Two Quick Summer Appetizers in Less Than 10 mins!

Summer is my favorite season! It’s all about fun in the sun, making new memories, maybe even traveling with friends and family. What else do I love about summer? All the fun cookouts and picnics!! I found two of my favorite quick treats to make and you don’t have to go anywhere near a stove.  Oh, did I mention they take less than 10 mins to make?! Woo hoo! You’re taste buds are about to party. Below you will find the recipes for Melon Caprese Skewers  & Shrimp and Corn Tostadas! Both of these appetizers were found in my June magazine of Women’s Health!
