My granddaughter has recently shown an interest in helping me cook. She just has one stipulation: she wants to pick the recipe. Saturday, I learned how she would make her selections.

While she was playing a game, Calilou, on, she discovered some dishes she thought would be proper for the entire family. She even noted who she thought should help her make “which dish that sounded delicious.”

The first recipe she printed off for me was for this refreshing fruit salad. The recipe originates from the Cookie Jar (2006) by Ed Chouette.
