When you're in a hurry, let these recipes save the day! They all have three ingredients (excluding salt, pepper and water) and can help you pull together a tasty meal that's delicious enough for company.
Minted Iced Tea Cooler
"This is a pleasant blend of fruit and mint flavors," says Debbie Terenzini Wilkerson of Lusby, Maryland. "It's very easy to make, but more special than traditional iced tea."
Mushroom Bacon Bites
A perfect appetizer for most any occasion, these are easy to assemble and brushed with prepared barbecue sauce. The recipe comes from Gina Roesner of Ashland, Missouri.
"I was raised on these popovers," says Debbie Terenzini of Lusby, Maryland. "My grandmother often made them for our Sunday dinners. The recipe couldn't be simpler."
Old-Fashioned Pork Roast
A lightly sweet coating keeps Hazel Fritchie's pork roast tender and moist. "With just four ingredients," says the Palestine, Illinois cook, "this roast is great for everyday dinners but looks impressive enough to serve guests."
Spicy Ground Beef Stew
"This has good flavor from the spicy tomatoes and green chilies," says Kelly Tyras of Houston, Texas.
Blueberry Ice Cream
Sparked by the wild blueberries on her property, Alma Mosher from Mohannes, New Brunswick has come up with many recipe ideas. "When my daughter and I made this at a Girl Guide meeting, it was well received," she says.
