What's for Dinner?

Tonight for dinner, I'm attempting to make tamales for the first time. It looks easy - just takes a long time. Above is the link for the recipe with lots of pictures. I'll let you know how they turn out! What's something you've never made but would like to someday?

UPDATE: There's a good reason why people BUY these instead of make them. They took almost an hour to wrap up! I loved the chicken mixture though so I'm going to swap that into my enchiladas next time I make some.


  1. Braciole! And if your tamales turn out good - I wanna try those!

  2. I've never even heard of that - I had to look it up. Looks yummy, like a meat dessert.
    The tamales were good but I understand why people BUY them instead of make them. They took almost an hour just to wrap and the bottom layer got a little burned from steaming so long even though I had a rack. The chicken/tomatillo mixture was really good though so I think I'll use it the next time I made chicken enchildadas.
