As you probably know (and if you don't, just look over the left sidebar), I'm a very proud member of the Facebook group Bento Bloggers & Friends and "The Cult of ELB." I am very thrilled to announce that several of my BBF friends (and fellow cultists) have contributed to a brand new cookbook by the amazing Kelly Lester -- Cooking with Trader Joe's Cookbook: Easy Lunch Boxes!
John and I both love our EasyLunchboxes and I was beyond thrilled when I was given the chance to take a look at a copy of the book in advance of its official release on the 15th of September. If you love gorgeous pictures of food, easy to follow recipes, and fun lunches then you have to check this book out! It's got fast lunches, cute lunches, allergy-friendly lunches, even grown-up work lunches (and more):
Some of the entries I'm most excited to try: Chicken Pepper Poppers, Reuben Pasta Salad, Waffle Pizzaaaah, Red Pepper Frittata, Spaghetti and Meatball Muffins ...... I think it might be easier to list the recipes I don't want to try (which would be the hummus. I don't do chickpeas.).
If you don't have a Trader Joe's near you don't let that hold you back from getting this book. I would have to travel for several hours in order to get to the nearest TJ's. Luckily, all of the ingredients are things I would be able to find in my local grocery stores. No excuses!!!
the book (and grab some EasyLunchboxes & the new awesome Mini Dippers while you're at it)!
