With this being my first blog post I want to inform readers of my initial goals and objectives. I would first like to educate my readers about 30 minute meals. I am currently a senior a Georgia Southern University. Taking 16 hours of class and working part time I know how hard it can be to even breathe, let alone cook a nutritious meal at home. I love to cook, and thought what a perfect way to share my love of cooking, fulfill my class requirements, and share easiness of 30 minute meals. Also, I will be getting most of 30 minute meal recipes from Pinterest, if you don’t know about Pinterest, you should definitely check it out, and follow my boards. http://www.pinterest.com or http://pinterest.com/kboston128/
Attached are 20 blogs that I found to fit into the 30 minute meal category:
** The following blogs feature simple meals and are home to other categories such as gardening, parenting, health, and crafts.**
