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!

The Green Monster Smoothie

Today I wanted to share one bad mutha of a smoothie recipe. Sometimes called "The Green Monster" because of the bright green color, this smoothie is chock full of nutrients. Sure, the color is a little scary, but I personally could not taste the spinach in this, which was great. Ready for the recipe?

The Green Monster Smoothie
Makes 2-3 Smoothies

1 banana, cut in chunks
1 cup cling peaches
1 (6 ounce) container vanilla yogurt
1/2 granny smith apple, cored and chopped
1/2 cup juice of your choice
1 1/2 cups fresh spinach leaves

1. Place the banana, peaches, yogurt, apple, juice and spinach into a blender. Cover and blend until smooth, stopping frequently to push down anything stuck to the sides. Pour into glasses and serve.

  1. I'm so excited to make this--I actually have all necessary ingredients. It not only sounds delicious, but quite nutritious. I've been sneaking spinach into everything these days, and I can't wait to sneak it into this smoothie! Thanks!

  2. I am typically against all things smoothie because they appear to be healthy and foul tasting. But this one? Mmmmm. I really even like the green color!

  3. Wow, this is one daring smoothie! I've been making my boys a lot of smoothies lately though maybe I could sneak the spinach in there... hmm. Can you taste the spinach very much?

  4. Ok... you have me convinced. I'll give it a go! Thanks for sharing. Gosh it's so green... lol! No... I'm doing it.

  5. Oh how I love green monsters! Try adding a little bit of cilantro too, gives it a nice zesty lime kick! Thanks for sharing girl,

  6. Looks great! Going to have to try it! I'm on a mission to have a juice like this for lunch's hard to do... Thanks for the recipe!

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!

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!
