3 Ingredient Recipes Meal


  • Cooking Pasta – I often see this tip: When cooking pasta, add a little oil to your boiling water to keep it from sticking together. This isn’t the best idea when mixing the pasta with sauce because if you are using pasta with sauce you want the pasta to absorb some of the sauce. If you add the oil, the sauce slips right off. The next tip tells how to keep pasta from sticking without using oil.
  • “So how do I keep my pasta from sticking?”– Make sure to use plenty of water to boil it in. Add the pasta to boiling water and keep it at a good hard boil the whole time you are cooking. This should take care of sticking.
  • Boiled Potatoes – I don’t hear much about boiled potatoes these days but years ago they were a popular side dish that was served often. You don’t have the mess of having to mash them, they are cooler to make in the summer than baked potatoes and they taste just as good. All you do is peel your potatoes, cut them in quarters lengthwise, and boil until tender. Serve them and let each person mash them with their fork, season them with butter, salt and pepper. You could place a dollop or sour cream or grated cheese on them. Yum!

Parmesan Chicken Tenders

Boneless, skinless chicken, cut into strips
1 egg, beaten
Parmesan cheese (the stuff that is already grated in the green can) and fry in your favorite oil.

Roll strips of  boneless, skinless chicken in beaten egg and  Parmesan cheese (the stuff that is already grated in the green can) and fry in your favorite oil.


You can adjust this next recipe to your taste. Cut back on the cheese, add a cooked pasta for a more substantial  meal or add a few black olives. Salt and/or season to taste.

Mozzarella Cheese Salad

16 oz mozzarella cheese – cubed
1 large seedless cucumber – cubed
1 container of grape tomatoes

This recipe needs to be done ahead of time or kept in the freezer for a handy snack or dessert when ever you need one. If you have gotten a bunch of yogurt on sale or have some that is going to expire this is a good way not to waste it.

Frozen Yogurt

Stick a Popsicle Stick into the center of a container of yogurt. Leaving foil lid on. Freeze.

    I’m 74, and we always had boiled potatoes as one of our potato standards – we called them self-mashies.

    I also ALWAYS keep a bowl of skin-on boiled potatoes in the fridge to use as home-fries, another quick and easy standard. I just use enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the skillet plus a splash more, slice the potatoes and layer them in the skillet, and add whatever we feel like: bell pepper, raw onion, mushrooms, whatever, to change it up a little each time. We like the potatoes nice and crispy on the bottom.

    In Sweden boiled potatoes were the main thing to have as a side dish, every single day until about 10 years ago. Ususallyboiled whole with the skins still on them (washed good of course). Now that you can buy the potatoes nicely washed it is so easy. Just rinse them quick and stick them in cold wate, pinch of salt. bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes (shorter for smaller or really fresh summer potatoes).

    Each person peel the skin of at their plate if so desired. Stick the fork in, and peel with your knife. Good with swedish meatballs, brown gravy and pickles. And almost anything else.

    Major skill to practise swedish preschoolers in so they can manage themselves in the canteen where potatoes are served several times a week. Yes, we are lucky enough to have all schools provide the children with a hot meal for lunch everyday. And it costs us nothing.

      This reminded me of when we had a Swedish exchange student. I fixed boiled potatoes and she was so excited to see them. I was so glad because I knew she was homesick and was trying to think of ways to help her feel better. Who would have thought boiled potatoes would make even a small difference. Yeahhh Sweden. Tawra got a scholarship to go to the university there and got to go over there. She became seriously ill though right as school started and had to come home. We didn’t how she was going to make it back being so sick she couldn’t hardly stand and she had to flight back alone but she made it thank goodness.

    The parmesan chicken tenders …… can you bake them vs frying them in a pan? If so, what temp and for how long? Thanks so much!

    • says

      Yes you can. I would be sure to grease the pan. Bake at about 400 degrees for about 15 mins. until they are no longer pink. I have seen similar recipes and the baking temp for the exact same thing is any where from 350 to 425 degrees so you see it really doesn’t have to be exact.

    The Parmesan Chicken Tenders- Do you dip the chicken in a mixture of the egg and parm cheese or dip the chicken in the egg then in the parm cheese?
