Homemade Tortillas are always better than boughten

Making tortillas are easy. My 7 y/o daughter makes them by herself. No she does not just open the package and heat them in the microwave, she makes them from real ingredients all by herself without further instruction. Not only do we use the tortillas for Mexican food but fresh tortillas are great for wraps like roast turkey or roast beef. Making your own you know and control what is in them; fresh wholesome ingredients.

Perfect pancakes

Lots of people have ideas about pancakes. Here is a great recipe for beautiful tasty pancakes.

1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1tsp salt
1 Tbl sugar
1 egg
1 cup of 1/2 & 1/2

Mix a bit, a few lumps are okay. Then let rest. I use a food saver vacuum lid to let the batter rest under a vacuum.
