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!

Rolo Pecan Candies

These are completely addictive. Don't say I didn't warn you.

If you are the treat making and giving kind, I recommend keeping these ingredients on hand.

They take very little effort, they make a ton so you will have some leftovers for yourself, and if you slip them into a treat bag or into a nice tin, you have a tasty treat for a friend.

Rolo Pecan Candies
Makes many servings

2 bags rolos
1 bag mini pretzels
bag of pecans

1. Preheat oven to 250-f degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil. Spread pretzels over baking sheet in one even layer. Add one rolo to each mini pretzel. Bake for 4 minutes.

2. Remove from oven and immediately add a pecan to the top of the rolo, squishing down. Let cool for a few minutes, then transfer baking sheet to fridge to chill for 10 minutes. Remove and store in a sealed container.

It has been several years since I first made these and I'm not sure where I got the recipe from originally. All I know is it is all over the internet, so thanks to whomever posted this recipe first. It is awesome!


  1. Oh my, I used to LOOOOVE Rolos!!! What a fun recipe.

  2. A friend of mine brought these to a party recently. I could not tear myself away! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Rolos are my absolute favorite! Can't wait to taste these!

  4. I want to fall over down dead over this 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!
