Well, it is my turn again. Let me know if anyone tried to make the recipe. I want to first thank God, for allowing things to get better within my family. Some of you know that I had family issues with my mom and sister. My sister had been speaking to me for a while now but my mom still had issues with my husband. Well on Mother's day, Adan went ahead and went with me to my moms' and wished her a Happy Mother's Day and ever since then things have been getting better. Sometimes it takes humbleness in our part even though we don't beleive it has been our fault. To God be the Glory.

This week I will post two recipes. If your kids are not really in to eating corn bread, they might like this sweet cornbread recipe.

2 Boxes of Jiffy Cornbread
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1 cup melted butter or margarine

Mix all ingredients with either mixer or whisk. Bake in greased 9x13 pan at 350 for 30-45 minutes (depending on pan).

Famous Tortillas

3 cups bleached flour
2 tsp salt
1/4 cup shortening
approx 1 cup boiling water

Mix flour and salt. Add shortening and mix shortening with your fingers. Add approx 1/4 water into flour. If water is too hot for your fingers, begin mixing it with a teaspoon and begin forming a dough. Continue to add water as needed until you have a medium firm dough. If your dough sticks to your fingers you put too much water and you will not be able to roll it. After your done I let it stand in a plastic bag for at least 15-20 minutes. Form into balls before you roll. If needed add flour as you roll. Cook in comal(tortilla skillet). When cooking, let bubbles rise before flipping tortilla over. Flip over twice or three times. Hint: the comal is hot enough to cook the tortillas when you sprinke water and water turns into tiny circles.

It sounds like lots of work but it really isn't once you get the hang of it.
Tell you all what. We can have a tortilla party with any lady that wants to learn to cook these babies. We can plan any Thursday or Friday evening or Saturday. Bring your flour bag and plastic bowl. When do you all want to do this? Let's get you all ready for when we sell mexican dishes.

Love you all,
