I wish I was in the mood for a Frosty from Wendy’s. It is soooo cold out today. It’s all of 55 degrees. Brrr. I know that’s not winter winter cold but when summer suddenly leaves, it feels freezing! I’m going to have to bookmark this delicious 3-ingredient delight for the next warm day (or for when I adjust to the weather).

Brandi Milloy, with PopSugar Food, has the best video showing how easy a DIY Frosty really is. You need half a gallon of chocolate milk, a tub of Cool Whip, and a can of sweetened condensed milk.

It’s cheaper to eat in and just as fun when you can eat the same dishes.

Here is a question that has America divided. No, it isn’t political but people are just as passionate about it. Cake or pie? Which side of the fence are you on?

It has 12 ways you can jazz up your crusts, taking them to an all time professional level. Baking win!

I’ve done number 4 before, with a spoon and a fork but the rest are all new to me. I’ve always wanted to do a lattice top but my attempts have failed spectacularly.

Do you know what ‘depression recipes’ are? In hard times, like the great depression, families had to stretch what they had and they learned to do so in the most creative of ways. Especially in the kitchen. Around this time things like Spam and Ritz crackers were developed. See? Creative. One of my favorite recipes is a chocolate cake that you can make without and eggs, butter, or milk. I thought that was as easy as it gets for cake but I was wrong. This YouTube video shows how to make a cake with only 2 ingredients. I’m impressed!

This cake requires 3 eggs and 3 chocolate bars. I think even the most novice of bakers could make this! From what I’ve read from people who have tried this, the batter must be mixed thoroughly or the consistency of the cake will be all wrong. Especially the merang! Looking for more simple recipes? Here are 21 classic recipes from around the depression era that are creative, simple, and delicious.

Cake Souffle

The cake is called Japanese Cotton Cheesecake. It’s not the traditional kind of cheesecake you would normally think of but it looks just as good. It is a light fluffy souffle that looks more like a pound cake. I’m game to try it! You?

Does 3 ingredients seem too good to be true? Well it isn’t! There are quite a few tasty dishes out there that only call for 3 things. Babble has gathered up 15 of the best.
