Hi, I’m Donna and I’m a relatively new employee at Laura’s Lean Beef (new being less than 1 year). I work as a Receptionist. Since my face is the first one that everyone sees when they come to our office, and my voice is the first voice you will talk to if you call our office, I’ve gotten to meet, greet and get to know my co-workers very quickly and on a somewhat personal level. I grew up in a … continued…

I have to admit – I am not a gourmet cook (shh! don’t tell anyone). I have always loved perusing cookbooks, but often by the time I finish looking at all the ideas, I am too overwhelmed to try any of the new recipes! Just give me hearty, wholesome food ideas that I can pull together in 30 minutes or less when I get home from work.  When my boys were younger, and I walked in the front door from … continued…
