Hot Grill Summer, Season 2, Vol. 6 – Kid Takeover!

By Kyle (and Alice) Roberts

Last year, we sent our oldest daughter Alice to a three-day 4-H cooking camp.

Naturally, as parents, we were hoping she’d come home with some pretty mean skills and teach us a thing or two.

And boy, did she. Like her father, and his father before him, Alice has the cooking gene.

In today’s Hot Grill Summer, Alice has shared a fun, easy recipe for a cheesy appetizer with the perfect amount of seasoning and flavor. Two ingredients, and you’ll have a bubbling cheese round with crispy edges. It’s an easy app if you’re in a pinch.

Cooking with your child is a true joy. And her favorite part of cooking?

“I enjoy getting to taste it afterward,” Alice says. “It’s rewarding after the effort you put into it.”

Amen, young one.
