    Diana's parents arrived unannounced

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes? Is it correct to say "in" or should it be "at" home?

    Diana's parents arrived unannounced, but she managed to cobble together dinner from what she had in home.

    Only at is possible there. Diana could have cobbled something together from what she had in her refrigerator.

    Or "... in the house".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
