Step aside, Mother — it's Kristen's turn to pick the recipe and make the dinner! There's just one teensy problem: Kristen's imagination is far more developed than her cooking skills. With ingredients ranging from 400 hot dogs and 20 bags of marshmallows to a sweatshirt and a water pistol, Recipe is the laugh-out-loud chronicle of just about everything that can go wrong in a kitchen. The recipe may not end up as delicious, or even as edible, as Kristen hopes, but that's okay: the journey is often more fun than the destination. And there's a hungry raccoon in the backyard who'll eat just about anything.
