You’ll Love these 30 Recipes with only 3 Ingredients

As a busy mom, I don’t have that much time to make something with a million different ingredients and steps. I need a recipe that my family and I will love, that I can put together in 30 min or less, and that I will hopefully make again and again. These 30 recipes with only 3 ingredients check all of those boxes for me. What sounds easier than a recipe that only has three elements to it? If you are anything like me, you will really love these recipes.
