There are recipes on there as well as tips from people. You can buy a Baby Led Weaning Cookbook which is very helpful, I still use these recipes for our family (Toddler is now 2).
No need to boil/microwave fruit or mash anything for them. The idea of BLW is that they learn to chew the food. Their gag reflex is further forward and they should be able to spit the food out if if goes too far in the mouth. Roast veggies but just don't overcook them. We steamed our veggies and our boy started with carrot, zucchini and beans. Just cut them into sticks (big enough for them to hold and bite/suck) initially then change the cut to suit their development. They will eventually learn to chew and eat the food when they realise food is satisfying their hunger.
Tip: put an easy to clean mat under the chair, it will be very messy for a little while as food is just for play for a while. You can give them any foods except runny eggs and honey until they're about one. I just introduced different foods to get my toddlers stomach used to new food other then milk and to test for allergies.
It is a great way to help with your child's dexterity, speech development, hand/eye coordination and generally a pretty good eating routine. We went overseas when my boy was about 8 months old and it made it very easy for him just to share our meal rather than packing lots of pre-purchased baby food.
There's nothing wrong with starting earlier than 6 months - you just need to make sure she is able to sit unaided and another readiness sign is that she's actually trying to take food or has an interest in eating and can take it to her mouth.
Good luck and have fun!
