Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I love this book. It's easy and fun to read with lots of ideas to make lunches more fun. My son is very picky but I have been able to use quite a bit of ideas from this book. I have used my waffle maker to make sandwiches more interesting. I don't buy many books any more because I am a big proponent of borrowing them from the library. I have checked this book out several times but have decided to buy it because I keep referring back to it and need to add it to my collection of books I own.
Purchased the book today and so far I love it. I can't wait to start trying these recipes. Love how informative she is. Very helpful! If you have kids I recommend this book. I gave it 4 stars only because i wish it had more pictures. Some of her recipes did not include a picture. But overall a great book with easy and healthy recipes.
