likes carrots. And I only buy whole wheat bread made without high fructose corn syrup. We always have yogurt for an afternoon snack.
