Obsession: Prosciutto

I'll be the first to admit that I have an unhealthy love affair with Prosciutto, Italy's gift of porky-goodness. I've used this air-dried, salt-cured treat with veggies, fruit, or as a side to cheeses for years. But recently, I've become obsessed with it cooked, crunched, and crumbled on my side-dishes, eggs, soups, salads, or meats (chicken, fish, steak). (Well, quite frankly, almost anything I'm cooking.) Although this habit can be expensive, a little bit of Prosciutto delivers in a big way. Simply place 2-3 slices on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, or, when cooled, the Prosciutto can be easily crumbled while still maintaining it's crunch. Warning: Once you've tried this taste sensation, it's a habit that may be hard to break.

About Mod City Mom

After becoming mothers, sisters Sarah Romine and Leah Weyandt wanted to marry the activities and interests that they experienced before motherhood with their new found lives with children. This was not always an easy task—traveling to obscure places, shopping at off-beat boutiques, and sipping lazy-afternoon cocktails doesn't always fit neatly with parenthood. Stemming from their frustration, they meticulously searched, and continue to search, for activities, establishments, and entertainment that they take pleasure in and their families benefit from. The result? Mod City Mom.
