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!

Peach Dumplings

Apple desserts are not at the top of my list. They're tasty and all that....but just not my favorite. But peaches? Give me peach over apple any day of the week! So this quick and easy dessert is at the top of my list! And SO simple! Of course you can use apples if you want....but the peaches make me happy! Double the recipe if you want but just like it is, it makes 8 dumplings...the perfect amount for a little family!

2 ripe peaches ~ cut into quarters (8 pieces total)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 stick butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cup lemon-lime soda (I used Sprite)
