I'm Stephanie, and I just found this website yesterday while Googling for what beets taste like (yep, I've never had a beet!)

I'm a single mother who is passionate about living a healthy lifestyle (on a budget!) and finding new ways to make healthy meet tasty. I figured a cooking forum would be a good place to start! My other passions are macro photography and exotic animals - my daughter and I keep them as pets and breed them.

Looking forward to browsing around and getting hungry

Hi Stephanie and welcome to DC. Some describe beets as having an earthy flavor. I love beets. The smaller beets will have less of an "earthy" flavor. Golden beets also have a milder flavor but are usually more expensive (unless you plant your own).
