Obviously, in English we would actually say "I'm making lunch" or "I'm preparing lunch", but I wasn't about to risk losing a heart :)

We would say "Preparo il pranzo" as well, in Italian. Both works! :)

Why can't that mean "Cook lunch."?

Because that implies "you" as an imperative sentence, of which this is not.

It's very difficult to understand what the woman is saying - especially when you want to hear the phrase or sentence said slowly. It is very frustrating.
