Cooking at home is definitely time consuming, and to many, it's a chore. However, there's inherent value in cooking dinner for yourself and your loved ones. Not only is it healthier than eating out, it's a tangible way to express your love -- one that also helps your loved ones survive.

Hazlitt Deputy Editor Jordan Ginsberg explains:
You work on the Internet all day, trying and sometimes struggling to attach meaning and value to efforts that can seem inherently ephemeral and intangible, and it's nice to come home and actually produce something, the value of which is self-evident: this is literally the thing that will keep you from going hungry. Do it well enough, and it's something for you and your loved ones to actually look forward to, but at the very least, it is necessary. This is essential. You are helping people survive.
