I’m Dana. Mom of two (@hellolittlefoodies_ on Instagram). I always find cooking therapeutic and I just love cooking for my family. I grew up with my Grandma who loves to cook all the time so I think I adapted that from her and the kitchen has become my play area.
I migrated here to the US 4 years ago and when I had my second daughter, cooking and baking helped me to a lot with my emotional ups and downs. I’m a SAHM and I’ve never really thought of my Instagram account growing or me being part of a bigger community at first, (as it started as just a hobby and it still Is) when I started posting, documenting, and sharing my second daughter’s solids journey online. But now, I’m grateful that it did, and now I share baby, toddler, kid-friendly meals and easy family-friendly recipes for inspo. I’m also so grateful to find and become a part of a community with parents who can relate to each other and creators who love to inspire other creators when it comes to cooking and feeding their kids.
I had my bachelor’s in mass communication but I’ve always dreamt of being a chef or having my own restaurant or café. Although I’m still far from achieving that, I want to be able to do that in this lifetime. Cooking has always been my passion, and I think being a small-time food content creator has set me up to start achieving that goal. While I still have a lot of learning to do, I am grateful that I have this passion and skill to become who I want to be in the future, in God’s perfect time.
I find bento boxes so fun to pack lunches with or any meal. I’ve always been fascinated by how a bento meal is made even before I had kids and now that I’m a mom, and I love to cook and pack lunches, a bento box has become my best friend. It’s just so fun to plan and arrange food in it.
I pack lunches for my girls; for school, on the go, or even when we’re just at home. My daughters’ face lights up when they see, well-arranged colorful meals serve in bento boxes and meals instantly becomes a hit!
Everything. I love everything about Takenaka bento boxes and choosing the style and color is the hardest part and that’s how you know how well thought of a product Takenaka bento boxes are.
I love love the solid colors and the minimalistic look, but I chose the Takenaka x Poketo design. I find it so cool and I just know my girls would love them too.
Important: press and drain tofu before using to get rid of the excess liquid.
Oyster sauce is optional, you can also use char siu sauce, coco aminos, light soy sauce instead. Or just don’t add any for younger babies. (6m+)
