Feeding a family on a budget

Darla P. Jaros Food Skills Workshops

Darla Jaros of Waterford Township will be teaching recipes from and will be available to sign copies of her Cookbook, The Kitchen Assistant: Time and Money Saving Tips in the Kitchen.

As a single mom supporting three children, Jaros learned the importance of fulfilling her children's preferential tastes with presentation as well as nutrition.

After collecting recipes and helpful kitchen tips for more than 30 years, Darla combined her knowledgeable and tried-and-true basic principles of cooking into this helpful and unique cookbook.

Darla utilizes fresh ingredients and a handful of useful guidelines to cook quick-and-easy meals on a tight budget. She is well versed in providing delicious, wholesome, and inexpensive meals while saving time and cleanup in the kitchen.

Her useful and unique tips will help you successfully prepare for a healthy dining experience while stretching your grocery dollars. The Kitchen Assistant is sure to become your daily reference guide and a permanent fixture in your family kitchen.
