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!

My mom gave me this recipe years and years ago, before IT Guy and I married. Then I used to make it for my kids when they were little. They loved hearing the blender whirring because that usually meant this treat was on its way. The original recipe called for a raw egg. (Remember this was given to me back in the 70's when people weren't concerned about salmonella.) If you can lay (hahaha!!) your hands on a FRESH raw egg, you can use it in this recipe if you want. I know some people are squeamish about raw eggs. I am one of them. I certainly would never eat a raw egg by itself. But I promise you can't taste it in this recipe! I've changed the raw egg to meringue powder and actually got the same results. The egg white/meringue powder gives this drink a little froth and foam. If you like Orange Julius', then you'll love this!
