  • Usually 10-30 minutes. If it is something that takes longer, I always double or triple the recipe and freeze it for later. I only cook long involved meals when my husband is home. When he is working I use the already prepared meals in the freezer or cook somehing simple.

  • depends what I'm cooking, but average about 30 mins

  • As rule under 45 minutes. Sometimes all day things in the crockpot..but they don't require much for long stretches. I try to keep it simple but interesting.

  • 15 min. to 1 hour most nights, although special meals may take longer.

  • Usually an hour. I start cooking at 4pm and we eat at 5pm. I'm constantly getting distracted by the kids (who are doing homework or chores) and the baby who is always right under my feet. It's pretty crazy during that hour.

  • 30-60 minutes depending on what I'm making but that's rarely entirely actively cooking. It also includes things like oven time.

  • Probably 30 minutes is about average. Sometimes shorter, sometimes longer.
