Prosciutto & Mint Wrapped Melon

This is like a fancy appetizer that isn’t actually fancy at all. But prosciutto, in my eyes, is fancy. Probably because it’s more on the expensive side for what you get. I could easily eat an entire package of prosciutto in one sitting and feel kind of full, but not really. And then be pissed because I just pretty much ate dollar bills. Not really, but you know what I mean. Anyways, this will hopefully impress your guests or family without you having to work very hard. The best.

I seriously love Jackson so much. It’s insane. I never knew I could love something so much. And I know I’ve said that before, but he is seriously the greatest thing in the entire world. He is the best cuddler, he makes me laugh, he’s gorgeous, and I don’t care that he wakes me up every day at 6:15am. Nope. I actually get excited that he’s awake so I can cuddle with him again. Wanna see what a cute cuddler he is?? Ok!!


Oh meeeee gosh. So cute.

Ok sorry. Enough about Jackson. Guess what day it is? Guess.What.Day.It.Is?! It’s Throwback Thursday. You know what that means in our household? It’s pancake day. And it kindofbutnotreally has to do with Throwback Thursday because I used one of my recipes from the past. I use my Lemon Raspberry Pancakes but remove the lemon and raspberry and stuff them with breakfast sausage. Yep. Thursday is pretty much the greatest day of the week to me now. This tradition has only gone on for 2 weeks now, but I love it. It’s the day I look forward to the most. Jackson woke us up at 6am today, but I don’t even care because I get to eat pancakes. That’s kind of sad, isn’t it? NO WAY.

Today is also a day I get to celebrate Sergio’s birthday. It was earlier this week but he had to study for his MBA finals. Gross. We are going to celebrate by eating GF pizza (at least mine will be GF) and going shopping. I’m pretty much forcing him to do that even though I know he’s into it too. He’s supported me while jean shopping before, now he must do it with jean shorts shopping. Hopefully I don’t cry like I did last time. I’m also making him my Soft & Chewy Double Chocolate Cookies, but with sprinkles on top.  Sprinkles seriously make anything more exciting. The only thing I ever get on my frozen yogurt (no, that’s not paleo. thank you for trying to state your point) is sprinkles because it just makes it more tasty. Everything else just overwhelms the frozen yogurt and sends you into a sugar coma. Fact.


Prosciutto & Mint Wrapped Melon

  • Yield: 4-5 1x


  • 1/2 melon, skin thinly cut off, sliced to preference (I used cantaloupe)
  • 45 ounces of thinly sliced prosciutto
  • 12 tablespoons fresh mint leaves


  1. Cut melon in half. Place cut side down on cutting board and cut 1 inch pieces of cantaloupe. The use a knife to thinly slice the skin away from the melon.
  2. Place melon pieces on a plate. Sprinkle with 1-2 small mint leaves (or thinly sliced mint leaves) then wrap a piece of prosciutto around the mint and melon. I used a whole piece of prosciutto but use as little or as much as you want.
  3. Repeat. Depending on the size of your melon, this will make 8-10 pieces of prosciutto wrapped melon.
  4. Garnish with extra mint leaves.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Those look delicious – I will for sure have to try those.

    And I feel you on the shorts/jeans issues. The bigger thigh/smaller waist thing most Crossfit women have going on is hard to find clothes for. I had really good luck last year at Gap for jean shorts, and actually just found a pair of shorts at the J.Crew outlet store that fit awesome. Good luck!! Also, Jackson is too cute for words

  2. We get to meet our new puppy in two weeks. She is my first puppy. I am so excited and I love seeing your posts involving Jackson! Also, your recipes and enthusiasm will help me crush my Whole30!

  3. I have the cutest eyelet shorts from the gap. I ordered them online because they weren’t in the store yet. They probably are now. And today is 40% off – online at least. I have pretty big legs and a small-ish (in comparison) waist. It’s my natural body shape augmented by crossfit. I think my waist is 25.5 hips 35 Legs 21 inches +\- 1. I wear a size 4 at lulu and a size 2 in shorts at the Gap and I actually have room for my legs! And last weekend 2 people told me my legs looked amazing in those shorts. One was my husband, but whatever :-P. I’m giving all the credit to the shorts. Jeans are Paige from Nordstrom and ammmmmazing! And sprinkles on soft serve is the only acceptable topping! It’s my absolute fav. I always feel like a child when I get it.

  4. I saw you found American Eagle shorts! yay! Yep, I’m a stalker. Those are my favorite shorts… they fit great and slim out my short stumpy legs. PS: LOVE your recipes, love your rants, Jackson is adorable, and seriously can’t wait for your new cookbook!

  5. A) you’re my favorite and I love all your recipes. B) I have two small pups and they are seriously my world. It only gets worse as they get older and cuter and start to do so many more funny things. Fact. C) Sprinkles are the best.

  6. Hi Juli! I’m headed to Denver in early June and I’m so excited to seek out some of the places I’ve seen you mention on your blog and instagram. Can you give me your top 3 must stops?? Thanks!

  7. i’m getting a puppy next friday! well, she was supposed to come today but the little weenie needed another week with mom. seeing your pictures of jackson on instagram is making it so hard to wait another week! TOO CUTE
