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!


Chile Con Queso

Today was one of those days where melted, spicy cheese really hit the spot. I think my personal preference would be to make this without the sausage the next time around, but that is just me.

Chile Con Queso, Revved Up
Makes many servings, plus extra for freezing

2 lb package Velveeta Cheese
1 lb package Hot Breakfast Sausage (Jimmy Dean, Potter’s, etc.)
1/2 large onion
1 regular can Rotel (either Regular or Extra Hot, according to preference)
1 7-oz can diced green chilies
1 to 3 finely diced jalapeno peppers, according to preference. (If you like things more spicy,
leave the seeds and white membranes.)

1. Chop the onion and brown with the breakfast sausage. Drain excess fat so you won’t have a
coronary. Cut Velveeta into cubes and add to warm skillet. Add Rotel and green chilies, and stir
together over low heat until mixture is melted. Add finely diced jalapenos, stir together, and serve warm with tortilla chips. During serving, Queso needs to be kept warm, either in a fondue pot, chafing dish, or Crock Pot.

2. Queso can be frozen flat in Ziploc bags and reheated.

  1. I have made her cream cheese, bacon, and jalapeno snacks, but we do them on the grill. MUCH better grilled.

    I've made the strip steak sandwiches for my husband, which he liked. I tried her lasagna, but neither of us liked it.

    I'm afraid that this is one that I won't try because I don't allow processed cheese in my house. I mean, I do live in Wisconsin after all. ;)

  2. This reminds me of when I was a teacher. We seemed to have it in the teachers lounge almost every Friday. Yum.

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!
