6 Tips to Get Dinner on the Table Faster
Prep What You Can
While most of us don’t have time to pre-chop all our vegetables before we start a recipe, it’s handy to get a few things out of the way before you start cooking, like mince a clove of garlic or measure a cup of flour. And of course, anything you can prep during the weekend (think: chopped vegetables, cooked rice, etc.) will always help you on those busy weeknights.
Boil Water Faster
Pasta is one of the fastest options for dinner -- until you can get the water to boil, that is. Turbocharge your pasta-making routine with these simple steps: fill your stockpot with already-hot water from the tap, place the pot on the stove on high heat and cover the pot with a lid.
