  1. This was a simple, cheap, and yummy way to prepare some fresh savory beets. I halved the salt amount, and it was still a bit salty though. Next time I will quarter the salt amount. 45 minutes roasting at 400 worked out perfectly for me, and everything was nice and carmelized:) Thank you for sharing! I will definitely be repeating this recipe again.
  2. This was a nice switch from the way I usually prepare beets. Liked the vinegar flavor, I left the salt out entirely and it still was great. I had to bake my beets a little longer than was stated, will cut smaller next time, but was in a hurry today.
  3. Very good. Did it without the onions as I didn't have any. Much, much better than plain old boiled beets. The balsamic made a nice glazey coating.
  4. Enjoyed this recipe very much; however the salt should probably be 1 tsp, no t 2.
  5. 123 Hit Wonders 2008 ~ Very nice. I used beets that were already cooked and just cut them up into wedges as I did the onions. The balsamic adds a nice touch.


I'm a stay at home mom with 3 adorable children-an 8 year old daredevil son, a 5 1/2 year old princess and a wild little 2 year old girl! I love to cook, and like having my little helpers in the kitchen! I usually love recipes that are completely from scratch (I still love them actually) but right now my focus is on having any kind of food ready by mealtime! It's a little crazy here lately. Every summer we have a huge organic garden, apple orchard and raspberry and blueberry patches, along with a woods full of wild foods waiting for me to learn what they are so I can collect them. I'm learning about wild mushrooms first, so if anyone has any tips, let me know. We also eat wild venison which my husband and I hunt ourselves. It's our favorite meat, since it's lean, organic and cheap! Some of my hobbies are: hiking, biking, rock climbing, gardening, playing in the water with my kids, or just swinging in the hammock with a good book. I go stir crazy if I spend too much time inside.
