We provided them with great tasting meals that were healthy and kitchen tested, with on-trend ingredients and cooking techniques, plus an abundance of shortcuts and informational sidebars. In addition, every recipe was organized and geared for the entire family.

Betty Crocker

  • Cookbook Contributor
  • Low-Fat Recipes Developer
  • Low-Cholesterol Recipes Developer

For Betty Crocker, Nancy developed over 100 recipes for The Low-Fat, Low-Cholesterol Cooking Today cookbook. In addition to the dietary restrictions, the recipes had to be family friendly and delicious, easy to prepare, and using easily obtainable ingredients and quick cooking techniques. Nancy developed 300 concepts, triple the concepts per recipe needed, for Betty Crocker to review. The selected recipes were then developed, kitchen tested, perfected and written in Betty Crocker’s preferred writing style, including cook’s tips and head notes. The book was so popular, it has been reprinted and updated since the original publication.
