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.


Korean Hamburgers

Korean Hamburgers 
4 servings

For the burgers:
1 lb ground beef
4 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 tablespoons chopped green onions
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 dash black pepper

4 hamburger buns
1 Tbsp. butter
Any other fixin's you like - I add sliced avocado. If you are feeling adventurous, you could try adding to the avocado some grilled portobello mushrooms, pickled ginger and goat cheese. I know that sounds crazy but the best burger I've ever had was a burger that tasted like this one with these toppings. It was phenomenal.

1. Mix burger ingredients thoroughly. Shape into 4 patties. Grill or fry as usual.

2. Spread butter evenly over hamburger buns. Toast in a toaster oven or in a griddle. Add hamburgers and toppings and serve.



  1. Oh My Gosh Girl! are you okay? How Scary that must of been for the both of you. Maybe Violet is just a little shaken up a bit from the fall...has this happened before with your knee? Geesh...take it easy. ((Hugs))

  2. I hope you're ok! I'm sure you were more worried about little Violet than yourself. Thank goodness she was ok.

    I love your recipes, anything with asian seasonings is a favorite in this house. I am going to give them a try.

  3. Happy New Year! I never knew you had a new blog. Hope your knee is ok.

  4. This is the first time for me reading your blogs. I just grilled some Korean hamburgers last nite and they were so good. Instead of using shoyu, garlic, etc for seasoning, I use chopped up kim chee, samjang paste,tofu, and 1 egg.
    Measurements are not precise as I eye-ball, feel, and smell to determine if flavorings are sufficient. The samjang paste is the man flavoring ingredient and I added a couple of nice dollops. You can still add in other ingredients to your liking such as green onions, sesame oil, etc. Whatever the mixture, these burgers are sooo good.

    Will try some of your other recipes. Do you have a good one for jajiang mein like the kind they show actors eating in korean dramas?


  5. I love Korean food so I know I'd really enjoy this. I'm going to have to give this a try.

  6. Burgers looks sooo good. Will have to make this!

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!

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!
