Back to School Ideas

I’ve got 9 Back to School breakfast, lunch and snack ideas – head over to my guest post on Bon Appetit’s site!

Oh and pssst….I’m also featured on Saveur.com for Marcella Hazan’s Simple Tomato Sauce recipe.

    Mmmmmmmmmmm that sandwich looks good!!!


  2. Those look like they would work as nice adult snacks or appetizers. I’m definitely tempted :) Have any good baby snack ideas?? I have a one year old boy with a huge appetite!

  3. No kids in school anymore, but I still go every day! I’ll check these out- I’m always needing ideas for my own snacks and lunches! (Why should kids have all the fun?)

  4. I pack their lunches every morning made from scratch. It is hard to find a good variety of foods they like to take. Thanks for some inspiration, Jade.

    Great ideas for children lunch meals. Back to school already!

  6. You must have been reading my mind….I am racking my brain to think of some back to school lunch ideas!

    These are great ideas. As I was talking with my son Amari about school I received the email about this post. He was so excited when he saw the little sandwiches and said to me “Great now I know what YOU will be packing in my lunch next!” Oh I also got a cute smile and wink! Thanks again!

    Oh, I love the puff pastry idea! Sounds like the perfect, easy comfort food!

    I saw the mention on my Saveur newsletter. Way to go Jaden!!

    Of course, the guest post on Bon Apettit isn’t too shabby either. :-)

  10. Okay, this picture is the cutest! Cannot wait to see the rest, so headed over to the guest post!

    Love the mini-sandwiches & the popcorn bag trick. I’m going to try it!

    With the “zero tolerance” policies they have up here, those plastic swords would get you expelled! Going to check out the post.

    I can’t wait to try cooking couscous with milk. I loved your Marcella Hazen story on Saveur.com. What a fabulous experience to cook and share lunch with them.

    I like the idea of “dressing up” the mini-sandwiches this way. Oh how I miss those days when my kids are still little…

    How cute! I am heading over to BA right now! :-)

    I hope you’re not sending those little swords to school – might be considered a weapon. They are very serious about zero tolerance these days… :(

    Always looking for good snack ideas, regardless of how old you are. Great post, thanks for the inspiration!
