I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Caramelized Shallots

Shallots, white onion's milder cousin, are peeled after boiling (so no tears) then roasted to a golden perfection. Lovely alongside roast beef, pork chops or even turkey. They can also be made a few days ahead of time.

12 oz (340g) pkg dry shallots
2 tbsps semi salted butter
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
pinch of sugar
fresh parsley to garnish

To peel the shallots, drop them into a pot of boiling water for 1 minute then drain. Just slice off the root and stem ends and slip the rest of the peel right off.

Melt butter in a skillet and brown shallots on medium heat about 10 minutes.

Remove from heat and add balsamic, salt, pepper and sugar. Toss to coat then into a 400°F oven for 25-30 minutes, turning every 10 minutes.

That's it! Top with fresh parsley and serve.
If made ahead of time (or on the off chance you have leftovers) simply microwave to reheat.
