    Saw your quesadilla recipe in a Good Housekeeping round up! You re killing me with these photos. Seriously mouth watering. I love al pastor and how good does it sound thrown into a quesadilla with some salsa verde smothered all over it. Check, please. Oh my gosh, I have no words for that blogiversary cake! A waffled quesadilla? I feel like we need a word dedicated to this. But I can t think of one right now. This looks so yummy, anyways.
