In these tough economic times, more people are apparently turning to "home-cooking."
Wisconsin Grocers Association President Brandon Scholz says even though prices at grocery stores have gone up, his members are seeing more people who are cutting back on eating out in restaurants and using the kitchen stove or grill. He says a homemade meal can be easier on the wallet and can still be fun.
For those "beginning chefs" out there, Scholz says there's plenty of information available to help them learn many of the basics. Scholz says cooking programs, such as those on TV's "Food Network," often provide recipes that can give people a new idea that's still easy to make.
