Family get-togethers can be stressful.  Take some of the pressure off by creating three-ingredient recipes that are quick, simple, and absolutely delicious.  If you're running low on time, these can be whipped up at the last minute.  No one needs to know just how easy these were to put together.  Enjoy some well earned time off this Thanksgiving.  

Easy bacon cream cheese roll ups
If you believe that everything is better with bacon, these easy bacon, cream cheese roll ups might be just up your alley.  They're simple to make.  Place a dollop of cream cheese onto a slice of fresh bread (crusts removed), wrap in bacon, and place in the oven.  They make a delicious appetizer.

3 ingredient chili
Hearty comfort food is a wonderful addition to any meal during this time of year.  This 3 ingredient chili works with any protein base.  Just cook one pound of protein, one can of beans, and one can of diced tomatoes on the stove for thirty minutes.  Season and top your chili as desired.

Brie and cranberry phyllo turnovers
Cranberry and brie phyllo turnovers make fast and easy appetizers that your guests will find irresistible.  These step-by-step, illustrated instructions will walk you through the process from start to finish.  You don't need to tell your friends and family how simple these were to make.

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits
A can of buttermilk biscuit dough, a package of shredded cheddar cheese, and garlic powder are all you need to make delicious garlic cheddar biscuits.  These make either a lovely appetizer or side dish.  If you're open to using more than three ingredients, think about adding in some herbs, salt, and pepper, to deepen the flavor of this dish.

Vegan caramel apples with coconut cream
Few foods are as synonymous with fall as candied apples.  These vegan caramel apples are so simple.  Melt granulated sugar on the stove, add some coconut milk, cook, chill, and dip your fruit.  Make this a group activity by setting out bowls of toppings and allowing guests to choose their own.  Vegan dark chocolate, walnuts, brazil nuts, pecans, hemp seeds, and chia are just a handful of topping suggestions.

Vegan banana peanut butter ice cream
Peanut butter desserts are ever popular, and this vegan peanut butter ice-cream is sure to go down a treat.  It's easy to whip up delicious ice-cream that's vegan, gluten free, and free of refined sugars in a regular blender.  This creamy and satisfying frozen dessert requires banana, unsalted peanut butter, and sea salt.  Scroll down the page to find the recipe for the perfect compliment to the ice cream - three-ingredient chocolate caramel sauce.
