Kitchen Makeover Blog Series

Daily life can be a juggling act – balancing work, family, kids’ activities and personal commitments can be overwhelming. That’s probably why more and more Americans are eating out regularly rather than cooking meals at home.

However, there are many health advantages to cooking at home more often, including money saved, the ability to better maintain a healthy lifestyle, and important quality time spent in the kitchen with children and loved ones.
