Naan

For the most part, I have had a lot of luck with bread recipes.  If it does not work out the way I want on the first try I begin the tweaking process.  It is not always fast but I get there in the end.  I say for the most part because I have had one bread nemesis.  One bread that, no matter how I tried, would never work out the way I wanted.   That bread was the delicious Indian flat bread called naan. Naan is my nemesis no longer. ...

Cream Filling for Cupcakes

This recipe is not specifically for cupcakes, but it is REALLY good in cupcakes. I found a recipe on the most excellent blog Nosh With Me for Oatmeal Cream Pies.  I loved those plastic wrapped cookie sandwiches when I was a child so I knew I had to try them.  The pies were good, but it was the filling that grabbed my attention.  I wondered, how it would work if piped into the center of a cupcake?  So, I tried it out. If you like those...

Flour Tortillas

When I was growing up in South Texas we had this neighbor who would, on Saturday afternoons, make her tortillas for the week.  Believe me, I made friends with her children so I could make myself available for tortilla day.  I think she enjoyed my enthusiasm and always had a few extra tortillas for me to take home.  They were sublime!  My family would fight over them, and no matter how many she sent home with me they were always gone...
