As the year of handmade plods along, I am finding the idea of making stuff I'd usually buy creeping into unexpected places - like my dinner table.
My kiddo is a picky, picky eater. One thing she will eat with gusto are quesadillas (which she calls tacatillos - one of my new favorite words). As I reached for yet another package of store bought tortillas I saw how many strange ingredients and preservatives were listed on the package. I remembered hearing how easy tortillas were to make so I put the package back, and vowed to give it a try.
Guess what? They were easy, delicious, and so satisfying to make - only 5 ingredients, all of which I had on hand. Mine (above) were not perfectly round, but they tasted delicious. I used this recipe - I used vegetable shortening instead of lard, and they were still tasty.
Yay for handmade food!
