Mom with very little time to cook,
This review is from: Rachael Ray 365: No Repeats--A Year of Deliciously Different Dinners (A 30-Minute Meal Cookbook) (Paperback)
As the mother of a one-year-old who's beginning to want to eat what Mommy and Daddy are eating (until now, too often fast food), I decided I'd better get into the habit of cooking at home. Since I work full-time, the idea of 30-minute meals had a lot of appeal. The recipes I've tried so far were delicious, but I was disappointed that, even with help in the kitchen, none of them has taken only 30 minutes to prepare--they've usually taken an hour or so. I'm not completely inexperienced in the kitchen, so I don't think it's just me being slow . . . maybe Rachel's prep is lightning fast. Also, the recipes are very gourmet, and many call for ingredients that you might not be able to find at your local grocery store. Guess I'll still have to do some more searching for true 30-minute meals (if they exist!).

Hi there, I understand what you mean. If your looking for new ways of cooking fast meals the best places you can go to is the Youtube and find them on the internet. I take care of my elderly mother and most times its hard to cook meals for her that she can have that contain less salt and sugar, since she has diabetes and high blood pressure. Sometimes I improvise on what kind of meals I can make and I try to make it simple for myself. Sometimes my friends teach me how they cook quick and easy meals for their families when they don't have much time. I wish you all the best.
