Our newest studiomate, Kelly Carambula, started her first day off with a bang: She brought in these homemade Rhubarb and Ginger Crumb Bars. Little did she know that I have a slight obsession with Rhubarb (along with Brussel Sprouts)!
LaLa Lunchbox is a brandnew iphone app that lets your kids plan their own lunches and teaches them to make smarter food choices!
Kids get to personalize and design their lunchboxes with fun monsters and colors, and then plan their lunches for a whole week at a time. They simply swipe their choices into their lunchbox from a large selection of fruits, vegetables, proteins, and snacks. Along the way, they learn that a balanced lunch includes items from each category. Parents can easily personalize and edit the items available to their kids.
G and I have been trying to teach our 6 year old, Ella, about the importance of a balanced diet. I am pretty sure she’ll enjoy playing with this app and feeling in control over what goes in her lunchbox. I’ll give LaLa Lunchbox a try, hoping it will not overcomplicate things!
Funny Food: 365 Healthy, Silly, Creative Breakfasts will turn carrots into airplanes; boiled eggs into jugglers, and pears into guitar players. At this point, I am willing to try anything, to get my 2 year old something else than just plain beige foods. Here’s a video of some of the pages in the book.

Thank you Erik Spiekermann, for creating this US Liquid Conversion Chart from US fluid ounces to milliliters.
My daughter is completely obsessed with Yummyfun Kooking, a seriously adorable, quirky cooking show made for kids. (I love watching the show myself.) Ella loves the show so much, she asked me to sign her up for actual cooking classes. And I admit, that makes me happy.
So, here’s a brand new episode that Claire Crespo, the chef in the show and mastermind behind it all, *just* launched:
And here’s the Series Trailer:
Graphic designer/typenerd parents rejoice and turn your next cookie baking event into a letterpress lesson with these Letterpress Cookie Cutter/Stamps.

If dessert time at your house sounds like this, “I want apple pie”. “No’ let’s have pecan pie!” … then you’ll need the Split Decision Pie Pan. Why bake one, when you can do two at the same time. The ingenious Split Decision Pie Pan includes two inserts for creating either a traditional full size pie, or two halves.
The Hermetus Bottle Opener is not your usual bottle opener. The resealing function is what sets this gadget apart.
I couldn’t help but chuckle at the sight of these Kitchen Utensils over at Fab.com designed by Raia Studio. From left to right: Sud Green Dish Brush, Gaby Green Cheese Grater and Marshall Green Potato Masher. For the next three days you can get them over at Fab.
I admit though, that I am afraid my kids would want to play with them, not ideal, especially in the case of the grater.
