I cooked some chicken nuggets and placed them into a silicon cup and did the same with the waffles. I noticed all the main food was very bland looking. So to add some color I added some raspberries and a cute chicken to the top of the nuggets and to the waffles I put a little shooting rainbow star. Next to the waffles I added some green beans to … More

I used regular flour tortillas for my own personal quick nighttime snack want pizza thing. It definatly kills the craving, it is like eating thin crust pizza and if you use yummy stuff on top you wont be dissapointed. My kiddo however is GF and I had some white corn tortillas (GF) and I thought what the heck it should work just as well as the flour ones I make. Well it did!
They were a quick fix to a pizza craving and lower in … More
I quickly baked up some Simply Smart chicken chunks (Perdue brand sells GF too!) I had them from the night before and my kiddo said to me “Mom, these nuggets are real chicken and YUMMY” so I guess for a quick meal I will be buying this brand again. I found them in the cold food section of the store near lunch meats, so they are not frozen. She liked that they were not minced chicken meat but real chicken pieces. I liked … More
I made the little chicks out of quail eggs from the Asian market. My kiddo LOVES them because she can just pop them in her mouth. I used a heart shaped sprinkle candy for the crown, some carrot for the beaks and colored the eyes using food color and a toothpick.
The chick eggs are sitting on some rice. Below them is a bit of … More
This time I decided to do a little test. I did not cute up her food too much. I did make a few things but the rest I am letting her imagination take over for this Halloween Scary Bento.
I wrote her a letter stating that I hope she enjoys Bones from a black cat (cut up apple fries) under some Ogre fingers (Carved cucumber-Spelled Ogre like oger so she could read it better) along with some Dragon tongues … More
With summertime here we have not made our daily bentos but I am trying to get one in here and there. With that said my kiddo has been also suffering tummy troubles and sometimes does not want allot of food or is specific on what she has a taste for. So she wanted an egg, I thought hey I will make this egg bento today.
My Alien bento was super easy and fast. Plus it is on a stick and who doesnt love food on a stick! Grammy also sent us a bento box that a stick can fit into … More
My kiddo has been loving the Halloween Bentos I have been making her for lunch. One thing I have been adding is a scary menu to tell what the freaky treats are. With this bento since it is not really freaky food I made a short story of what Brynn the witch was doing.
In this fun and festive bento I made some quick rice balls with again my favorite microwave sticky rice. Formed it inot the witch face and a ghost. Using nori to cover the witch’s hat and for face details. I used shredded cucumber skin for the … More
Bunny Birthday Bento is another of the weeks birthday themed bentos. It is not a totally birthday looking bento but the bunny sammi has a little birthday hat on, so I will say it is birthday.
My kiddo loves bunnies and I have done a few bunnies in her bentos so this one is going to be a fav for sure. I made three little sammis and used a cookie press to indent the bread (they are also sold as sandwich press on bento sites). My kiddo loves little cute sammis and the bunny is sure to please along with … More

I also added some broccoli and baby carrot with a star pick, a red bow to make it festive and her little bottle of GF soy sauce.
The other side I made Santa out of : Mashed potato face with left over rice for beard, his face is radish cheeks, nori eyes and mouth with … More

Next to nest is some polish sausage cut into flowers, all natural fruit roll up type dried fruit shaped into flowers (on top of more … More
