Junegirl58, it is easy to get discouraged after 2 years of little earnings. I took a quick look at your hubs and although the info is good, most of them are short (recipes and poems) which doesn't require a lot of word count. My understanding is that Google likes lots of text, i.e., longer articles that are informative, broken up with images and subtitles. A few of your longer hubs had a lot of straight text and paragraphs without subheadings and images.
The other issue is the small number of hubs. You need a lot more hubs to get earnings to increase over time.
You shouldn't quit yet. You have some good stuff. You just need to rework what you have (formatting, images) and double the number of hubs you have over the next few months. Good luck, be patient, hope to see you around in 2014.
