Every Wednesday at noon, Food section staff members and guests answer your cooking questions. You can submit a question in advance in the box below. Just remember to return when we’re live, or read the transcript after the chat ends.

Turkey day is behind us. We’re in the middle of Hanukkah. And cookie season fast approaches. We’re tired and we bet you are too.

So, this week, let’s focus on ways to cut down on cooking times and mess in the kitchen so you can catch your breath. Maybe that means meal-prepping, super-quick recipes (see the 20-minute Molletes pictured above), snacking your way to dinner or lots of one-pot and one-pan dishes.

Let’s talk about all your (and our) favorite ways to make things easy. Share your favorite 15-minute dishes. Got questions on how to simplify your favorite dishes? We can help with that too.
