Experimental Dessert after watching The Hippie Gourmet on PBS

Some of my best kitchen adventures seem to come in the lively presence of my little nieces and nephews. Children are great and enthusiastic cooking tyros. I'm one with them . Inspired by watching Sesame Street and the Hippie Gourmet on PBS. By gosh, all of us should support public television and radio!
