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!

White Chocolate Strawberry Cream Pie

You’re not going to believe how yummy this pie is. And the best part is you don’t even have to turn on your oven! Mix a few simple ingredients, slice some strawberries and you’re done. IT Guy spied this in the fridge when he got home from work and could hardly wait to cut into it. This little pie is so pretty with the berries on top drizzled with white chocolate. I’m pretty sure you’re going to love it as much as we do!
