A new service to make home cooking easier

Everyone knows it's important to cook healthy meals from scratch, but sometimes it's tough. You've got to plan ahead. You have to shop for the right ingredients. You have to find the time to cook.

"Healthy Dinners" is a program at Southside Community Center to help making cooking from scratch easier. Here's how it works: First, you choose any or all of the available menu items, such as shepherd's pie or stuffed mushrooms. Then, you attend the event (this one is on March 2) where the ingredients are provided -- all you have to do is follow the directions provided, along with other participants. At home, you can either freeze your meal for a later date or cook and enjoy it the same day. You can prepare more than one meal at the event -- in other words, you can prepare a week's worth of dinners all at once.
