Homemade Flour Tortillas
Tried this recipe for the first time and it came out good, not great, but pretty good. I added 3 tablespoons of vegetable shortening instead of lard. Using hot water helped with elasticity. Overall very tasty, my husband was very pleased. My hardest part is rolling them into actual circles.

Maria's Paella
First time making paella, but made a few changes. I added about a pound of chicken breast tenders instead, hubby didn't want any bones. Instead of using water I used chicken broth and reduced the amount from 6 cups to 4 cups. I saw in a another recipe to add a bay leaf and i did. Definitely brought together the flavors. Last but not least i added large cooked shrimp and fully cooked mussels. AMazing we usually pay $45 at a local restaurant for this and now we can just make it ourselves. Overall great recipe. Hope this helps!!

Thai Red Chicken Curry
There's a little mom and pop place in Dallas, Tx called "Tukta Thai" and they have the best red curry chicken. I use that as a basis for making my own. Instead of using olive oil, use sesame oil and it does not hurt to gently sprinkle some salt and pepper on the chicken. For the veggies I used FRESH green beans, zucchini, carrots, and red or green bell peppers. The missing ingredient here are bamboo shoots. It is a must it makes all the difference. I added fish sauce and 2 tablespoons of sugar. If you like spicy just add pepper flakes and cayenne pepper to taste. Also, i added like 3 tablespoons of the curry paste. I have been playing with the recipe and it finally taste like the one from the restaurant, my hubby was in love. Personally there really is NO need for the cornstarch. End result will be 5 STARS!!!!
