Yogurt Parfaits are by far the easiest bento lunch you can make. And Els loves it, which makes it even more easy. Here I used: Plain Greek Yogurt Pomegranates Granola Brown Rice Crisps Chia seeds Strawberries and Grapes (For you convenience, affiliate link:) Stainless steel […]
My daughter and I love anything sensory. Especially if it’s soft and fluffy and colorful. Like kittens. And cotton balls. And FLUFF. Haha. But seriously, we made this insanely easy homemade puffy paint using only 3 ingredients. Ingredients you probably have at home already. Just […]
To another sandwich-free, leftover bento lunch box! You all know how much I love to use leftovers for my daughter’s lunch. It’s the easiest way to put a well-balanced meal together quickly. This is good for kids but adults, too. I would eat this lunch, wouldn’t you?
We had some leftover grilled chicken breast from the night before, so I sliced it up, with some cucumbers, apples cut into hearts, pomegranates and mini ravioli with marinara sauce.

I cut the apples with a fruit and vegetable cutter. And the mini cheese ravioli I found at Trader Joe’s which I paired with some leftover marinara sauce.
All in a stainless steel Lunchbots container.
Happy lunch making!

Let’s get real. Everyone loves a good cheese board. But what’s worse than getting to the cheese plate too late when everything is gone? Getting there right after a swarm of hungry kids with their grubby little hands. Haha. But seriously, I love the idea […]
Leftovers are the best kind of lunches. As soon as we finish dinner, I make sure to put aside leftovers for the next days lunch for my daughter. Today on the bento box lunch menu: leftover broccoli quiche, grapes and strawberries, persimmons (my fave) and […]
I feel like everyone has their go-to banana bread recipe. For me, it’s the kind that reminds me of my childhood. Banana bread, has to taste just like how I remember it at my friends house after school. Or at my school bake sale where I’d eagerly hand over my 50 cents after careful choosing. I also like my banana bread pretty simple. And that’s kind of what I did with this. I took my go-to banana bread recipe and added in some pumpkin and cinnamon and got this. Simple, fall pumpkin banana bread.

The pumpkin taste is very subtle. But just enough to excite your taste buds. I used this organic pumpkin from Whole Foods.
I also always add walnuts because pumpkin banana bread is not pumpkin banana bread without walnuts. Unless you’re allergic. Then do chocolate chips instead.
I found the pumpkin made the bread super moist and delicious. I used a mix of whole wheat flour and white flour to make it healthier. And cut the sugar so it’s not too sweet. And now that the weather is finally cooling down, this bread was the perfect thing to make. And eat.
My husband likes to eat it warm with a little butter spread on top. My daughter likes it in her lunchbox as a little lunchtime treat. I like it with my cup of coffee in the morning, just as it is. So yummy.
How many times can I say pumpkin in this post, right?!
Making lunch should be fun right? Like this Halloween Bento Lunchbox. But more importantly, fun to eat! I think, even the pickiest eaters will like this one. The purple witch fingers are actually grapes. They’re called Moondrop grapes and they’re naturally long. Crazy right? I […]
When my mother-in-law went to the doctor’s office a while back, I remember her telling me her doctor asked her if she’s a toast and tea type of person. A toast and tea person? She asked. Yeah, you know, like you wake up and make […]
