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!

Onion Dip

Not every recipe I make is loved by all. I get that. Not even in my own family. There’s a dip that I make that IT Guy loves. LOVES. I could make it every week and he’d be happy. But sometimes I like to switch things up and make other things. Like this onion dip. I went out with a bunch of my girlfriends the other night and we ordered a couple of trio appetizers and one of the things was an onion dip. It was really good so I thought...yep....I’m gonna make this. How hard can it be? Turns out, not so much. So I made it and loved it. #1 Son was all about it. So when IT Guy got home from work I served him some and he didn’t like it. At all. He said he had his mouth all ready for the OTHER dip even though he knew this was different so he couldn’t eat it. What a weirdo. But I’m here to tell you that this dip is good. Don’t listen to IT Guy. What does he know?
