Homemade Flour Tortillas are one of those things that take a little work to make but it so worth the effort and with the help of the food processor the task has become a little bit simpler.

These aren't quite authentic because I've been making Flour Tortillas with butter over the last few months since I seldom have shortening in the house and truth be told I've never bought lard..

Since these are delicious as is, why mess with a good thing?

Warning: Once you start making these it will be hard to eat store bought tortillas ever again.

 Here's how I make Soft Flour Tortillas:

I don't know what it is I love so much about tart little cranberries but boy do I love them especially when combined with orange. 

Cranberry Orange Muffins, breads, cakes and cranberry sauce all speak my inner love language.

Colt and I teamed up Sunday morning to make Orange Cranberry Muffins, scrambled eggs and fresh fruit.

These were so good they barely lasted an hour in our house and the kids were circling around the last muffin like little buzzards waiting to devour their prey.

Sadly for them I stepped in and enjoyed the last little cranberry orange laced muffin for myself because I'm the mom and it solved any complaints of unfairness that might arise from who ate the last muffin. 

I made these after a little Facebook survey to find out if the frozen cranberries in my freezer from last year were still okay to eat.

Thank the lord for my Facebook readers because after much reassurance I went ahead and used the little frozen gems and they were just as delicious as they were last year.

I couldn't believe they survived a whole year in the freezer without being used...

Sneaky..Sneaky.. Little cranberries!

Sirloin Roast Beef Recipe

Sirloin Tip Roast Beef with a Mushroom Red Wine Gravy is a favorite way to roast a less expensive beef cut. The herb butter on the outside of the roast ensures the meat stays juicy with a delicious flavorful herb crust. 

Sirloin Roast Beef with Mushroom Red Wine Gravy is a favorite Sunday Roast. So much flavor from herb butter and the hearty gravy. Delicious for Thanksgiving or Christmas from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

Sirloin Roast with Mushroom Red Wine Gravy is a favorite Sunday Roast in our house. It's a delicious way to cook a less expensive roast cut and can frequently be found on sale at the grocery store.

It's also a delicious cut of beef if you're looking to save a little bit during the holidays. We've chosen a Prime Top Sirloin Roast on occasion for Christmas dinner because it can easily be half as much as a Prime Rib or Chateaubriand on sale, and still quite delicious.

Sirloin Tip Roast or Top Sirloin Roast won't be quite as tender as the more expensive cuts, but what it lacks in tenderness is definitely made up for in flavor. 

The Top Sirloin Roast will be a little more tender than the Sirloin Tip Roast in my opinion, but both are equally delicious. I use this recipe interchangeably for either Sirloin Roast depending on what's available and on sale at the store.
