Brownie Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2013
Awesome frosting, so thick and fudgy! Just like grandma used to make. Blended seemlessly with the brownies. It took longer than expected to bring the mixture to a full rolling boil, and I had to bring it up to medium high heat. (7/10 on my electric stove). I can't see making brownies without this ever again.

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2013
This is a pretty good tortilla recipe, it totally worked for me. I substituted vegetable shortening on account of a lack of lard, and the logistics of it worked fine, though you could notice a slight difference in taste. Rolling them out was a lot of worked, and achieving a round shape proved near impossible, but oh well, they're still tasty and soft and I'm proud to say I made them. Definitely will make this again.

Chef John's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2013
I got this recipe to work, but not without its fair share of trial and error. The dough recipe itself is alright, if not a tad on the salty side. But you know in step 8 where it says to pat them into rounds an inch thick? That's , flatten those puppies until they're pancakes and then some, because the shape they are when you put them in the pan is they shape they'll come off in. Mine didn't puff up at all. Also, I don't know what you're stove is like, but at "medium high" heat, my stove burned it in 2 minutes. I wound up cooking them at the 3/10 setting. To figure those two things out, I sacrificed a quarter of my yield. I also highly doubt that the half hour wait in step 7 and the 5 minute wait in step 8 are at all necessary. To be fair, I'll admit that I mixed the dough by hand, due to my lack of an electric mixer, but I doubt that made a difference. This recipe is workable, but for much more consistent results with less effort I'd recommend cooking them in the oven, which is something I've done in the past with greater success.
