Hi, my name is Catalina and I am the blogger behind 30 Minutes Meals. The recipes found here are meant to make time spent in the kitchen fun and easy. You will find recipes for breakfast, dinner and dessert that can be done in 30 minutes or less. My goal is to have everyone spend less time cooking, and more time enjoying the food! With focus on easy to find and affordable ingredients, clear instructions and video content for many recipes, anyone can easily recreate these delicious meals at home.

I live in NYC metro area with my husband and 4 year old son. I moved from Moldova to NYC over 10 years ago and fell in love with all the food options here. I like to cook lots of comfort food and to put my spinoff on classic recipes. On 30 Minutes Meals you will find a combo of healthier and more indulgent recipes, as well as options for kids and vegetarians. Most importantly, you will find out that good food does not necessarily take hours of labor!
