Let's be honest, time isn't always on your hands as a parent.
With everything else you have to consider before you even reach dinner time, it's unlikely there are going to be hours and hours to concoct an extravagant meal for your kids.
But you need to satisfy the hungry mouths that are no doubt hinting that they're hungry, so here are some amazing cooking hacks that will make dinner time a breeze.

Oh, and if you want to know how to bake on-call cookies well, it's all there for you.
