Does your hectic schedule leave you feeling like you have no time to cook dinner? Just say “no” to the fast food drive through and say “hello” to these easy 30 minute recipes.

30 Minute Recipes

During the school year, evenings are usually a rush of homework, after school activities and prep for the next day. I don’t have the luxury of taking my time with diner like I enjoyed during the summer month. I need dinner to be quick, I need it to be easy and I need it done fast. As in less than 30-minutes fast.

I rounded up all my tried-and-true 30 minute recipes. But for some variety, polled a few other bloggers for their favorite ideas. The response was overwhelming! I included the most droolworthy submissions that are definitely getting a turn on our dinner rotation. I hope this 30 minute recipe compilation takes the stress out of dinner for you just as much as for me.
