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!

Deconstructed Strawberries Romanov

The other day I was over at Kalyn's Kitchen reading about Strawberries Romanov when I noticed that she had mentioned a restaurant that served strawberries alongside brown sugar and sour cream. First you dip the berry in the sour cream, then lightly coat it in the brown sugar. I was intrigued!

Today I finally got to try it out. It was delicious! You really can't taste the 'sour' part of the sour cream at all. If that seems a little too weird for you, just mix the two together and you get a brown sugar cream seen in this Blueberries and Brown Sugar Cream recipe.

It takes about 5 seconds to throw together and would be perfect on a larger scale for parties as well. I went a little too heavy on the brown sugar with mine, but it was tasty nonetheless.

  2. I actually just indulged in this, this past weekend! I can't believe I haven't had it before now! Except instead of sour cream, they served it with Creme Fraiche...super yummy! My hubby and I had it served to us along with our breakfast!

  3. We use to strawberries like that when I was a kid!! It is SO yummy!! It sounds weird at first but it's GREAT!!! Thank for reminding me of this concoction!! I'll have to try it again soon!

  4. I never thought about sour cream on strawberries but this sounds really good! And since it's so easy I might just have to try it myself :)

  16. Very simply delicious! Your strawberries look like they were freshly picked, too. I can't wait to try this yummy treat.

    Thanks for sharing with Sweets This Week!

  17. Being a child of the 70s, I was raised by "Health Nuts" (bless them) who didn't allow too many treats to come to the table. One of my favorite things that we were allowed however, was fresh strawberries with sour cream and brown sugar. I never knew it had such an elegant name!

    Coincidentally, my husband asked me, just today, if I had ever had strawberries with sour cream and brown sugar. I repeated the story above, and he said that he had never even heard of it, but that a co-worker had been raving about it during the week.

    Well, all signs point to my family enjoying some Strawberries Romanov in the coming week. I, and my family, thank you!

Chicken Doritos Casserole

I'm not even gonna pretend that this anything but what I call "Trash Food." Every once in a while trash food is the best kind of food, comforting and totally delicious. Chicken Doritos Casserole fits that description perfectly. Enjoy!

Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta

For out last get together I made this delicious Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta. This is an appetizer that shrimp fans will love. In our family this is one of our most favorite recipes. It's so delicious! You can go with a baguette instead if you would like bite sized portions, but it is hard to beat a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread. The baguette slices will get much crunchier so if you prefer that mouth feel, you can go with a baguette. A fresh French bread would also work great. Enjoy!

Glazed Kielbasa Pineapple Bites

I found these tasty Glazed Kielbasa Bites at Real Housemoms a few weeks back. They are incredibly quick to put together and bake. If you are feeding a large crowd go ahead and double the amount of kielbasa & pineapple. The sauce should be enough even if you double the main ingredients.

Old Fashioned Ham Salad

Besides making ham and pineapple sandwiches, Ham Salad is my favorite way to use up leftover ham. For a delicious treat, serve this Ham Salad with butter crackers and slices of Swiss cheese. It is crazy delicious. Enjoy!

Cranberry Orange Bread

Moist orange quick bread studded with cranberries. Make this one the day before you plan to eat it and let it sit out overnight (covered) for the best flavor. This is the classic Ocean Spray recipe, minus the nuts as the kids prefer it that way. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it. Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty. Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

Moist Pineapple Banana Bread

Moist Pineapple Banana Bread takes a tropical twist on classic banana bread, using crushed pineapple and coconut. After receiving some feedback that the pineapple flavor was mild, I have added in optional pineapple extract.  For that matter, you could even add in coconut extract as well if you really want to punch up the flavor. I would probably try that out next time I made this, but if you try it before me please let me know how it turned out in the comments. If you were wondering what the black specks are in the bread, as a reader asked below, they are banana seeds. Next time you take a bite of banana, notice the small black seeds that run down the middle. Mystery solved!  Update 2016: I've noticed over the years that banana bread, more so than other breads, has a tendency to burn on the sides and bottom due to the long bake time. After researching how to fix this problem, silicone loaf pans seem to be the answer. I plan on ordering one soon and wi
