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!

I made some oven BBQ'd ribs not long ago and needed something to go with them. I figured since the ribs had a cajun kick to them, I'd make a cheese sauce that did, too! Score! I poured the sauce over some cooked pasta but serving it over some veggies would be great, too!

Cajun Cheese Sauce

3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon  pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning (or more if you want spicy-spicy)
1 1/2 cups heavy cream or half & half
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Melt butter; remove from heat.

Whisk in flour and seasonings.

Gradually add heavy cream , stirring until well mixed.

Return to low heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and smooth.

Add cheeses. Stir until smooth and well blended. Serve with pasta or vegetables.

Makes 2 cups.

The line-up.

Melt the butter then whisk in the flour and seasonings.

Stir in the milk and cook until thick.

Add the cheese and stir and 
cook until nice and creamy.
