A Love Every Day Lunch with Lil Snappers™ Apples

From reading books, to watching movies, to enjoying a meal together, there are so many ways that we can show our kids that we love them. One of the ways that I show my kids that I am thinking about them and love them is by making each child a fun food art lunch every week. Sometimes I like to show a little extra love, like in this lunch which I call my “Love Every Day” heart lunch using tasty Lil Snappers® apples. You don't need to wait until Valentine's Day to decorate with heart-shaped food, just watch the video below and follow my easy instructions to make this lunch for your family!



My family loves Lil Snappers® because they are kid sized fruits that are perfect for lunches. As you can see, I can even fit one in the side compartment! If you have kids who won't eat an entire regular-sized apple, you need to try this brand from Stemilt. Each bite is crisp and juicy and they are born for snacking. Keep scrolling to see how I made this Love Every Day lunch for my kids.

Christmas Reindeer Breakfast Recipe Featuring Three Bridges Egg Bites

Christmas is a magical time for decorations, gifts, and music but also for the food! You can never have too many Christmas recipes ready to go, so I wanted to make a fun food art recipe that will amaze your kids, but is also easy to create when you are short on time. This is why I used one of our favorite quick meals, Three Bridges Egg Bites, to make this Christmas Reindeer breakfast recipe.

Christmas Reindeer Breakfast Recipe Featuring Three Bridges Egg Bites

Three Bridges Egg Bites are heated up in 90 seconds in the microwave and come in flavors such as Country-Style Sausage, Uncured Bacon & Cheese, and my new favorite Spinach & Bell Pepper made with egg whites. These Egg Bites include 100% natural ingredients, and plenty of protein so they will fill up your whole family. Because these Egg Bites can be ready so quickly, I needed to make this recipe idea something that could be assembled in a matter of minutes. So with your favorite flavor of Three Bridges Egg Bites, along with ketchup, cheese, olives, and toast, this can be ready right when your family needs it!

Snoopy A Charlie Brown Christmas Peanuts School Lunch Food Art Recipe

What do you consider classic Christmas movies? For our family, one of the top Christmas movies of all-time has to be A Charlie Brown Christmas. From the wonderful holiday story, to Snoopy's Joe Cool attitude, to the carols, you can't help but smile by the end of it all. For these reasons, I had to make a Snoopy Christmas lunch for my kids this week. It's the last week before Christmas break, so I had to sneak in one more special lunch before the new year!

I was sent these appliances to use by Instant Pot, but was not paid for including them in this blog post.
3 Christmas Desserts to Make In Your Instant Pot, Instant Ace Plus Blender, and Instant Vortex Plus Air Fryer Oven

Christmas time can be full of rushing your kids from place to place, and trying to attend endless parties where you always need to bring something to eat. But if we can simplify things Christmas can also be one of the most joyous times of year! That is why we decided to come up with not one but THREE Instant Pot holiday dessert recipes that you can easily make for just your family, or a gathering of friends and coworkers. 


The first recipe is a Christmas Wreath Bundt Cake that we made in our new Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus. What? A cake in an Instant Pot? Is this madness? No this is efficiency! With 48 presets to make a recipe with the push of a button, the Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus is not only perfect for appetizers and dinner, but for Christmas cakes as well! This is one of the tastiest and easiest chocolate cakes you will ever make. In addition, we also created holiday themed desserts in the Instant Vortex Plus 10Q Air Fryer Oven and the Instant Ace Plus Blender.  

Dr. Seuss The Grinch Who Stole Christmas School Lunch Recipe Ideas

Monday, December 2, 2019


One of our most cherished Christmas tales is Dr. Seuss' The Grinch Who Stole Christmas! You and your family might be able to relate to this. It is not only fun and imaginative, it also is a classic with a great message. I have done a few other Grinch lunches, but this time around I wanted to try to come up some recipe ideas that were closer to the original story. The problem is that I can't really draw...other than stick figures. But I found out that the details of the Grinch's face are pretty easy to recreate. So if you can't draw like me, this is perfect for you!

What do you think, would your kids like to get this lunch? My kids loved the almonds but the celery was a bit more of a challenge. Keep reading to find out how I made it and what ideas you can use for your own kids' lunches!
