Cooking with your kids

My middle son and I have come to really enjoy cooking together — especially coming up with secret sauces for grilling pork tenderloin. Taking a hint from my friend on this recipe, which is based around barbecue sauce, we include just about anything we can find in the fridge.

The last time we made the sauce, it had 24 ingredients, including honey, Tabasco, Kikkoman, and orange juice. We had a great time having everyone else try to guess the ingredients…..which of course I cannot share!
