Tandoori Chicken Quesadillas, Pineapple Salsa

Yes, the last recipe I posted was also "mexican inspired", and yes so is this one. Sorry but I can't help it.  I guess I'm in a bit of a phase. With that said, you guys should know now that I LOVE quesadillas. It's not the first thing I would order if I were out dining, but I will take a home made quesadilla any time of day.

Taco Pizza with Cilantro Jalapeño Sauce

I grew up eating my mom and my masi's (masi = mom's sister) versions of their favorite mexican restaurant dishes at home and I've been obsessed ever since.  They would whip up everything from chimichangas,  to salsas which always tasted more like chutney (lol!).

It's got spicy and sweet chutneys, Amul sliced cheese and I swipe a little mayo on the outside of the

Thirty & Thirsty

To be honest, 30 years go by realllllllyyyy fast. They go by even faster when you are busy becoming a woman. Your twenties are basically jam packed with first loves, heartbreaks, hangovers, job hunting, husband hunting (lol), metabolism changes (the worst) and the list goes on.  Aside from all this mess, whether we realize it or not...we are becoming the most powerful versions of our younger naive selves.
