Oh, the foods you'll eat!

In honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday March 2, we've rounded up some fun Seuss-inspired recipes from the web. So grab your copies of "Green Eggs and Ham" and "The Cat in the Hat" for inspiration and hit the kitchen with your kiddos to whip up some fantastical treats. And then follow it with a viewing of "The Lorax" as you munch.

How fun are these? Your kids can eat Lorax trees! We especially love the cotton candy leaves on top. Get the recipe at
