I just returned from a whirlwind trip to Baltimore, where I indulged in multiple crab cakes, an Orange Crush (a local drink), loads of seafood and some Derby pie (kind of like a massive chocolate chip cookie). The weather was lovely and I couldn’t get enough of their cobblestone streets, preppy boutiques and salty air. Don’t you just love when you’re pleasantly surprised by a city?

I could easily eat Mexican food for months on end without it ever getting old. That’s why, when my friend Amy told me how simple homemade flour tortillas were to make, I was immediately intrigued. Turns out, they were pretty easy to make (though I did have to throw out my first, horribly dry batch) but the end result was amazing. I used this recipe and highly recommend pairing them with sauteed shrimp, homemade guacamole and some gimlets.
