Do it Babetoo, Your going to LOVE them and they're quite easy to make. The only hard part of the whole process is wrapping them up that will take a bit of time. My mom and I did 15 + in about half hours time, but then again we both did the wrapping together.
I've even got my mom to like them, She said she hated them so much she would never try them again and she did try them and fell in love with them.
Why she hated them in the first place because her husband at the time when she tried her first one purchased canned tamales and forgot to tell don't eat the corn husk, She ate the husk on one them and hated it.
Now I taught her the right way to eat them and she loves them! By the way if you have a Mexican store go there and buy ready made masa dough for tamales. That will help with the time management.
