Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful. Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Loaded Baked Potato Dip

This simple and delicious recipe requires only four ingredients to come together, meaning for a lot of folks they already have everything in their fridge to make this. I do think freshly shredded cheese is best here as the taste and mouthfeel is just better in my opinion than the already shredded bagged cheese, if you can manage it. If you have to use pre-shredded for some reason, hey just go for it, it will still be tasty. Enjoy!

Cherry Tomato, Cream Cheese and Feta Pasta (A Twist on the Tiktok Pasta)

  The famous feta and cherry tomato pasta made the rounds to our house and it certainly lived up to all the hype. I tweaked the recipe to use a little cream cheese for some extra flavor. So much flavor, creaminess and comfort in a super easy recipe. You can't beat that. Enjoy!

The Best Banana Cake with Banana Cream Cheese Frosting

  Fresh on the heels of the best Mayo Banana Bread recipe I've ever made comes this refreshing recipe for Banana Cake with Banana Cream Cheese Frosting. It tastes so fresh and delicious, which I have to attribute tothe wonderful banana frosting. I came across this recipe from the fun cooking blog, The Domestic Rebel . I added cream cheese to the frosting as I love that tangy, cream cheese style of frosting best. If you prefer, you can omit the cream cheese with no other adjustments to the frosting recipe.  For anyone wondering, even though fresh bananas are used, the frosting does not change color, as the lemon juice helps with that. Note that you should keep leftovers in the fridge. This cake tastes wonderful chilled so that works out perfectly.  If you love banana recipes, please be sure to check out my Banana Recipe Board on Pinterest . Enjoy!

Mayo Banana Bread (Best recipe I've ever tried)

  Well, here it is. The best banana bread recipe I've tried, and let me tell you, I've tried so, so many recipes. The perhaps unusual ingredient is the mayo, but as it is with baking, if you mentally break down this ingredient to eggs, oil, and lemon juice (or vinegar), well it makes a bit more sense.  I added a pinch of cardamom to the original recipe from Chin Deep . I love this spice in banana bread, it is my go to after trying it years back in a different banana bread recipe. I hope you give this recipe a try, it is a keeper. Enjoy!
