11 Kid-Friendly Recipes

11 Kid-Friendly Recipes

Got any wishes for Christmas this year?
Is it a full-on, legitimate, letter-to-Santa list?  Or is there just ONE thing you really want and everthing else may as well be pencil-shavings in comparison?
Things I've wished for, for Christmases past include:  Polly Pockets, American Girls Dolls, an encyclopedia (I was eight and this request prompted my Dad to introduce me to the "Internet" and Brittanica.com), a pony, and an Easy Bake Oven (Got it! Have since graduated to the big kids' oven.)

So far I haven't done many, (this is one of just a couple) but I already know I need more in my life.  In search of recipes from other great bloggers, I'm always finding things to whip up that I never dreamed of.  I mean, the other day, I was on Pinterest - whaaat, Pinterest? I'm never on Pinterest... for like 10 hours a day... And I saw a cake made to look like a turkey with stuffing coming out of it.  For serious.  It was amazing.  (I'd tell you to go look, but my guess is you've already pinned it yourself!)

Anyway, I thought it was high time we had a NO-BAKE roundup.  Also, it's fall.  These are important facts.
