Home Made Tortillas

That's right folks, I am now into making my very own tortillas!  And can I say they are DELICIOUS!  Like, super delicious!

Philip and I get loads of recipes from our "buddy" Chef John over at  He is the man!  All his recipes are video blogs so you can actually watch him make the foods you are attempting.  I highly recommend his blog.  I'll post my pictures here and you can jump over to his site to get the recipe.  Enjoy!

And you're done!  Yummy!

Homemade Pudding

I just tried a simple little pudding recipe from my Real Simple magazine and wanted to share. Very easy and you probably have everything on hand (except agave nectar, but I don't think it's even necessary).

1 cup milk
3 Tbs agave syrup
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (for flavour)
A pinch of salt

Chia seeds expand when wet. Cover your jar and shake. My magazine suggests to chill for 20 mins and serve with fruit, but I suggest to even leave it over night to give the seeds plenty of time to expand.  And that's it!  All done!  I'm going to use raspberries and they were delicious!
