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!

Cranberry Almond Orange Crunch

Cranberries and orange just scream Thanksgiving to me. I love that combo! So when I bought something similar to this from my granddaughter's girl scout troop, I knew I'd go broke buying it so I set about making my own. This stuff is stinkin' good! This is the kind of thing you leave out on your counter and nibble at as you walk by then realize you've nibbled the whole thing away and it's time to make more. So you make more then snack on it until it's gone and the vicious cycle begins. Worth it? Definitely yes...worth every bite!

Cranberry Almond Orange Crunch



2 cups whole almonds
1 cup dried cranberries (I used Craisins)
1 cup sugar
1 egg white
Juice from 1/2 an orange
Zest from 1 orange

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spray a rimmed cookie sheet with baking spray or line with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, whip the egg white with the orange juice and orange zest.

Add the almond and dried cranberries and stir to coat.

Sprinkle the sugar over the almond mixture and toss to coat.

Spread mixture onto prepared pan.

Bake for 1 hour, tossing every 15 minutes.

Cool. Enjoy!
