Tortilla Update

Made a new batch adding 1/2 cup of finely chopped parsley- really good, and so pretty!
You could add it to the water and put in the blender to make "green" tortillas, but I added the parsley directly to the flour, and then added the warm water. Also, increase the water to 1 1/2 cups, adding extra as needed.
If using a tortilla press (as I do) make sure not to press so thin that the edges become papery, else they will be hard to remove from the plastic ziploc bag (which works best).

I just had to tell someone...

I bought my husband a Rubiks Cube for Christmas- I know, I know, big spender huh?- and proceeded to become obsessed with it myself!

I am happy to announce that:


(the question of course is can I repeat my success?? Time will tell...)

Update: Success has been repeated!! Woo Hoo!

Happy New Year!!

It is 2008- wow.
Getting off to a great start, I made GF tortillas yesterday, using my new tortilla press!
They turned out WONDERFULLY- great flavour, and great consistency.
Here is the link to the recipe I use:

These could also be kicked up a notch by adding fresh herbs, or a hint of cayenne pepper. I kept mine plain to keep the family (ie: the kids) happy!

Filled them with chicken strips, shredded cheddar, lettuce, salsa, sauteed mushrooms and a dash of hot sauce. As I said, wonderfull!!
