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!

Cinnamon Bun Ice Cream
I had, what I thought, was a brilliant idea the other day. I decided I wanted to make some Cinnamon Bun Ice Cream. To make sure I hadn't lost my marbles, I "googled" cinnamon bun ice cream and discovered I wasn't the only crazy on the planet. I reworked my basic vanilla ice cream recipe to include all the yummies that we enjoy in cinnamon buns. Sooooooooooooo good!!!! You can always leave out the diced cinnamon rolls in this recipe and leave the other stuff and it will be just as delicious...but we thoroughly enjoyed the texture of the rolls in this. Deeeee-lish!!
5 eggs, mixed well
2 cups sugar
Cook and whisk eggs and sugar over double boiler for 10 -15 minutes or until mixture is thick and pale yellow.
When eggs are cooked, remove from heat and pour into your ice cream freezer.
1 can eagle brand condensed milk
1 quart heavy whipping cream
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Mix all ingredients well and pour into ice cream freezer.
1 quart half and half to fill line
Mix according to freezer directions.
Transfer to a large container and add:
2 baked cinnamon rolls ~ diced (I used store bought and scraped off most of the cream cheese icing)
1 cup chopped pecans
1 jar caramel ice cream topping ~ swirled through but not mixed in
