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!

Bacon Ranch Cheddar Hot Dip

Easy and yummy...yummy and easy. That's what this dip is. Or was. We ate it pretty fast. I like having things like this around for the two of us because IT Guy is a big snacker in the evening and I like to join in the fun while we're watching TV. This doesn't make a ton but would be great a party for everyone to have a small taste. Ha! Yeah...good luck with THAT! But it's super good no matter who you serve it to....or don't serve it too. Find a good hiding place in your fridge for the leftovers!
