I find that what recipes say compared to reality is often quite different Cheesy  On numerous trips to Mexico I've watched people make tortillas and have come to the conclusion that you probly need to make hundreds a day to have "the touch"  It could be just me though, I have issues with any kind of dough....but will keep trying

There are some fabulous recipes on this thread, I'm itching to bust out the quinoa now Smiley

Quinoa has become my favorite grain ever...Grin  I will have to try the quiches, only I probably will not put ham in mine..maybe shitake mushrooms instead!

I do not use gelatin in my crockpot yogurt...I don't mind it a bit runny, especially in summer...I use it a lot to make fruit smoothies...cheesec loth works really well, and it also gets firmer as it gets "older"...I usually use the old yogurt to start the new yogurt...I think my original yogurt starter is about two or three years old...

edelc--do you like tamales?  It is made with corn flour and they are a lot easier to make than tortillas...I use a corn/bean/rice mix for the inside, but you can use chicken or beef as well...

I definitely am going to get cauliflower this weekend...those poppers look like the perfect snack for my need of crunchy salty snacks!

There's something I used to make on Weight Watchers Core that I can't remember the name of...similar to a corn tortilla but much thicker. You basically mixed cornmeal (not masa flour, but fine or medium corn meal) with a bit of water and maybe salt and put it in your fry pan and cooked it for quite a while on very low heat until it's browned on both sides, flipping occasionally. It was so good to put whatever filling in you wanted.

I have a tortilla press but haven't used it much. I actually got it off of ebay. Next time I make tortillas I am using Alton Brown's recipes and method since I recently watched his tortilla show. I love that man.

that sounds like a johnny cake Mare.  I'll have to see if I can find Alton's tortilla method somewhere. 

And yes edel you should try a tamale, a bit time consuming but really yummy!  I do a green chili chicken for the inside of them.

hmm I thought there were more ingredients in johnny cakes for some reason. This one has a Spanish name. I left a note in the Yahoo group I originally found it in and have been combing their files trying to find it.

I've got my cauliflower poppers in the oven, I can't wait!  I add a couple tablespoons of parmesan to the mix, too.

So my friend shared an AWESOME guilt-free treat idea yesterday, and I knew I just had to pass it on to you guys.

Peel a banana. Freeze the banana. Blend. = Awesome banana "ice cream"

She said it has the same consistency of ice cream, but the only thing in it is banana! I haven't tried it myself yet, but I think I'm just going to have to.

Yah, it's good! The only thing bad that happened when I made it was that it wouldn't blend well (maybe it was the food processor I used, or the fact that the bananas were in the freezer for weeks). But, I added some peanut butter and that made it fantastic!

The kids beg me for banana "ice cream" all the time, lol. They know it's just banana but they find it totally irresistable. I have a single auger type juicer that homogenizes stuff (so I can make nut butter, bean paste, etc) that I use for this. I've tried all kinds of frozen fruit and it all turns out like perfect soft serve with this machine. Good thing too, I absolutely loathe all things banana myself.
I also make a chocolate sauce to drizzle over top, it's just melted coconut oil, maple syrup and cocoa powder. I served this at one of the kid's bday parties and Everybody thought it was really ice cream, lol. Gotta love that.

We all prefer thicker yogurt but I was thinking we could make lassi with the thinner consistency stuff that comes out of the crock pot. Have you had it? I would leave out the sugar myself, I find it sweet enough with just the fruit. Here's a recipe for mango lassi.

This is similar to the juicer I've got, it's awesome for juicing greens too.

So I made the cauliflower poppers, but the recipe called for, in my opinion, too much salt.  They were very good, but next time, I'll definitely cut back on the salt.  The problem may have also been that I added a salty cheese...which was a tasty addition.  Next time, I'll keep the cheese and halve the salt.
