About the Author

Margie Knoblauch was a Minnesota native who lived in the Minnetonka-Hopkins area of the Twin Cities. A wife and the mother of six children, she spent her summers at the family’s log cabin, “Knobby Pines,” near Park Rapids, Minnesota. Margie was a University of Minnesota home economics graduate with a degree in institutional management. She worked as a home economist for Northern States Power Company and as a representative of Admiral Corporation. She was a member of Home Economics in Homemaking, a group of home economics graduates, and was involved in the marketing of a cookbook for that group. Margie and her family were involved in several food-and-beverage establishments in Minnesota, including the Hopkins House and Breezy Point Resort. Mary Brubacher, a resident of Hopkins, Minnesota, has had a long-time interest in collecting recipes and cookbooks and preparing special foods. She has also helped produce a cookbook for a women’s group in Hopkins. A wife and the mother of three daughters, Mary has been a “cabin person” at Little Hubert Lake, near Nisswa, Minnesota. She is a graduate of Hamline University, with a bachelor’s degree in nursing, and was a school nurse in the Hopkins School District.

  • Vegetable oil
  • 3 beef bouillon cubes

In an ovenproof pot, brown roast in oil on all sides. Dissolve bouillon in 2 cups boiling water; stir in soup mix. Pour over roast.
