Whole Wheat Tortilla

Whole Wheat Tortilla

Let’s do this! Today you’re going to make homemade whole wheat flour tortillas and you will love it! It’s simple, anybody can do it! It’s so much better than anything you’ve ever bought at the store. I make this 3 or 4 times a month, because we really love tacos at my house. This is the best whole wheat tortilla recipe I’ve ever made, and I have experimented with quite a few. It’s 5 simple ingredients and about 1 hour of your day between making the dough, resting it, rolling and cooking, which isn’t bad at all. Even faster if you have a tortilla press. You can find some really cheap ones on amazon, around 12 dollars! A bargain! I usually roll mine out by hand. I like the rustic look and shape, it screams homemade. About the flour, this recipe I bring to you today calls for 100% whole wheat, but you can sub any or all of the flour for all-purpose. I do like to combine both sometimes because it gives the tortilla a nice color. But you do you, my friend. Use whatever flour suits you. It will be delicious, regardless! These tortillas will keep for a few days in the fridge, well covered in plastic. If we have any leftovers, I like to cut them into triangles and bake them or even fry them, if I’m feeling particularly naughty with my calorie consumption. But that’s once in a blue moon, they are really delicious simply baked. Cut them into triangles, mix them with a splash of olive oil, a sprinkle of salt, pepper, paprika, garlic...
Honey Garlic Chicken Thighs

Honey Garlic Chicken Thighs

You guys, I love chicken! I think it gets a bad rap because it doesn’t have a ton of flavor, but I think that’s one of its best qualities! You can season this high protein and rather inexpensive meat any way you like it! I’ll admit, it did take me a while to learn how to cook chicken without drying it out but since then I’ve never looked back! What are some of your favorite chicken recipes?   For my birthday a few years ago, my sweet husband got me a cookbook that is based off of one of my favorite book series. It’s called the Mitford Cookbook and Kitchen Reader and is so much fun to read through! The Mitford series is amazing too and they always cook up delicious meals in every book and I always imagine myself getting to try the savory treats!   The books are about a little town called Mitford and it focuses on Father Tim who is the local priest. The series is all about living in a small town and the interactions with all the different people. I felt I could relate to the characters super well. The book makes you want to pack up and go live in the quaint little community. Just thinking about it makes me want to go reread the series! Seriously, you’ve got to go read it! Back to this recipe, it may not be fried but it sure is delicious and super simple! The smell coming from the crockpot is amazing and both my husband and I love eating chicken this way.

Pork Taco Recipe

Pork Taco Recipe

The first time I made these tacos, I got the idea from a friend that was trying to come up with a recipe himself for Tacos Al Pastor for the restaurant where he works. He is mexican and uses an authentic method. I was looking for something simpler. I wanted an easy pork tacos recipe for my son’s birthday party. I needed something simple because I was cooking all the food by myself and I already had so much going on. I had a salad bar with homemade croutons and dressings (of course, 4 different types of dressings). I had a taco bar, with three different types of taco meats and all the fixings, beans, salsas and sauces. (I also love mango tacos.) I also had a hot bar with homemade croissants, eggplant lasagna, homemade mini pizzas and mini tartlets, prosciutto and asparagus appetizers with homemade puff pastry (yes, you get it, I like to make things from scratch). Plus the dessert bar, brazilian fudge balls (brigadeiros) in 4 different flavors, mini key lime pies, pecan pies, strawberry and custard filled cupcakes and of course, the cake! So you get the point, I was swamped with a lot of cooking to do. I came up with this slow cooker pork tacos recipe because it’s just so easy to just turn it on and go about your business, come back a few hours later and the food is ready! Plus, the slow cooker is the best for cooking shredded pork, in my humble opinion. I use a few elements of the Tacos Al Pastor recipe here. The pineapple, the orange...
