There’s no need to spend hours in the kitchen with these easy to-make dishes. Here are delicious ideas to inspire the cook, please the family and impress the friends. Nothing should take you longer than 30 minutes in the kitchen, and though some dishes may stay in the oven for a bit longer than this, that’s of no concern to the cook. When time is short, make one main dish and choose a quick start or a fast finish for a fabulous meal that’s a cinch to put together.
