In the past several years, kitchen activity has increased as families bypass the drive-through to cook at home more often.
According to a recent survey from the maker of a popular nonstick coating for cookware, more than two-thirds of home cooks choose nonstick pots and pans because they help families cook convenient and healthy meals that are easy to clean up. "You don't need a lot of equipment to cook a simple and healthy meal at home. With a chef knife and a large, high quality, nonstick skillet you can cook a lot of really great recipes," said Janice Newell Bissex, M.S., R.D., author of the new family cookbook "No Whine with Dinner" and co-founder of www.MealMakeoverMoms.com.
