Hey guys! As you know, I’m going to be trying out different Pinterest pins to see if they work before you try them. Pinterest has some pretty cool ideas on it but they don’t always work, so this blog is here to show you my experiences of testing pins and if they are successful. I will be trying out everything from DIY’s to recipes and more.
I searched for stuff that could be a good theme for this particular blog post, and while I was looking through the popular page of Pinterest, I noticed that there was a ton of recipes on there. I love food, but one thing I hate is having to cook something that takes forever to prepare and uses a bunch of ingredients that I wouldn’t normally have a home.
However, as I continued searching through these recipes, I came upon a pin that showed pancakes made of only three ingredients that were apparently super fast to cook! After finding this, I searched for three ingredient meals in the search bar and a ton popped up. It turns out that this is a pretty popular thing on Pinterest, so I thought I would try it out!
For this blog post, I am going to show you how to make two different meals made with only three ingredients. The food I chose to make for this blog were pancakes and sweet and sour chicken.
To start off, I thought I would try out the pancakes. All you need for these is a banana, two eggs, and some cinnamon. I was kind of worried about these because I thought there was no way you could make a pancake out of these ingredients (and also I just don’t really like bananas). However,I still gave it a shot.
The instructions said the first thing to do was to mash up the banana with a fork in a bowl. Then I was supposed to add the two eggs and some cinnamon and whisk everything together. It looked pretty disgusting, but I decided that cooking them would (hopefully) make everything okay.
Next, I had a pan already heated up on the stove and all I had to do was spray it with some cooking spray. I poured some of the batter into the pan and let it sit for a little while. It was actually starting to look like a pancake until I flipped it. It was too thin so it all just came apart, and I had to try and force it back together to look normal again (which didn’t work).
For the next couple of tries, I made the pancakes thicker and when I flipped them, they actually looked like pancakes! I stacked them on a plate and they looked pretty good. The final test was how they tasted and luckily they were pretty nice. They didn’t taste too much like a banana, and they actually were kind of like a pancake, especially with some syrup. I started off thinking I would hate this food, but I would make these again. These banana pancakes were a win.
A lot of the three-ingredient meals on Pinterest used chicken in them, and one that stood out to me was sweet and sour chicken made out of chicken breast, cubed canned pineapple, and Catalina dressing. I know that this combination of food doesn’t sound very appetizing, but I was curious to see how it would turn out.
The first step in the recipe was to cut up all the chicken into equal pieces and then put it in frying pan with some oil, salt, and pepper. While this was cooking, I put one part pineapple (with the juice) and one part Catalina dressing in a bowl together, stirred it, and just like the pancake mix, it looked pretty gross.
After the chicken was completely cooked, I took it out of the pan and put it on a separate plate. Then poured the pineapple-dressing mixture into the pan and let it simmer and reduce down. Once that was done, the chicken went back in the pan and I mixed it in with the sauce.
You could eat it on its own, but I decided to serve it on some rice. The end result looked pretty cool since the sauce turned the chicken and rice hot pink. It didn’t exactly taste like normal sweet and sour chicken, but it was still a pretty good meal. so I would consider this one a win as well.
I thought the three ingredient recipes were a really cool idea and there is a lot more of them on Pinterest. They allow for a really fun and creative way to make a meal when you’re in a hurry and don’t have time to go out to the store. The pancakes and sweet and sour chicken were really fun to make and I will definitely be trying out more of these recipes in the future. Thanks for checking in and stay tuned for more Pinterest wins and fails!
