I'm not to the solid food stage yet, but I am preparing to make the baby food. My mom made my youngest siblings baby food and she got me:

The Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet - Karin Knight, R.N., Tina Ruggiero, M.S., R.D., L.D.

and Hamilton Beach brand food processor.

Just go to Barnes and Noble and pick out a few books. And go to a bakeware shop. We have a Kitchen Collection in our outlet mall. Its awesome.

 I didn't use any cookbooks, I just made stuff up myself! I used our Magic Bullet to puree the foods. Any blender at all will do the work just as well as a baby food processor. So unless you already have something specifically for baby food, I wouldn't waste my money. If you are making large quantities, try using a blender rather than a Magic Bullet-like appliance because they're bigger!

One thing I do want to say, is that when you steam the veggies (or whatever you're steaming) to puree, make sure you use the water you steamed them in when you blend. The vitamins and minerals seep out of the food and into the water the warmer it gets. Without that water, the food is just mush, not nutritious.
