This is just about my favorite thing to snack on. I like to slather these guys up in honey and eat about 10 of them.

Mix up:
2 c any kind of flour (i like a mixture of whole wheat and white)
1/2 t (or more) salt
1 t baking powder

-mix until a ball forms. pat/roll out tortillas (they arn't going to look like the kind from the store- i make them smaller and thicker)
-fry without oil on a very hot pan, preferably cast iron

Nonnie's Fried Chicken

My great grandma Nonnie was a legit southerner. She knew her stuff; while I'm not a huge fan of the fried stuff in general, this seems like a dish that one ought to have in their repertoire (and its pretty damn good anyways)

Cut up:
3 lbs chicken

Sprinkle with:
2 1/2 t salt
1/2 t pepper

Shake in a bag with:
1 1/4 c flour

-Fill a skillet halfway full with cooking oil
-Heat the oil until a drop of water pops when dropped into the oil
-Put chicken in (don't crowd, work in batches)
-Place a lid over the skillet and WATCH IT! when the bottom of the chicken turns brown, turn it over (it takes about 15-20 minutes to cook a pan of chicken)
-Take up the chicken on a paper towel.


EVERYBODY loves yogurt. what's better? HOMEMADE YOGURT! and its easy! Heres whatchagottado:
