Favorite Cooking Shortcuts?

We've got a new baby at home, and with two working parents our time to prepare a decent meal each night has been drastically cut back from what we were used to pre-baby. Do you have any favorite hints, tips, or shortcuts that cut down on cooking time when you're in a time crunch? We've got some good quick recipes, but I'd like to figure out ways to shorten the cooking time of some of our longer-cooking favorites.

Thanks for any help you can give!
