After streamlining a few things, I've finally come back to my blog. Here I hope to keep up with foodie postings a bit better. I've redesigned a few things, and hope you enjoy the new layout. I do aim to please some of the time ;) and would like to know what YOU want to see here. Any recipe requests? Got a recipe you can't figure out how to get it to work, or a technique you'd like help with, let me know in the comments or over on my facebook page and I'll do my best to answer in a post.
Homemade tortillas and the taco filling, turns out it IS a 30 minute meal! Tortillas: 2 cups of flour (AP or whole wheat) 2 tsp of salt 2 tablespoons of solid fat (lard is traditional, but I've also used butter, coconut oil would work as well) 3/4 cup of warm liquid (milk, whey, water) incorporate salt into flour, then cut in your fat, add milk and knea on floured surface till comes together relatively smooth form a ball and rest 10-20 mins (this is when I prepped and started my filling on the stove) preheat a griddle or dry cast iron skillet pull several bouncy ball size rounds and roll each very thin, they'll puff on the heated surface cook on the griddle till puffed, and flip to brown both sides keep warm and serve with your favorite Mexican/texmex dish
