Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Traci's Fruit Dip

I thought I would share with you a recipe for this dip we served at our daughter's wedding. A friend of mine (Hi Traci!) gave it to me. It's served at lots of wedding and baby showers that I attend and it's always a hit so I figured I'd serve it at the wedding and see if we'd get the same results. We did. I had several requests for the recipe. I was happy to share the love! This recipe is too good to keep a secret. So make it, serve it and be a hero!

Traci's Fruit Dip

2 cups pineapple juice
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons flour
2 8-ounce containers Cool Whip

Combine pineapple juice, flour, and egg and mix until all combined. Stir mixture into a medium saucepan with the sugar. Cook over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Allow to cool completely. Fold in Cool Whip. Chill until ready to use.

Serve with assorted fruits.

The original recipe is half of the above ingredients....I doubled it to serve LOTS!

Here's what you'll need 
for this yummy dip!

Combine the pineapple juice, sugar, 
eggs, flour and butter. Cook it until it's 
nice and thick and bubbly.

Then cool it, baby! I put the pan 
in a sink full of iced water to speed 
up the process. I'm impatient. Did you know that?

The transfer the cooled mixture into a large bowl.

Fold in the cool whip. Chill then serve!

Then let your spoiled pet lick 
the Cool Whip container.
