10 years on and I'm still enjoying modelling. With four adorable children 5 and under to feed - not forgetting a very hungry husband as well - making quick healthy tasty food means I can balance my work and home life....that's the plan anyway!! I'm happy to share my tried and tested favourite recipes with other parents. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do..... Love Gemma xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  10. 1 apple - peeled, cored and sliced
  11. 2 tsp caster sugar
  12. 2 tsp ground cinnamon

  2. Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, lemon zest and ginger in a large bowl. Add the egg yolk, pumpkin puree and oil; mix until smooth.
