Prosciutto-Wrapped Melon

Nowadays I’m always in a time crunch. With a 2 month old baby who refuses to lay down and wants to be held 24/7, I really have to operate as efficiently as possible. This means I cannot be a slave in the kitchen. I’ve challenged… Read More

A Kale Salad

I’m not the healthiest person by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, on my last monthly visit to the Dr., my nurse informed me that I was gaining too much weight. Actually, double the weight that I’m supposed to for this stage in my… Read More
