Homemade Tortillas

I have wanted to try these for a long time, but to be honest I was terrified. Not sure why, but its gotten to the point where we just can't afford a $2 package of tortillas. This is my second try at making them. They get easier each time, and better tasting according to DBF. I got my recipe over on Emily's blog.

And while keeping to my #2 New years resolution this recipe cost me $.20 for 8 tortillas. Store boughten is $2 for twelve. So that is a $1.04 savings. Not a lot but it is worth it to me. These tast so much better and I know what is in them!

  1. That is the reason I started making my own too, the price. With 7 of us, and each one eating two each time and packing lunches for work the next day, we went through a lot. I too was scared to try and then my first two attempts failed. So when I learned how to do it, I was VERY happy. I have the electric press and it sure makes a difference.

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

How to Make Buttermilk From Regular Milk

Frugal Tip Tuesday is a weekly
series here at Frugal Farmhouse.
I want to share easy tips and tricks
to help you along your frugal journey.

How many times have you started making something only to realize that little container of buttermilk you bought 6 months ago is expired. Has it really been in there that long?

Here is a quick way to make buttermilk out of regular milk.


-Milk (just under 1 cup)
-1 Tablespoon White Vinegar or Lemon Juice

Put the vinegar (or lemon juice) in the bottom of a liquid measuring cup. Then fill it up to the 1 cup line with milk.

Let it stand about 5 minutes. Then you have Buttermilk! It gets kinda chunky, this is normal. Now you can use it in any recipe just as you would buttermilk.
