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!

Roasted Beet and Asian Pear Salad

A lovely light dressing compliments the sweet beets, crisp Asian pear and creamy goat cheese.

5 medium sized beets
1 Asian pear, diced
1/4 cup dried cranberries
2 tbsps light olive oil
1 1/2 tbsps balsamic vinegar
2 tbsps cranberry juice
1 tbsp orange juice
1/4 tsp salt
4 oz crumbled goat cheese
2 tbsps fresh chopped parsley
salad greens

Wash and scrub the beets with a vegetable brush, then wrap in foil and roast at 425°F for 45-50 minutes or until a fork pierces the beet easily. Unwrap and let cool. Peel and dice. Add the pear and cranberries. Whisk the olive oil, balsamic, cranberry juice, orange juice and salt and toss together with the beets, pear and cranberries. Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight.

When ready to serve take the salad out of the fridge for 30 minutes, then add some greens to a plate and a nice helping of the salad. Sprinkle on some goat cheese and top with fresh chopped parsley.

Serves as a side, 6-8 people
