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!


Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Rice Krispies


Rice Krispies Treats are a classic childhood dessert. It was a special night in our house when mom pulled out the ingredients to make a batch, and you can bet they were gone by the next day. I wanted to jazz up the classic recipe so I went on a recipe search. Up came this recipe that included peanut butter in the krispies mix, with a dunk in melted chocolate to finish it off. They are deliciously addictive.


Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Rice Krispies
Makes several servings


  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, plus more for dish
  • 10 ounces jumbo marshmallows
  • 3/4 cup creamy, common brand peanut butter (recommended: Jif or Skippy)
  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal (recommended: Rice Krispies)
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips


1. Melt the butter over low heat in a large pot. Stir in the marshmallows and cook until fully melted and no marshmallow white remains. Stir in the peanut butter until combined. Stir in the cereal until distributed evenly through the marshmallow mixture. Pour out onto a lightly greased rectangular baking dish (9" x 13"). Smooth out the top of the treats by moistening your hands with a little water and using the palms of your hand to press down gently. Don't press down too hard or else your treats will be too dense. Set aside to cool.

2. Once the treats have cooled, melt the chocolate over low heat. Cut the treats into even squares and quickly just shallowly dip the top side of the treats into the chocolate. Turn chocolate side up and set in a baking dish or on a rack until set. (I *gently* flipped my batch of treats over onto themselves to create an extra thick rice krispies treat)

  7. Oh my gosh, hide these from any kids because these should be rice krispie treats for grown-ups alone. I hope you'll come by and link them up to Sweets for a Saturday #6. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com/2011/02/sweets-for-saturday-6.html

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!
