Balsamic-Roasted Red Potatoes

I went to the Baltimore Farmers' Market today and it was awesome, as always. The farms are producing so many great fruits and veggies right now, not to mention all of the bread, cheeses, hummus, etc. If you live in Maryland, I highly urge you to check out the closest Farmers' Market to you using this website. If you're outside of Maryland, you can look up your own local markets here. Even highly urban areas usually have markets that showcase the surrounding agricultural areas. The markets are great for picking up old favorites (like the potatoes that I use in the recipe below) or buying new fruits and veggies for an experience. If you've recently picked up awesome new produce and want to request that I make a recipe using it, leave me a message in the comment section.

This recipe was originally found at The Baking Beauties website, and can serve about two people.
