How much time do you normally spend cooking? the question of the week

Desserts

These days we are all in a hurry and, let's face it, we spend less time cooking, sometimes even opting for pre-cooked meals, going out or ordering something at home. Many times not even for pleasure, but for lack of time. That is why I want to ask you this question of the week:

How much time do you normally spend cooking?

Except for weekends and storage dates - I've always loved this expression - my favorite is recipes that don't require more than half an hour, although up to an hour seems fine, as long as the recipe particularly appeals to me. And you? I would love for you to leave your habit Direct to Paladar Answers.

Last week's question: Do you grow aromatic herbs at home?

Last week we asked you if you grew aromatic herbs at home, if you had joined the urban garden trend. Surprisingly, and to my joy, many of you have encouraged to do it, with marianmuher's response being the most elaborate and valued:

I grow several: rosemary, sauce thyme, mint, spearmint, parsley, oregano, bay leaf, basil. I have a small garden and in it I have made a tiny place for them. The laurel, with the climate here, has grown a lot, it is super high, they have told me to prune it but I have not done it yet. I have to climb a ladder for it and I'm not short. So you can give an idea of ​​how it has grown. I have planted parsley twice since as Leozurita says very well as soon as the flower comes out it dies, but I plant it again in spring. The rosemary was a bit spoiled, but three years ago I could do it and now it has grown into a great plant. The basil has spoiled so I have to re-sow now, although this time it will be the authentic Italian, the one with pesto, which they say is better around here than the other. A nursery has already told me where they sell it. Oregano must have had what happened to parsley, I will also re-sow it. I prune the thyme and mint every winter. I do not know if it is done or not, but before I did not do it and there were times that they came out very weak, since I started doing it they come out with more force. I also have a mandarin that gives super sweet mandarins and which I fertilize naturally, so the mandarins taste so much better. Oh, and a lemon tree that a friend who has come to my house this morning has pruned for me, leaving it reduced to a minimum. I hope he recovers soon, at least for next year. The peppermint, which was given to me by another friend and coworker, this winter has been stunned and has hardly any leaves. Around here they say that it is because of the winter that she has done and that in spring she recovers by herself. I hope they are right. Regards.
