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!

Maple Sweetened Beets

These beets do not have a maple taste, but just lightly sweetened to enhance the natural earthiness of the beets.

4 medium beets
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsps maple syrup
salt and pepper to taste

Start with roasting the beets. Brush them clean then place in a baking pan and cover with foil. Alternatively you could wrap each beet in foil like a baked potato. Roast in a 400°F oven for 1 - 1 1/2 hours until they are easily pierced with a fork. Let cool enough to peel, the peels should pretty much slip right off, then dice them. I made a whole pan of roasted beets but will use just 4 in this recipe.

Once your beets are diced toss them with olive oil, maple syrup, salt and pepper. Place them in a baking pan and dab with butter. Bake at 425°F for 15-30 minutes. Goes well with most any meat.
