IT’S A RARE PARENT WHO RELISHES THE TASK OF PACKING SCHOOL LUNCH, but food writer Katie Morford makes the job a whole lot easier with her inspired new cookbook Best Lunch Box Ever.
Katie offers recipes and guidance for wholesome, homemade school lunches that you can pack in a jiffy without wanting to throw in the spatula. You’ll ﬁnd tips on everything from turning leftovers into lunches to navigating the supermarket snack aisle. Little hands will love all the noon time goodies such as Coconut Granola Bark, Juicebox Applesauce, and Easy Cheesy Thermos Beans. Katie is a mother of three, food writer, registered dietitian, and author of the blog Mom’s Kitchen Handbook. Among her claims to fame is that she has packed more than 4000 school lunches. She lives in San Francisco with her family.
Best Lunch Box Ever is packed with 75 delicious recipes of made-from-scratch lunch box mains, snacks and after-school pick-me-ups that are easy to throw together on busy mornings (or even the night before). Katie offers smart, sensible and useful information, including a rundown of the five essentials every lunch box needs for good nutrition, suggestions for simple switches in lunch box classics that add a healthy punch (without kids even noticing), invaluable advice on keeping school lunch at safe temperatures and fresh ideas for transforming dinner leftovers into tomorrow’s lunch — to name just a few of the book’s highlights.
Attention Readers! There is also an amazing grand prize sponsored by Best Lunch Box Ever that is perfect for cooking all of the amazing recipes from the book — one lucky person will win a DACOR Distinctive 30” Gas Range (ARV $3199) or a DACOR Distinctive 30″ Electric Range (ARV $3399)!
