Cooking can make you popular

The world will come to your door if you can cook. For some, that may hold little appeal, since they would rather meet the world at a restaurant and leave the cleanup to the hired help.

But if you’re like us and enjoy entertaining and if you’re good at it, you gain rock-star status. Friends and family brag about your fabulous culinary skills, schlep new friends to your table and invite you to come to dinner at their house. (“Bring something? Sure! How about that pear custard you make? Or, maybe your famous goat-cheese appetizer!”)

The downside is that they will want you to host holiday dinners, but that’s hardly a downside if you love cooking. Have them bring wine. Expensive wine is best.
