Shouldn't it be "de bonnes crêpes"? I am seriously confused right now ;D

I agree with you, Patrick.

Thanks - I wondered the same thing.

The bot pronounces this as "Day Wazeau"...Is there supposed to be a liaison between the first two words? As in, "Day-zwaseaux"?

Yes, you're right, there is a liaison :) If you want to learn more about liaisons, here is a site which can help you: http://ielanguages.com/blog/french-and-its-secret-liaisons/

Thanks, David. :-) I know about liaisons; I just wanted to make sure that the offered pronunciation isn't an exception or an alternative pronunciation that made its way into casual speaking. Sounds like it's just a case of computeritis.
