It's that time again

Oh, yes, I have been anxious to make tamales all week. My daughter is out of town and isn't expected back until tomorrow and looks forward to making tamales, too! So I have Sunday reserved for our tamale day. My family lives far away, it would be nice if they were here with us, but it's not happening this year. Anyway, today I made a practice batch, after all this is my second time making tamales on my own, so I need the practice. In previous years, we would visit my Mom in Sacramento for Christmas and make tamales. She taught me how to make them and encouraged me that I can do it! Well, since this is my practice batch and this recipe looked very easy and not such a large batch to deal with, I went for it. I must say they were pretty tasty and a cinch to make with the help of a little gadget that I bought on ebay.

Here's the recipe from this month's Cooking Light. Okay, mine didn't look as pretty as the picture, but they tasted pretty good.

Here's the Mas Tamales Masa Spreader that made life a little easier when making tamales. Actually, I shouldn't wait until Christmas time to make tamales, they can be made and enjoyed any time of the year.
