Prosciutto and melon salad on a plate

Prosciutto and Melon Salad

This summer feels so much hotter than all the ones before it. It may just be due to the fact that our neighborhood pool never opened and that means one less way of fighting this crazy heat. If you find yourself unable to turn on the stove top and/or the […]
