QI have two granddaughters ages 7 and 14 and I am toying with the idea of having them come for a spend-the-night party. I will need things in the kitchen that will be quick and easy to prepare, as I intend to let them do the cooking! What would you suggest for supper and snacks for the party? They both have helped me cook.

A What a special time for you and your granddaughters. Having them do the cooking is a splendid idea, and we've found three simple recipes they'll enjoy making and eating.

For starters, they can make Alphabet Breadsticks — an easy snack made with refrigerated bread dough, melted butter and salad dressing mix. While they're enjoying their breadsticks with a glass of milk, they can assemble and bake Everyone's Favorite Pizza. For a special treat after dinner, they'll love to make their own Ice Cream Filled Chocolate Cups, using chocolate cereal cups you make before they arrive. What fun!

Enjoy your grandkids.

Pretzels are what the neighbor kids and I used to make. Dough in bread machine and floured board to twist and turn them. They still talk about how much fun it was
