Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
I have been making tortillas for years and the recipe is by far the best. I didn't have lard and so I used butter. It worked out just fine. So soft and perfect!!!

Perfect Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
This turkey recipe was the BEST! Since we have such a big family we made 6 turkeys. So as you would imagine, I was able to tweak the recipe a bit. We soaked ours in the brine for 2 nights, skipped the veggies inside; all except for the onion. We kept that. I also added a few extra bay leaves, and used a heaping teaspoon of dried thyme. We needed a little extra gravy so we used 2 cups of wine for the last 2 turkeys. Plus I turned it over at the half way mark, it was easier; then I took a stick of butter and melted it over the whole turkey that was exposed. I couldn't believe that we cooked the whole thing uncovered, but it was a perfect golden brown. This is definitely going to be the recipe for out family, we all LOVED it!

Mongolian Beef II

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2006
This is a wonderful recipe, my sister and I have both cooked this many times...we usually double the recipe, but still stick to the 2 pounds of beef. There is so much meat with 2 pounds that with 4 there would just be too much. Plus in my house we add a head of fresh broccoli, fresh mushrooms, and a few pea pods for some extra greens. It adds a little more freshness, to a already wonderful dish.
