Yummy Kawaii Bento Review!

Today I am reviewing Yummy Kawaii Bento by Li Ming Lee. Now I am a huge lover of cookbooks! I am also a huge fan of bento! When you combine the two you can pretty much bet that I am going to love it! Yummy Kawaii Bento does just that. There are so many awesome lunches. There are also several recipes in the book. I am more of the American style bento maker. This cookbook gives me the information and instructions I need to go outside of that box. So I can create something different inside the box. Each page has detailed instructions to make things easier for you to make each lunch creation.

Today I made two lunches from the book. They aren't exactly the same as the book shows, but in my opinion that's the beauty of bento. You can pretty much take any idea and run with it. You can make it your own and tailor it to your families likes.

My first is called. Bear Sandwich Rolls.

Look at how cute it is!

Here is my version. There are two ham rolled sandwiches, cucumbers, a clementine, peppers, and cashews.

My second lunch is called. Chicks In Bread Cup Nests! I made the chicks and used regular eggs instead of quail eggs.

Here is my version!

This lunch has two hard boiled eggs, a clementine, cashews, peppers, cucumbers and Annie's snack   mix.              

I had a lot of fun making bento's from Yummy Kawaii Bento. They were pretty easy and turned out super cute. I recommend Yummy Kawaii Bento! It's an awesome book full of the cutest bento lunches ever! You can get your copy by clicking the link below.
