Flour Tortillas

The best flour tortillas that I had was in California. They were full of flavour, crispy but still pliable. It was elastic and strong but still kept the filling from spilling out. There are no store bought tortillas (that I have tried) that compare. Because of this tragedy, I decided to make my own. It…

Milk Bread Dinner Rolls

Dinner rolls always add something to the table. I love when they are fresh from the oven. Soft, fluffy and warm! Here is my take on a dinner roll. Like with baking any breads, this does take some time since you do need to let the bread rise twice. Begin the recipe by beating 6…

Rhubarb and Apple Crumble

Rhubarb is one of those beautiful plants you find in many gardens. They have bright red stalks and dark green leaves.  The leaves of the rhubarb are poisonous and cannot be used in baking and cooking. The red stalks are sour and need to be cooked or baked with sugar. My backyard has one rhubarb…

Apple Sour Cream Pound Cake

One thing that I enjoy about my grandma’s house is the fruit trees she has in her back yard.  One thing that I hate is picking all the fruit and trying to figure out what to do with them.  You know … eat it now or eat it later.  I did make apple sauce with…
