Tortillas de Harina / Flour tortillas
Tortillas de Harina Flour Tortillas (wheat)(this are NOT to be confused with CORN tortillas. Corn tortillas are made with MASECA, this are made with plain wheat flour, or you can use whole wheat also. Flour tortillas are rolled with a rolling pin, NOT pressed with a tortilla press) These tortillas are great for quesadillas or burritos (I guess you could even do “wraps” with them, as long as you use them warm, otherwise they’re not very flexible). They are moist and buttery, and even if they don’t come out perfectly round (mine never do!) revisions/comments in red (makes about 35 tortillas about 6 inches in diameter) 1 kilogram of Flour (all purpose OR whole wheat) + 1 cup for rolling surface (=2.2 lbs, OR 8 cups) 1 1/2 cup vegetable oil (I used oil because it was easy to find in a Swiss supermarket. Eat them warm with butter, avocado, queso, or refired beans, but to freeze or refrigerate, make sure you cool them spread out on a flat surface before bagging them. Related:  Recipes

Naturally Flavored Water Say goodbye to soda, juice, and bottled water with these refreshing, healthy flavors! I'm keeping 2-3 flavors of this "spa water" in my fridge now, so I have a variety to motivate me to drink more water. I was a hardcore Dr. Pepper girl for years. Then I gave up regular soda because of the high sugar content and switched to diet soda. Next we were warned to avoid the chemicals in diet soda; and more recently studies have indicated that diet soda actually causes rather than prevents weight gain (source). Simply water At the end of the day, regular old tap water--or at least a filtered version of it--seems to be the way to go. Aside from my morning coffee, I honestly forget to drink fluids throughout the day. Subtle flavor without sweetnessThese aren't sweet waters, so they'll be disappointing if that's what you're expecting.

No Christmas is complete without Eggnog - St. Louis restaurant ‘Tis the season once again to spread the holiday cheer and one great way to do that is to invite a bunch of people over to gather ‘round a huge bowl of eggnog. I wasn’t always a fan of eggnog until I made it one year for a company Christmas party. I find a good trick to liking something is to take it and make it your own. 1 dozen eggs, separated (yes, this means putting the yolks into one bowl and the whites into another) ½ teaspoon salt 1 quart of milk 2 ¼ or more cups sugar 2 tablespoons vanilla 2 or more cups of bourbon 3 pints heavy whipping cream ½ cup of rum Nutmeg Beat together the egg yolks and salt in a large mixing bowl, slowly adding 1 ½ cups of sugar. Be sure to refrigerate it before serving. From my family to yours have a happy and safe holiday! For more info: The Fannie Farmer Cookbook

Tide and Thyme » Fresh Flour Tortillas We blow through A LOT of tortillas in this house. Flour, whole wheat, corn – we love them all! I’ve heard stories of how much better fresh tortillas are, versus the ones you buy pre-packaged in the store. They turned out wonderful! Flour Tortillas 3 cups all-purpose flour2 tsp baking powder1 heaping tsp salt5 tablespoons shortening, lard, or softened butter 3/4 – 1 cup warm water Pulse the flour, baking powder, and salt a few times in your food processor fitted with the dough blade. With the food processor on, slowly stream in the water, just until the dry ingredients form a ball and starts traveling around the bowl (you might not use all of the water or you might need a little more). Let the dough knead for ~30 seconds. Turn out onto a flour-dusted surface and divide dough into golf-ball sized portions (I weighed mine out to 2 oz each). Heat a large, dry frying pan over medium high heat. Source: Confections of a Foodie Bride, via Annie’s Eats and Pennies on a Platter Od 16. avgusta do 1. septembra 2012. godine održan je 68.

How to make a Naked Egg : Imagination Station How to make a Naked Egg A “naked egg” is an egg that has no shell. Let me say that again, an egg with no shell. This is not something you normally run across and even when I show a naked egg to someone they often just don’t get the idea that the shell is gone – yet the egg stays intact. The shell of an egg (typically a chicken egg) is made up of primarily calcium carbonate. CaCO3 (s) + 2 HC2H3O2 (aq) → Ca(C2H3O2)2 (aq) + H2O (l) + CO2 (g) The egg insides remain intact and are held together by the two fragile membranes just inside the shell. Here’s what you need Let’s get to the fun stuff. Vinegar (at least 16 ounces)A couple of glasses or cupsRaw eggs The process is really very simple. An egg soaking in vinegar with part of it’s shell dissolved. Now the hard part – you will have to wait as the acetic acid in the vinegar begins to react with the calcium in the egg shell. After a day of soaking you can carefully remove the egg from the vinegar. Fun things to do with your naked eggs References

Chocolate peppermint French macarons - the homesteady I'm not gonna lie and say I didn't fist-pump like crazy when these beauts came out of the oven. Zer-o cracks! Zer-o cracks! I chanted to Samson. I made these particular ones when my pals came from Boston for Bag Day -- 50% because I knew they'd be delicious (they are) and 50% because the crushed candy cane around the cookie's perimeter adds a special Pinterest-worthy pretty factor. Peppermint Almond Cookies: This recipe is my version of the one Mindy Cone shares in the Atly French macaron class (which I can't recommend highly enough). 95g aged egg whites at room tempPinch of cream of tartar35g superfine sugar120g almond flour200g powdered sugarA few drops of peppermint oil (Optional, but do not try to use peppermint extract, it's too watery!) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
