You really should.
  1. It's easier than you think.
  2. It's usually healthier.
  3. It's an it's an important life skill, and the more you do it, the better you get at it.
  4. No cookbooks? The Internet is your cookbook.
  5. Cooking for someone is one of the most basic ways of expressing your love for them (this applies even when you're cooking only for yourself)
  6. You control the spice, heat, salt and fat levels of everything on the plate.
  7. You control the playlist. No Muzak in your kitchen (unless you love Muzak, in which case, knock yourself out).
  8. You can do it without putting on pants.
