Welcome!

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!

Strawberry Cobbler

Cobblers are one of my most favorite things. Cherry and berry are the best, in my opinion. Also...I love peach. I don't think I've ever made a strawberry cobbler before, though. But because I have a huge bag of strawberries to use up...I thought..ehhh..why not? Oh my!!! Where has this been all my life! This lasted practically no time at our house...you'd think these people never get dessert! I think IT Guy had it for breakfast a couple of times, as a matter of fact. Really good and the Bisquick topping makes it super simple! Try it...NOW!

Strawberry Cobbler



4 cups quartered strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1 1/2 cups sugar ~ divided use
