Recently, my husband and I celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary. We dined out one evening while we were recently in Florida and my husband asked the chef to create a new appetizer by adding some pan-seared prosciutto to a tomato mozzarella salad they had on the menu. He said it was fabulous and asked me to replicate the recipe again when we got home. Since our actual anniversary was last Tuesday, I decided that since we would be eating dinner at home that evening, I would make these Caprese Stacks with Pan-Seared Prosciutto to surprise him.

When I tested this recipe with my nephew Jake, we gobbled up the quesadillas and I'm betting you will too.
I went to high school with a guy who seriously thought he was David Letterman. He forever tarnished Top Ten Lists for me. And yet, when I sat down to write about my time in Atlanta at BlogHer Food a Top Ten List spewed forth. 10) Being filmed cutting a mango. Who’s idea was it to hand a very large knife to a very nervous shaky gal??? 9)...more
When I was in high school, I basically lived on sandwiches. They were much more basic than these pressed picnic sandwiches, but they were my favorite thing to eat - I would usually prefer to make myself a sandwich for dinner (or even breakfast) than have what my mom was making. I'm sure that this was frustrating beyond belief, but my mom always kept our fridge stocked with plenty of cold cuts and cheeses so that I could make my beloved sandwiches.
