Dining Out vs. Eating In: Why It’s Good to Get Cooking Again

Between a long day at work and running household errands, it can be easy to reach for that take-out menu (or app).

If you’re still this close to piling everyone into the car and heading to your nearest pizza joint, the numbers below may convince you to do otherwise. Here's a look at the personal and financial benefits of cooking at home, along with some smart and healthy ways to play chef in your own kitchen again.
