    I am looking for a fantastic carne asada recipe........

    Well, the thing is there are no recipes for carne asada, specifically, altogether. Maybe it is just my take of things, but I see it like asking for a good grilled chicken recipe. it's grilled, so all you need is the grill, the bird and whatever else you like on it. But if you're looking for...

    Wow! sounds like such a great business. I always wanted to have my own chocolate factory (maybe I was way too young when my paretns took me to see "Willy Wonka", ) and I'm a big fan of caramel myself. Lucky you! Well, Aaron! Welcome to DC!

    Buñuelos de Manzanilla (camomile dumplings)

I don't know if the herbal looking product is produced of the leaf or the fruit itself but, If you wish to...

    Manzanilla en almibar, o jalea de manzanilla... You know, camomile dessert, either cooked camomile in it's own juices, with sugar, to make a syrup, or camomile marmalade. Or maybe a sweet and sour sauce for chicken, or duck. Or camomile syrup for buñuelos (dumplings) or some other dessert...

    Icing?

    I'm one of those people who feels that the best part of any cake is the icing, for sure. But I'm picky... I HATE whipped cream icing (i.e. coolwhip = YUK :sick: !!), I HATE pudding toppings and I HA-HA-HATE gelatine and fruit toppings (unless it is culis or fruit jam -WITHOUT any jelly bits- ...

    I have to agree with everyone who thinks CHOCOLATE is a most, when it comes to ice-cream and it SHOULD be on the list. I had to vote for my second best: Pralines and creame

    Blender vs. Smoothie

    Maybe all you need to do is throw in a little bit of fluids? Some fresh juice, on top of all the fruit. That will make it not so thick :blink:

    Milk with Sugar (dulce de leche?)

    Flour Tortillas

    kneading the dough should not affect the taste, at all. the authentic Tortillas are shaped by padding them with both hands, as if you were clapping, with the dough in the middle. Not easy to do, that is why, most of tortillas now days are shaped with a tortilla machine or rolled by oneself...

    Flour Tortillas

    Forgot to mention, if you decide to go with the wheat flour tortillas, use chicken broth instead of water. That will add some flavour to them. Still, if you make them with corn flour and chicken broth.... YUMMY! :rolleyes: may I come over for dinner?
