Green Salt Focaccia

I have been an awful blogger lately, I hit my all-time low (or at least I hope so) last month with one measly post, and last week I didn’t even have the excuse of being busy with work.  I spent my warm summer beach days lazily drifting along the ocean currents, soaking up the sun,…
