If you find yourself short on time between your demanding job and taking care of your family, then cooking can prove to be a hassle. Fortunately, with the right approach, it doesn’t have to be. Here are some effective tips to help you cook faster.

Meal Prep

Before you even think of turning on the stove, decide what you want to cook and begin preparing your ingredients well ahead of time. Slice whatever needs to be sliced and get all of your favorite seasonings in place so that when the time to cook arrives, all other tasks are already out of the way.


While it may seem daunting at first, practice cooking more than one ingredient at once. After all, modern stoves typically have multiple plates, meaning that so long as you keep an eye on everything, you can save plenty of time by cooking everything simultaneously.

Gather All Garbage in One Place

If your garbage can isn’t big enough to hold all of the trash that you throw out while cooking, you may find yourself walking back and forth to the dump outside. Save yourself time and effort by investing in a refuse bag or can that you can place near your kitchen counter that you’ll only empty out after all of your cooking is complete.
