But could they please a crowd of picky eaters? In this week's TODAY Food Kid Approved segment, Camila's wings and couscous were put to the test by four kid judges who tasted her dishes and then rated them.

Camila was so nervous about what our panel of judges would say that she comically crouched down to hide. Buy there was no need to worry because both of her dishes were unanimously kid-approved. Our panel of kid judges gave them four oven-mitt thumbs up!

Camila adds a drizzle of honey to the wings before they're broiled to impart a sweet flavor that makes them extra special — and kid-friendly.
