This is the kind of tricks I used to play on my kids when they were young. It helps to think outside the box. Very cute.

Very Nice.

I thought too of a recipe. I was clueless, I ain't a chef. But I realized that it was a trick puzzle. If it ain't because of that, I wouldn't know.

That was a good one! Even though I knew it was a trick teaser, I still tried to figure out what kind of food she was making, since the title said "strange recipe."

aha! i didn't even think of that. it was one of those things that's so ridiculously obvious, it's difficult. i saw all the ingredients, and was like, "ew! what kind of a recipe would that even be?!?!" because i knew they weren't actually looking for a real recipe.

A very good one. Stumped me also, but how fun it was to try and figure out. What puzzled me was that flour was not on the list, so I could not imagine what it could be. Thanks for that one!!

I didn't get it, but I loved it! I laughed when I read the answer and I thought, Well no WONDER none of the words were connected to each other! Good laugh! Thanks!

I'm on a roll with these trick ones, but this one took me a few read-throughs to make sure there weren't patterns in the words (initial letters, syllables, etc.), then the answer popped out at me. Thanks for a fun teaser!
