Making Whole Wheat Tortillas

I love whole wheat tortillas and they are so much better for me. Unfortunately in a small town they are so hard to find! So I decided today to try my hand at making my own. It was so easy to do, now it does take a little bit of time and is pretty boring.lol But the results are worth it.

*2 Cups of Whole Wheat Flour
*2 Teaspoons Oil(I use sunflower oil)
*3/4 Cup Warm Water(you can use warm milk instead to make them fluffier
*1/2 Teaspoon Salt
*1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder

Mix in a bowl the flour, salt, and baking powder in a bowl. Add in oil then slowly add water til you get a dough. Now my key was to be as healthy as possible here. You can exchange the oil for lard and water for milk to get a more traditional tortilla. However when I covered these in food I couldn't tell the difference.

After you form a dough cover it and let sit for 10 minutes. Divide into dough balls that are about the size of an egg. Roll your dough out flat, pretty much as flat as you can get it. Of course it all depends how thick you like your tortillas. You may need a little extra flour to keep the dough from sticking to the rolling pin. I used my griddle to cook them up because I can do two at once. Cook on one side till it starts to puff up a bit and then flip. The spots that were fluffy will start to brown slightly :O) then you are done!

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
