My mom did all the cooking when I was growing up, and quite honestly, and self-admittadly, she isn't very good, beacuse she loathes it, so puts very little effort into it.
My dad took early retirement when he was 58, and promptly took over the cooking. Mom LOVED this since he also took over grocery shopping, another loathsome chore to her. She did the dishes, and everyone was happy! Dad also was capable (but didn't have to) of cleaning, dusting, vacuuming etc. At that point, they had someone come in to do it.
