There's no better way to have fun in the kitchen then to spice up your recipes with a couple of kids -- especially grandkids.

That's exactly what I did when I was sent a copy of Kids in the Kitchen Cookbook, a TIME For Kids book. I called my daughter and asked to borrow my grandchildren for the weekend.
