Real Homemade Tamales
Changed a couple of things based on other reviewers comments: 1. Cooked the pork with more garlic and added cumin seeds and ground oregano. Used chicken broth instead of water. 2. Used the cooled and strained broth from cooking the pork to make the masa. Used about 4 cups to make the consistency right. I've made tamales before (mind you from another recipe online because I'm not Mexican at all) and they turned out ok. My fiance is Mexican and whenever I try to make any Mexican dish, he starts to cringe because I simply had no exposure to it. So I attempted this recipe with the above modifications and got rave reviews from my whole family including him!!! And as another reviewer says, it is on the maseca bag for the tamale masa. It helps because you don't have to carry the recipe around with you because it's already going to be in the grocery cart. DEFINITELY will make again (possibly make a bunch and freeze to prepare for my wedding).

San Francisco Sourdough Bread
The first bread I have ever made but do I love it!! Only issue I had was I tried to cut it straight out of the oven and ended up with very dense slices of bread. Need to make sure they cool prior to cutting.
