I always enjoyed packing my childrens lunches but always wanted to venture out of the normal sandwich, chips, granola bar, fruit cup, and drink. As creative as I am I would have never thought to put a lunch together in the way that Melissa from Another Lunch does. Head over to her site to get other great ideas for lunches.
I really do not like Tiramisu because of the coffee ingredient , but I love the mascarpone cheese that is used in the recipe. When I saw this recipe for White chocolate/Strawberry Tiramusi I could not wait to try out the recipe. This is one you will want to keep in your file.
