mmmm... tortillas...

Jeff and I have been trying to eat all (or mostly) natural for the past month, and so we have been cooking/baking much more than we used to... which means experimenting and trying a lot of new recipes. I really wanted to learn to make flour tortillas and to use a recipe that didn't use a ton of lard but still tasted good. I found this recipe... it is so easy and the tortillas are delicious... highly recommended! Not only do they taste great, Jeff loves them, which makes the hard work even more worth it.

mix ingredients, knead dough, and allow to rest...
