"Now that we're all so busy it's more important than ever to get your children into the kitchen and pass down your family secrets," says Donna. "Baking is a great pastime to share with your kids and it gives you a wonderful opportunity to show them how much fun cooking can be."
From crunchy Anzac biscuits and gingerbread men to yo-yo biscuits with lemon icing filing, these recipes will take you back to the times when mum or grandma relied on you to be their number one helper.
"I have such happy childhood memories of making biscuits and cakes. My mum gave me so much freedom in the kitchen. I was able to experiment to my hearts content. Now I love baking with my children, it's one of our favourite ways to spend time together."
Cute meals to get your kids eating (without having to bribe them).
"Being a cook I expected my kids to eat everything but even I have to deal with fussy eaters," says Donna.
Bring fun to your food with simple recipes that will have your children eating and enjoying every mouthful. One way to encourage your kids to eat is to use cookie cutters to cut food into shapes like star-shaped potato chips or gingerbread man-shaped ham and cheese French toast.
"The key is to keep it cute and cheerful," says Donna. "Try serving mini meals in tiny bowls or snack-sized portions. It gives kids a sense of ownership and you can introduce them to a whole new range of flavours too."
