Spiced Baked Beets
Meet the Cook: Especially during fall and winter, this recipe is a favorite. With its red color, it looks great served at Christmastime. It's nice for taking to potlucks as well. My husband and I have two grown children. I teach home economics. -Margery Richmond, Lacombe, Alberta
