Homemade Pita Pocket Bread

Now this is definitely a recipe to try!

Homemade Pita Pocket Bread | Tammy’s Recipes.

I just made these the other day. I think this may be my 2nd or 3rd time and they are wonderful.  I use the bread machine dough version and each time they have come out great.

The first time I made them, my daughter and I were amazed that there actually was a pocket!  No need to ever buy pita bread again.

I’m thinking of maybe trying to add some garlic or parmesan cheese just to mix it up next time.

Something I would like to warn everyone about…  The first time I made these, I used a cooling (baking) rack that I had placed on a cookie sheet.  Not thinking much of it, I baked my pita.  After a while I started to notice a strange smell.  Well after taking out my 3rd set, I realized my rack had little rubber feet at the bottom.  Didn’t even notice they were there before!  Well that baking sheet and rack were goners!  Not that anyone would do that except of course, ME!  So I ended up having to make a trip to Sur la table for a new ones.  Luckily for me they were having a sale!

I have recently read that you could also use a pizza stone to bake these on which I think I might try next time too.

Ragu Spaghetti Tacos?

I received my May issue of All You magazine today and what do I see on the first page when I open it up?  Ragu Spaghetti Tacos.  Not quite sure if this is one to try. But who knows, maybe it will catch on?

Taco Truck-Style Tacos

I just had share one of my family’s favorite recipes.  They are so easy to make and so yummy!

I read this in the LA Times years ago in a section I think was called SOS.  Anyone remember that?  I couldn’t find my recipe a while back, so I decided to search the internet and lo & behold I was able to locate it and saved it to my Evernote.  I didn’t realize the recipe was from 1999.  Who would have thought it was THAT long ago?  It’s an oldie but a goodie!

Anyhow, I made these the other day and I just have to say they are delish!  I really don’t stray from the recipe as there is no need, but instead of using already cooked pork, I use an uncooked pork roast.  The one I just made was about 3 lbs. and it cooks in the same amount of time as the recipe, 10 hours on low.  I just adjust the amounts of the ingredients to the amount of pork I’m using.  I usually put everything together in the crock pot the night before, prep some of the other items like the cilantro & onion and store everything in the refrigerator.  When I get up in the morning I start my crock pot.

When I get home, the house smells wonderful and everything is all ready to go!  I just take the pork out and shred, warm up some tortillas and then let everyone make their own.  My family likes to add cheese, sour cream, avocado along with the onion & cilantro.  Also, don’t forget some extra lemon or lime to squirt on top along with some Tapatio!  Did I say yum?  Oh yeah, I already did!  Ha ha.
