Cooking from the Mouth of Babes: Part I

In need of some good recipes? You've come to the perfect place. A few years ago we had the wonderful opportunity to interview three-year-olds for a cookbook. We're smart, right? After reading some of these recipes you'll reaffirm your understanding that children are simply and wonderfully brilliant. Which will you make tonight?

  1. No sure whats so funny.  I think a few of those sound real good.  Looking forward to round two.  I think I will ask MOM to make the fried chicken tonight.  I have a house guest and I think she will like it a lot.
