Since there is absolutely no rhyme (actually, there is occasional bad poetry, but metaphorically speaking) nor reason to the subjects of my posts, I give you my favorite tortilla making tip: Use a wooden dowel about the size of a broom handle instead of a rolling pin. You will get nice flat tortillas much more easily that way.* I learned this trick from Carolina Mama at Apron Strings when I was a teenager.
The olive oil in the background of the picture is so that you know I'm a good cook. (I've learned that from the Food Network. There always has to be EVOO involved in good cooking. Unless you're Paula Dean–then it's a stick of butter.) These whole wheat tortillas turned out pretty well, but I like them better with white flour. Alex likes to put pepperoni and cheese in them and melt it on the stovetop like a hot pocket. He's really into healthy food.
For some reason I can't link to the article with the good recipe and extensive information. But if you google "How to make flour tortillas" it is the first one to come up.
*Also, if you allow your five-year-old niece to help you roll them out, it doesn't really matter what you use. Some of the tortillas will be thicker on one side than the other.
