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 love any kind of sweet roll type things. And when I can make them with frozen bread dough....I'm a happy girl. There's a reason they sell frozen bread dough, people! It's there...use it! Of course there's a time and place for a homemade yeast dough...but if I can use frozen bread dough to save myself a little time, then I'm gonna do it! These babies are goooooood!!
