Okay so I am trying to think of new ways to get my face out there in the world…yikes 😉

So I started to make videos, some will be product tests and some will be recipes.

This is just in the beginning stages, I only have a iPhone and my computer, but I am trying to make them better and better, sometimes I just laugh at myself when I watch them back :p LOL

But you have to start somewhere right, I will get better and its okay if you laugh I will not mind 😛

So here is the first one I did so check out I hope you enjoy it!!

FYI – I have already changed few things from this first video like I said it is a work in progress 🙂

You either like beets or you don’t there is no in between!! 🙂

I don’t like beets…well okay maybe if they are “Amish Wedding” Pickled Baby Beets…then yes I like those 😛

But that’s it on the “Red” ones…I do on the other hand like the “Golden” beets 🙂

Golden beets are a little less sweet, more mellow and less earthy.

These chips were so easy to make and Delicious but you must keep an eye on them as they will burn very quickly!!
But I like those little burnt edges 🙂

Golden Beets
Olive oil
Salt
Pepper
Paprika

Peel and slice your beets, use a mandolin if you have one.
Place in a medium bowl, drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika.
Toss to coat all the beet slices.

Arrange on a baking sheet in single layer, bake at 375 degrees, after 15 minutes you need to flip them, check that small rounds are not burning.  Continue to bake until they are crispy, about 15 minutes more.

When I first made them I baked them at 400, I would go to 375 or even 350, flipping them at 15 minutes and continue to bake until crispy.

Let them cool and Enjoy.

Enjoy!! Them 🙂
