G’day dads great to have you back! Welcome to Cooking with Cameron on the Fathering Channel, all the way from my abode in Tassie.
This week I am going all out Italian! I have the best recipe for an amazing rich tasting lasagne that the whole family will love.
Plus, the kids can help with a few of the preparation tasks – or, get them to decorate the table with a few candles and red serviettes for fun.
Post a snap and share it using @thefatheringproject #thefatheringchannel #dadscooknight
