I think there might be too many variables to calculate that properly. Recipes have different prep times, and some of this will depend on the quality of the stove (if a stove is used at all, which wouldn't be the case for salads, some sandwiches, fruit parfait, things that are microwaved) and other cooking equipment like food processors and grills. Prep time is also affected by one of the cooking skill challenges they will pick up along the way. Some of the stoves give an extra skill bonus. Some players use NRaas Relativity to affect skill gains through life span scaling and other factors, so that would add more variables to the mix. Cooking and gardening are also odd in that a skill burst is provided when the finished dish is placed on the counter (or something is harvested) in addition to that which is gained during the cooking (or gardening) procedures.
I had to put a roof over the garden so that my sim could get her first few levels of gardening! Since it's the rainy season, she didn't have to water which is great once you've already leveled up a few times. Looks like I'm going to have to find her a non-cheaty way to get those cookbooks if I want to open a restaurant any time soon.
