  1. this site rivals those other bento sites. i have fallen in love with the graphics and layout, not to mention the recipes. you have been favorited for my browser. love the helpful hints for every part of prep work. keep up on the writing and blogging. XD

  2. I love this site! I’ve always wanted to try making my own bento but I thought it would be too hard. Now I think I’ll give it a shot! This site is easy to follow and has tons of great ideas! ^.^

  3. Hi Biggie,
    Are you no longer writing this blog? It seems that bento is just continuing to grow in popularity, but luckily you still have a lot of great information on it. Sadly, many of the things in your amazon store are out of stock, and when I tried to buy the things I picked out there with other things from Amazon, I don’t think you will get credit.

    Hope you come back to blogging here!

  4. In 2006, my then middle school aged daughter decided she wanted to go vegetarian. The school lunch options for vegetarians included a sloppy, inadequate salad bar and/or typical cafeteria food… French bread pizza, mac and cheese, etc. I started packing lunch every day and was fortunate enough to stumble onto this blog right around the same time. I immediately bought several bento boxes, an onigiri mold, and cute accessories.

    Combined with our wonderful local farmers’ market, my daughter’s lunches were the envy of her classmates throughout middle school and then high school. They would offer to trade her sweets for bits of purple cauliflower or onigiri. Even after she was well old enough to pack her lunches, I continued… because it was one area where I could still feel like a needed mom instead of a source of exasperation and embarrassment. ;)

    She is a sophomore in college now, and no longer a vegetarian. But she still eats more healthfully than most of her peers at college, and she plans on making bento for her own kids. Sorry to see this blog now archived, but thank you so much!

  5. Hi, I’ve been looking over all your recipes and tutorials and they are just amazing. I know its slightly out of the bento box motif but I was wondering if you could make a tutorial on making honey lemon slices. I’m a huge fan and I sometimes try to recreate the things I see you post. Please keep up the great work.

  6. Hi Biggie,

    My name is Sean Garcia and I’m working on an annual not for profit publication called, “Arts & Sciences Magazine.” The magazine is produced by Washington University in St. Louis, and we’d like to use one of your lunchbox images from Flickr in our publication. Here is a link to our magazine:

    Please let me know if we can use the image, provide a description of where the image comes from, and how you would like to be sited. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards,

    P.S. I sent an email to your gmail account attaching the image.

  7. Biggie, are you really back? I am sure I speak for dozens of other long-time loyal fans who have missed you over the years and have hoped you are well. You are such an inspiration and I can’t wait to see your new posts. Thank you for sharing all of your wealth of knowledge. I started reading your blog back when it was just my husband and I and I was trying to perk up our boring bento of direct leftovers or sandwiches. Now that we have two kids I refer to your posts even more, and my one of my five year old’s favorite hobbies is to have a bento picnic outside.

    I definitely think you have a direct role in some of the drop in childhood obesity rates in the United States! You’ve shown us all that eating healthy and eating less processed foods is simple AND enjoyable.

    Thank you so much Biggie, and welcome back!

  8. Hi Just411,

    Thank you so much for your kind comment! Yes, I’m back. It’s been a bumpy road but it’s time to come out of hiding and rejoin the humans. The blog redesign is finally close to how I’d like it — your comment is spurring me to get off my duff and make that official “I’m back” post. Can I do it by tomorrow???

  9. Awesome site, definitely made my days and spiced up my office life. Down with those anonymous, blank lunch bags I had made for all my life…your lunch bags are creative, inspiring and are a Natural Bore Killer at work.
    Great job!
