If you ever want a book on hand to give you some easy ideas on how to make fun bento lunches for your kids, parties, or play dates, you should look at Everyday Bento. This book is a collection of recipes that will shock you at how simple and fun it is to make these types of bento meals.
One of the things that impressed me the most about this book is how it is applicable to both beginners and experts. I have been creating fun bento lunches regularly for about a year and a half, so I am pretty experienced at it. When I read through this book I learned a bunch of fun tips that would have my life so much easier, had I owned this when I started. The other part that stands out are the simple instructions and helpful pictures. The author, Wendy Thorpe Copley, goes out of her way to make sure you read and see every necessary step in the meal. I felt like I was right there with her making the lunches!
Besides the recipes, Copley also devotes time to techniques, tools, and templates. My favorite ideas had to be the Rock n' Roll bento and the Dinosaur Bento. You will look like a genius if you make these for your kids! I want to make them this weekend actually.
My recommendation is that you pick this up right now. You can buy it on Amazon HERE for $11.94. Besides a reusable bento box this should be one of the first things that you buy, along with my ebook of course! You also should check out Copley's blog, Wendolonia, for even more great ideas for parents.
