Chef John's Flour Tortillas
Tried these this morning with poor results. I believe the problem is that the pan was too hot. I got lovely big bubbles, but they burned way before 1 minute. They came out like Naan bread, not tortillas. I tried cooking them for less time, flipping them several good. The last few I lowered the heat to Low, and they came out way better. They really need to be cooked on low heat and only until they're golden. I will try again.

Fluffy Pancakes
I should have gone with my instincts and not added 1 Tablespoon of baking powder. 2 teaspoons would have been more than enough, I think. Fortunately, I knew enough not to add the salt.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers
Just tried this recipe with a few recommended adjustments ie: added 2 eggs and 1 cup bread crumbs. I also added cooked spinach, mushrooms and about 3/4 cup parmesean cheese. Absolutely fabulous!! I'm looking forward to trying this recipe with blue cheese. This is a real keeper!!
