For when she's a bit older you could try pasta with broccoli, tomato and grated cheese. Both dss love this and never refuse it (probably jinxed it now).

I once tried carrot and pear as well, which turned out to be popular.

Also mixed courgettes, red peppers and carrots with baby rice (not for the first stage though).

i've got a great book, although not weaning yet so can't recommend a particular puree.

pea and sweetcorn is very quick and easy if you keep both frozen - just pour a few in a cm or so of water and they cook in about 2 mins then you can just blend them.

A good one if you've no time.

I second apricots with anything - always a hit.

Sweet potato with anything too. Early on I just mixed it with veg, then started adding cheese to it and then added cod or tuna to it. Ds3 is 11 months and still has it.

Yes, sweet potato is good. It always went down well with carrot or swede in it, and especially with apple.

She also liked butternut squash and red lentils, cooked together for half and hour and blitzed, once she'd been on purees for a month or two.

Peach, plim and pear always went down well too.

I find that avocado seems to go well with lots of fruits - ds loves it. For veg, it wasn't my son's favorite so I made up songs for his meals and it motivated him to eat his broccoli... Also a bit later, mixing mushed fruit with unswettened yogurt has been a favorite.
