While I love her facebook page was kinda let down by her book, By Tuende Clark

I have purchased both books of the author. The first one was the kindle addition and this one was the hard cover. I wasn't too impressed with the first one because I am a person that LOVES a lot of pictures with recipes.. the more the better. I was hoping (knowing that she posts so many pictures on facebook about the lunchboxes) that this book would contain lots of pictures. But I was greatly disappointed. I will still try out the recipes and the sushi bread roll is a big HIT with my daughter. But still wished there were more pictures. If you are like me I would recommend 'Beating the lunch box blues' by J.M. Hirsch! I am absolutely in love with that one! tons of pictures and creative ideas!

The Pros:It's a gorgeous book. Lots of photos, lovely to look at.There are many helpful tips on packing lunches.The recipes are all fairly easy and are well written.The food is tasty!The Cons:A lot of the sandwich ideas are for grilled sandwiches, which honestly don't pack well in my opinion. Melted cheese resolidifies and crispy exteriors get soggy. Your kids may not care about that, though. Mine, unfortunately for me, do.The advice can seem a bit overwhelming; making all that stuff for lunches every day is a LOT of work. And yes, making extra and freezing it is a GREAT idea. IF you have a much bigger freezer than I do.Overall, it's a great book, and I'd recommend it to those who are looking for new ideas, or those who are just starting to pack lunches for (or better yet WITH their kids.) Those who have been doing it for a while might not get quite as much out of it, but it does contain some solid advice and some great...
