Cookbooks
Home Page

Providing nutritious meals for family members should be one of the major goals of any homemaker.  Most cookbooks have recipes that are too involved and detailed for the busy homemaker.  Using the knowledge that I have gained from two degrees in home economics, many of my recipes use five or fewer ingredients.  My receipes are easy to make call for no unusual ingredients. 


My cookbooks are there to help you successfully complete the task of balancing career and family

Donna's Helpful Hints

For daily tips and recipes from Donna, be sure to "Like" the Facebook page!

  • Soften butter quickly by grating it.  Or, heat a small pan and place it upside down over the butter dish for several minutes.  Or, place in the microwave for a few seconds.

  • When you're near the end of the baking time, turn the oven off and keep the door closed.  The heat will stay the same long enough to finish baking your cake or pie and you'll save all that energy.

  • Do not throw out stale cereal.  Put it on a cookie sheet with sides (jellyroll pan) and bake at 325 degrees for about 10 minues stirring once or twice.  This really helps remove the stale taste and the cereal works wonderful in your recipes.

  • Keep unpopped popcorn in the freezer to help eliminate unpopped kernals.

Easy Roast

1 (12oz.) can cola
1 (10oz.) can cream of mushroom soup
1 (3 to 4 lb.) boneless chucck roast
2 onions, thinly sliced

Combine the cola and mushroom soup.  Place the roast in a baking dish and pour the soup mixture over the roast.  Add the onions.  Cover and bake for about 2 1/2 hours at 325°.

Notes from Donna:  Roasting a piece of meat at a high or low heat, involves a steady, even, dry heat that cooks from the outside in.  This is the opposite of microwaving, which cooks from the inside out.  When roasting, the air should circulate freely around whatever's being roasted.  To help with an even flow of air, place the oven rack in the center of the oven unless otherwise stated in the recipe.  When roasting meats, place a small rack at the bottom of the pan, which lifts the meat out of the fat drippings and allows the heat to circulate underneather for even cooking.
