5 Ingredient Recipes

I’ll be the first person to admit that any time I read a recipe with a long list of ingredients, my immediate reaction is to give up before even starting.

Five ingredient recipes make me really, really happy – they just seem so much faster and easier, and there’s a much better change you’ll already have everything you need for the recipe without having to make a separate trip to the grocery store.

Each of the following recipes contains just five ingredients (or fewer!) and could not be more simple to make!

    For me it depends. If it looks REALLY REALLY GOOD, I have to make it no matter what 🙂 But if it looks just alright, I won’t bother!
