flour tortillas White bread was forbidden in my household as a child. We only ate whole-grain bread, the coarser, tougher and browner the better. I hated it. There was, however, an exception to the no-white-flour rule: flour tortillas. I should prefer corn tortillas over flour—they have more depth of flavor and are a better complement to most Tex-Mex ingredients. I’ve mentioned before my failed quest to make homemade flour tortillas. I’m not a quitter, but recently, after a few more wrong-tasting batches, I was ready to give my obsession a rest. So how were they? Purists may sniff at the recipe and argue that leaven and lack of lard make these inauthentic. I am so in love with these tortillas that I found myself just staring at them with a silly grin plastered on my face, amazed at what I had made. Method: Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and oil.

The ultimate sweet and sour ribs Bee Hive Journal - Help and advice for beekeepers Red Velvet Cake Balls I first tasted these two years ago at a Christmas party and immediately had to have the recipe. It’s based on a mix, but I imagine you can follow the same directions substituting from scratch cake and frosting (I’ll try that one day). You can also try it with other cake combinations. Red Velvet Cake Balls1 box red velvet cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)1 can cream cheese frosting (16 oz.)1 package chocolate bark (regular or white chocolate)wax paper 1. I also only melt a few pieces of chocolate bark at a time because it starts to cool and thicken. Want to see how good they look in white chocolate?

Banana Coconut Cupcakes With Creme Fraiche Frosting And Coconut Caramel Sauce | The Sweetest Kitchen A big thank you goes out to Cupcakes Take The Cake , where Rachel linked to my latest cupcake creation on Flickr, banana coconut cupcakes with creme fraiche frosting and coconut caramel sauce. I thought I’d better get the recipe for these awesome cupcakes on my blog so that all the visitors from CTTC can make these for themselves. First of all, let me say that I’ve been planning these cupcakes for weeks. It all started when I made the coconut pancakes with bananas, creme fraiche and caramel sauce last month, which was a recipe from Valli Little in delicious. magazine. I loved those pancakes. The combination of those flavors was like nothing else my tastebuds have ever experienced (probably mostly because I had never eaten creme fraiche!). Over the past week I finally made up my mind as to how I would make these cupcakes. The assembly was easy. I’m very pleased with how these turned out. Don’t despair though, you can make your own creme fraiche. Anyway, here are the recipes, enjoy!

Whole Wheat Pancakes {New and Improved} Healthy, low-fat, whole wheat pancakes that are light and fluffy! Well this is a first, I completely re-wrote my original recipe. I hope this doesn't create any confusion but after getting a few comments that my original recipe was a little thin, I re-made them and had the same results. I want every recipe on Skinnytaste to be GREAT so I went back to the drawing board, and made batches and batches of whole wheat pancakes until I felt it was everything a whole wheat pancake should be; fluffy, low-fat, and tasty! My original recipe called for oil and egg whites, I found using the whole eggs and eliminating the oil worked out much better, and reduced the points as well. Because these pancakes are high in fiber, they leave you feeling full and satisfied throughout the day. You can add blueberries or chocolate chips to them when you add the batter to the skillet or serve them with your favorite syrup. Ingredients: Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Heat a large skillet on medium heat.

BBC Radio 2 - Simon Mayo Drivetime, Foodie Thursday Modern Beekeeping USA - Quality Beekeeping Supplies Taste and Tell: Coconut Cupcakes Things here in the Taste and Tell household are changing. The baby is not even here yet – still 3 more months – but life is already different. The company I have been working for for the last almost 4 years has been struggling a bit because of the falling stock market. I won’t get into details because really, food=exciting, stock market=boring, but as of about a week and a half ago, I am officially unemployed. So what kind of changes does that mean for my food blog here? What does this all have to do with these cupcakes? I took the recipe for Ina’s Coconut Cake, and combined it with the recipe for her Coconut Cupcakes. These cupcakes were anything but dry. Now I’m just going to have to figure out who to pawn my baked goods off to so that I don’t eat them all!! Coconut Cupcakesadapted from Barefoot Contessa at Home makes about 36 cupcakes Preheat the oven to 350F. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Fill the lined cupcake pans 3/4 full.

Frittata recipe with greens, feta, and dill Photo by L. V. Anderson Eating eggs for dinner is a time-honored ritual for the cash-strapped, the harried, the exhausted, and the lazy. L.V. Follow I’m not talking about quiche, which requires crust, cream, and 45 more minutes than you may have to spare on a weeknight. I’m talking about frittatas, which are like quiche without the crust or omelettes without the spatula handiwork. Sturdy greens, like collards or kale, are the ideal base for a frittata. Assuming you want cheese (and I’m assuming you want cheese), feta is my favorite for frittatas. Greens and Feta Frittata Yield: 2 or 3 main-course servings Time: 45 minutes 1½ pounds collard greens or kale Salt 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 large yellow onion, chopped 3 garlic cloves, minced Black pepper 6 large eggs 3 ounces feta cheese, crumbled ¼ cup chopped fresh dill or 2 teaspoons dried dill weed 1. 2. 3.
