Prosciutto is a delightfully crisp accent for soups, pastas, and salads. Arrange the prosciutto slices on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. For the crunchiest texture, allow the prosciutto to cool before serving.

Instead of watering down your drink with ice cubes that are destined to melt, give the entire vessel its own ice bucket. Slip one glass container inside another (we found these multipurpose cylinders at a floral-supply shop, jamaligarden.com), and put the ice between them. The effect is dramatic and guarantees that your punch retains its punch.

To get every last drop from an overly firm lemon or lime, zap it in the microwave for 10 seconds. The heat will soften the fruit, releasing its liquid. Slice it in two. Using one hand, squeeze half (cut side against your palm) over a bowl. The seeds will collect in your hand as the juice flows into the dish.

Pretty fabric butterflies transform a plain-Jane cake into a marvelous tiered wonder -- and there's nary a pastry tip in sight. Simply slide the wired section of each fluttery beauty into a fondant-covered cake, clustering the butterflies here and there for the most dramatic look. Tied around a cake knife, a ribbon in a matching hue completes this super-easy -- not to mention easy on the wallet -- makeover.
