    Masala Salsa for Indian Tacos and Burritos

    An addition to my regular weekly menus in recent years has been Indian burritos and tacos. Basically we make cheater tandoori chicken and then wrap Indian-spiced foods in tortillas. And we love it. After a few times serving them, I felt like we needed some sort of tomato salsa to go on the burritos, in addition to raita. And that is how masala salsa was born.

    This recipe is simple, quick and easy and adds great flavor to your Indian tacos and burritos. And when I say it’s easy, I mean it. I make this little sauce every time I make the Indian burritos and tacos and it’s no big deal.

    Also, I totally made this up. The name, the concoction, all of it. I’m not claiming this is actual, real-live Indian food. These are simply recipes inspired by Indian cuisine that are delicious and fun. Disclaimer over. 😉

    Ingredients
    • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
    • ½ teaspoon garam masala
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
    Instructions
    1. Slice cherry tomatoes into halves.
    2. Put tomatoes into a small saucepan and add the garam masala, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat as low as it will go while still maintaining a simmer, probably around medium-low. Let tomatoes simmer until some of the fluid cooks off, about 10-15 minutes.
    3. Store leftovers in the refrigerator. Can be served fresh and warm or cold from the fridge!

  4. If you’re looking for an awesome cake idea…Chocolate M&M Cake

    Here’s the deal with this post. The pictures are not that great. And I’m just linking to recipes. HOWEVER. I must write this post because I must share this cake with you. It is too delicious not to share. Let me introduce you to the most divine Chocolate M&M Cake you will ever eat.

    Chocolate M&M Cake from @janemaynard

    The pictures of this Chocolate M&M Cake are no good because I finished making the cake after the sun went down..and then we ate too much of it for me to take photos the next day. It was that good. Lest you think the Maynards are big ol’ piggies, we were hosting a party so we had a whole group of people helping with the consumption of this cake! (Although…I might be able to put down a good portion of this cake myself.)

    Chocolate M&M Cake from @janemaynard

    Here’s what I did to make this cake:

    1. I used the cake part of the SoNo Chocolate Ganache Cake recipe.
    2. I frosted the cake with my M&M frosting recipe.
    3. I broke up a bunch of M&Ms in a zip-top bag with a hammer and then stuck those broken M&Ms on the sides of the frosted cake.
    4. Angels descended from heaven and sang Hallelujah.

    You’re welcome.
