Create a healthy hub of the home

The kitchen has long been the hub of most households. It's where family and friends congregate to share stories and savor favorite recipes. Yet, with the comforts of home cooking and congregating come the potential dangers that lurk in the kitchen, whether they're from bacteria that can cause foodborne illness or from sharp knives and hot ovens that can cause injuries. So, in addition to having a kitchen that looks clean and draws in loved ones, you need to think about safe food practices, which include proper food storage, handling and cooking.
