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!

What Christmas would be complete without Corn Flake wreaths? Being a big Rice Krispie Treat fan, to me...the wreaths are always a treat. Even if they DO leave my tongue green. This is a great project to do with kids. You know how kids are...the messier and more colorful, the better. Now...I have to admit, I've never made these before but I've seen them around for years. A good friend shared with me her recipe so I'm here to share it with you. If you've never made these, then get on the stick....they're yummy! An old fashioned holiday favorite!
