Chips, Chips, Chips! And, Fruit Salsa. I wish I had a huge bag of chips just for my friend, John Carter, anchor at WBTV, Charlotte. He and the Team loved them, as you can see in the photo.
This super-fun cooking segment had a purpose and a passion. Let’s get our kids into the kitchen, cooking with some basic skills and healthy foods!
