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!

IT Guy and I were in AZ a while ago and one thing I did when I was there, was to do through all of my mother-in-law's recipes. For someone who's not a big fan of cooking, she sure had a LOT. It was so fun to see the recipes she'd cut out of magazines and newspapers....to see what appealed to her. But the one thing I enjoyed the most, was seeing the recipes she had hand written or typed out because I knew they must have been extra special for her to take the time to do that. Here's one that I knew I wanted to try the minute I saw it. Peach cobbler....because who doesn't love that, right?
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
4 cups peaches (fresh, frozen or canned)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 cup butter
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine the 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in the milk and set aside.
In a medium saucepan, combine the peaches, lemon juice, 2/3 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon of flour and the cinnamon.
Stir to combine ingredients and heat to just under boiling.
Melt butter and pour into the prepared 9x13 inch pan.
Pour heated fruit mixture over butter.
Pour batter mixture over fruit in pan.
Bake for 1 hour until golden brown on top.
