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!

Roasted Potatoes with Bergamot

Bergamot the flower, not the citrus fruit.

2 cubes duck fat and/or olive oil
5 or 6 potatoes, quartered
dash of balsamic vinegar
onion powder
salt and pepper
a sprinkling of bergamot (bee balm) petals

Two cubes of duck fat refers to the duck fat ice cubes I keep in the freezer.  Each cube is about 1 - 1  1/2 tbsps of duck fat that I saved from the last duck I cooked. Once defrosted, I mixed the duck fat with a little olive oil, balsamic vinegar and the seasonings.
Toss with the potatoes and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet. Sprinkle more paprika and distribute the bergamot petals over top.

Roast in a 425 F oven for 45 minutes and enjoy the subtle taste of the bergamot.
