I was one of those little kids who loved beets. Mashed winter squash I couldn’t stomach as a child but I’d have second helpings of boiled beets with supper. That’s why I couldn’t resist the Chocolate Beet Sheet Cake recipe in the new cookbook, Brown Eggs and Jam Jars.
Written by the author of the popular food blog, Simple Bites, Brown Eggs and Jam Jars is part cookbook, part food journal, with recipes punctuated by “Homesteading” essays about the author’s backyard sugar bush, laying hens and kitchen gardens. It’s about how you can get back to the land in suburbia, with young kids firmly in tow.
