Have you ever heard of "semi-homemade" cooking? There was a television series on dedicated to it for a while. It got criticism because of many of the "recipes" featured, but the concept actually makes sense. A lot of families don't necessarily have time to create things completely from scratch, so starting with prepared ingredients and then customizing them can be a way to have at-home cooking with less work. It will still often be healthier and cheaper than eating out or using takeout food, but not quite as much work or time involved. When I was growing up, we would use semi-homemade cooking when my mom was short on time, or when it was time for one of us kids to take a turn to cook. I still do today when I'm in a pinch for time.
hormel has a variety of products that can be used in "semi-homemade" cooking. They have a whole recipe website with great ways to create nice dishes. They have some fun "eat out at home" with ways to bring Asian flavors to your table, and recipes appropriate for parties and entertaining. There are also videos on a variety of food preparation topics, appropriate for novice cooks to those with more experience.
It's also the 75th anniversary of Dinty Moore/Hormel Chili. They've put together a special 75th anniversary film clip as well as a timeline and classic ads, for those of you who are interested in taking a trip down memory lane.
