I can not tell you how many times in my life my dear mom has tried to teach me how to make her homemade flour tortillas over the course of my life but for some reason unknown to me I can not get it. I've tried and tried. They always turn out bad. It's so bad that I just gave up a few years ago and started calling mom every time I needed(trust me its a need not a want) her tortillas.
I know what your thinking "just go buy them at the store or find the recipe online" You and I both know that there are thousands and thousands of people sharing how to's online nowadays. I am a huge fan of pinterest and love finding awesome things to make for my family but my mommas tortillas are not on there (there may be some that taste, look and smell exactly like mommas but trust me they are not.)
The reason for this is because hers are made with care, hard work & love. Each batch is mixed without measuring cups & spoons. She just knows. And every tortilla is rolled out to just the right thickness and size by hand with the rolling pin. No quick and easy tortilla press for her. Each one being a different shape (no perfectly round ones here) than the one before it but the warm yummy taste of it is the same every time and if you haven't had them your missing out.

|Almost time to eat! Yummo!|
Now I don't know if mom has taught the other granddaughters this special recipe but she should so they can all pass it on to their children.
My only question is did Dave learn this before he moved out and am I the only one that don't know how to make them?
Thanks Momma you truly are the greatest mom and I love you!
Guess I will try it again soon because I hate the thought that I don't know how.
Thanks for reading
Have a great weekend!
Love you all
