30-Minute Meals

I originally posted a compilation of 30-minute meals here. It was so popular, I decided to do us all a favor and convert it over to an ever-populating list. This, my friends, is the page you want to keep track of. Every time I post another 30-minute meal (or better yet, a 20-minute meal!), it will show up here. Awesome. Here’s to getting dinner on the table fast and painlessly.

  1. I was excited seeing 30 minute meals. Next week I go into Mass General Cancer Center & want hubby to be able to make meals for the 4 kids. I showed him this site and said,”LOOK Hunny! 30 Minute meals!” His response, “It’s never taken me 30 minutes to eat a meal. Is there a BPM (bites per minute) rule?” LOL Love that he makes me laugh. These ideas are great! (and even HE can make them 🙂 ) Thank you

  2. What happened to the link for 30 minute meals in the side bar? All I see is ads and it’s not listed as a separate category under recipes. I totally need instant access to these!

  3. Excited to try your recipes.

  4. You have the best food blog! Thank you so much for these!

  5. Can I just say that you are heaven sent to moms like me! I love love LOVE your recipes. I heard about you from my sister, and I make your recipes just about every week. You explain things well and make it easy for me. I just had to tell you that you are just awesome as I’m sitting here meal-planning and making my grocery list. Can’t wait to cook this week! Thanks so much for your hard work and service to moms and families everywhere! Keep it up girl!!!

  6. Last night, I made the Balsamic Chicken Noodle Bowls. My husband was so happy! I used fresh basil, and that was the ticket I think. Great, simple recipe!

  7. I made your taco soup. It was really good.

  8. Fun blog
