Colin believes that there's no better way to share in life than to invite people into your home. "Bring people into your sanctuary to break bread," he says. "I think you will agree that some of the most memorable moments in life are spent around the dinner table."

In this day and age, Colin says people don't entertain as often as they used to because they think it's too time-consuming. Not so, he says. "We're all holding down two, three jobs, working 18 hours a day," he says. "The savvy entertainer today is the resourceful entertainer."

Don't spend all day cooking—Colin urges hosts to head to the corner store for pre-packaged salads and other time savers. "You get no medals for chopping, slicing, dicing, peeling and doing it from scratch," he says.

The rewards are well worth the effort. "There are few things that make a life worth celebrating," he says. "Good food, good wine, good people."
