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!


Skillet Goulash

I'm hesitant to admit that my favorite kind of Goulash comes in a single serving tray and is microwaved. I know. Isn't that terrible? The Stouffer's brand. There is something about it that hits just the right spot. Even as leftovers, the celery in this Skillet Goulash wasn't mushy. I love that.

Skillet Goulash
Makes 6 Servings (1 1/2 cups each)

8 oz. uncooked elbow macaroni
1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
1 cup chopped celery
1 chopped medium onion
2 cans (14.5 oz each) diced tomatoes, undrained
2 cans (10 3/4 oz each) condensed tomato soup
1 Tbsp. vinegar
1 tsp. dried basil leaves
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

1. Cook and drain pasta as directed on package.

2. Meanwhile, in a 12-inch nonstick skillet or Dutch oven, cook ground beef, celery and onions over medium-high heat, 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain.

3. Stir in cooked pasta, and all remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; simmer uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  1. Fantastic. My husband never likes it when I make things similar to this (he calls it cafeteria food, I call it a recipe easy enough to handle with an 18 month old tugging at my apron). This recipe impressed him. I had plenty of leftovers to share with my in-laws, too. Thank you for taking the time to post delicious recipes!

  2. Really, really good. I make stuff like this a lot, but this was different. The vinegar makes a big difference. So, so good. Thanks for posting it.

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!


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!


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!
