I cook every night except Fridays (takeout pizza) and Saturdays (fast food or eat out), and by cooking I mean meat, starch, veg. Right now I'm in love with making soup (the slower cooked, the better) so I'm a little bummed that the weather is finally getting warmer. We've had soups every Thursday since October, except on Thanksgiving. I've got quite the repertoire now.
As for cooking mags, I recommend Every Day
, which is a Martha Stewart publication. The recipes are easy, and they rarely take more than 30-45 minutes start to finish. They use regularly available ingredients usually, and introduce other ingredients in a way that you'd actually want to eat them. I think it's available in an app.
