Cottage Flour Tortillas

Ingredients: 6 cups of Organic Unbleached Flour
9 Tbsp of coconut oil refrigerated to make it hard.
2 1/4 cup milk
3 tsp Celtic Sea Salt
Directions: Measure out your oil and put it in a bowl in your fridge to firm up.
While waiting measure out 6 cups of organic unbleached flour in a large mixing bowl.
Add Sea Salt and stir.
Remove oil from refrigerator and add to flour mix.

With a pastry knife ( or a fork or two butter knives) cut the fat in.  This means that if you have two knives you will put one in each hand and make a cutting motion with both hands going away from one another.  If you have a pastry knife you will use it and push down and rock it to cut in the cold fat.  If you have a fork, just use the fork to cut in the fat until it looks like this. Little chunks of fat are ok, but not huge icebergs of it.

Next get your milk and add it in.

Work this in and knead until you have a smooth ball of dough.
Cut this ball into 1/4 ths.  Make each fourth into a rectangle and cut into six…

Cheese Enchiladas

Ingredients: 6 Cups Tomato Sauce  3 Teaspoon Paste  1 Teaspoon Spanish Paprika  1/8 Teaspoon Garlic Powder 1/8 Teaspoon Chili Powder  1 Teaspoon Chopped Dry Onions Block of Cheddar or Jack cheese grated  20 Organic Corn Tortillas Coconut Oil 15x10x2 baking dish
Directions: In a sauce pan pour, six cups of tomato sauce to this add 3 teaspoons tomato paste 1/8 teaspoon Spanish paprika and garlic powder. Simmer over medium heat until spices are able to "mingle" as my grandma says.    While your sauce is cooking, grate your block of cheese.   Heat coconut oil in an omelet pan and when hot fry up your tortillas until they are cooked but still soft enough to bend.  I just had to practice with this.

It was slightly browning in some places.  Remove tortillas from the oil and place on a plate with paper towels to absorb extra oil.  Then when you are done take a tortilla and place in your baking pan.

Put two tablespoons of your sauce down the center 

add cheese

Roll up your tortillas…

Summer Decorating

Decorating has to be one of my favorite things to do. So with summer in full swing I decided to re-decorate the living room,  Ok, Ok so I re-doctored the front entry-way the living-room and currently working on the front porch and dining room. Oh and the back porch. (hey, at least, I didn't move all the furniture around... just most of it) So I thought I would share what I did in the living room. 

And that's it! What do you think?

Organic My Senorita's Purse - Our Version Of KHACHAPURI

This is a great way to use leftovers after you have made tacos or taco salad.  We had taco salad and so we had leftovers of ground beef, black beans, cheese and some jalapenos.  I made simple dough squares to put

Filling:  2 cups of ground beef drained well 1 cup of black beans drained well  1 1/2 cups of organic cheese (I used cheddar and provolone, that is what I had.  Glaze: 1 egg yolk 1 tbsp water Directions: Divide your dough into 5 pieces.  Make each piece a ball and put on a floured surface and roll out to a circle about the size of a small salad plate.  Put a dollop of the filling in the middle and bring all of your purses edges to the center and twist.  Place on your baking sheet and continue with the rest until you are done.  Then take your pastry brush and brush your glaze over the top.
Let the purses sit in a warm place to rise as y…

Poppy Seed Dressing Recipe

This is our dressing for our friend Ms. Wilma.  
She requested a yummy poppy seed dressing like they used to make at her work.  Well, we played around and this is what we came up with.  We served it on a bed of Romaine and red leaf lettuce with tomatoes, carrots, bell peppers, and cabbage. I hope we captured what you were looking for Ms.Wilma, and I hope all of you try it out.  It is a good dressing that is sweet and a little tangy.  Mr. Cottage said he loved it and Grandma has been eating it every day.  We thinned it out a little the 2nd day by adding the extra water to it.  But it is up to you.  
Enjoy everyone!  I hope that you like it!!!Ms. Wilma's Poppy Seed Dressing
