When you cook with children, make sure you have them read through the recipe first, then make a shopping list. It is important to have them involved in every aspect of the cooking process. Try to cook what is fresh and in season. Cooking light is a must in the summertime. Also remember to have them wash their hands and have adult supervision around the stove and sharp knives. Here are some of my favorite cooking camp recipes. COLORFUL SUMMER FRUIT PLATTER 1 ripe cantaloupe 1 small seedless watermelon 1 pineapple

2 bunches seedless grapes 1 pint strawberries 1 pint raspberries 1 pint blueberries I like to begin the platter with a base of colorful sliced watermelon, cantaloupe and pineapple. Peel the outside of the cantaloupe, cut it in half through the stem end and scoop out the seeds. Place the melon halves cut side down on the cutting board and slice them straight across into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Fan each half melon out slightly and arange it on the platter. Next, cut off the top and bottom of the pineapple, peel the outside
