“Planning ahead is key, I always have a lot of frozen bases,” says Dekker. “And always think about ingredients with lower cook times. Pasta is a 15-minute cook compared to something like thick potatoes, which take much longer.”
Tacos make another great 30-minute meal, and also serve as a dependable backup. With corn tortillas in the freezer and salsa in the pantry, Dekker can always cobble together a satisfying last minute dish with a Mexican kick.
