About The Fast Recipe

Welcome to The Fast Recipe Food Blog, where you will find delicious, simple, tried-and-tested recipes for every occasion made quickly and with just a few ingredients. I aim to offer recipes suitable for busy people trying to feed a family in a healthy, tasty, and budget-friendly way.


“Fast recipes” is the motto. Simple techniques, short cooking times, making the most of the seasonal products, and the most of your pantry ingredients. For instance, I just hate buying a miso paste bag, using 3 tablespoons for a soup, and throwing the rest away after I find it expired in the fridge again…

So, when presenting you with such a recipe, I will do my best to have enough of them to help you actually use that darn miso bag (or whatever else it is).


Most of us live extremely busy lives: full-time jobs, children, housekeeping, social life. OK, I admit, the social parts of our lives do suffer a lot lately, but still the rest remains. And, on top of that, at least for me, the challenges of homeschooling during the pandemic, which I have to admit completely rob me of any spare time I might otherwise have.


I am fortunate enough to work full-time from home so that I can always be there for my kids and structure my work schedule the way I need to. But all the new tasks lead to working long hours in the evening and to having less time to spend on elaborate cooking, long shopping trips and so on.


But that doesn’t mean we don’t eat well. Cooking is my passion, and if the time is short, it just means that I have to adapt. So, I have been collecting, cooking, developing, improving hundreds of simple, yummy, and fast recipes using just a handful of ingredients. I can’t wait to share them all with you!

About Adina

My name is Adina. I am a creator, writer, and photographer, creating and photographing recipes for my blogs and clients. I started as a self-thought cook a long time ago (I am old enough to remember times where mobile phones didn’t exist). But I have thoroughly improved my skills by taking part in lots of cooking and pastry training courses. I’ve also run a small “wedding cake” business for almost 10 years, which I had to give up due to lack of time; it had become too much running a blog full-time and trying to find the time to make huge elaborate cakes at the weekend.


I come from a family of excellent cooks; I have it in my blood, so to say. From grandma (who raised me) to aunts and cousins, we all love to cook and bake, and we all do it well. Except for my sister… I don’t know what went wrong there…

What to expect from The Fast Recipe?

Many short, simple and super delicious recipes.

Rather healthy, nutritious food, with the occasional splurge, of course. I like to keep track of what I am eating, but I do love cakes… and I think that they can find their place in a balanced diet.
