Lemon & Chillies… err Chilli powder

Elle & I are regular readers of Mahanandi & Saffrontrail, and couldn’t resist participating in this month’s JFI event. Being newbies to the blogging world, we were a little skeptical about participating in such an event right off-the-bat.

Between Elle & I, we love food, travel, books, movies, meeting new people and everything in-between. So this blog will about every one of those and some others too 🙂
