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!


PB and J Cookies

I went nuts over these cookies. They are a perfect balance of soft peanut butter cookie, a dab of jam and an amazing but simple peanut butter frosting. They are YUM-O and I don't care who knows it.

PB and J Cookies
Makes 20-25 cookies

1/2 c. AP flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1/4 c. unsalted butter, room temp.
3/4 c. granulated sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 egg
Strawberry Jam
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp. milk

1. Preheat oven to 350 f degrees. In a small bowl, stir together flour and baking powder. Set aside.

2. In the bowl of your mixer, blend 3/4 of the peanut butter with the room temperature butter on medium speed. Add the granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat till smooth, approx. 5 minutes. Beat in the egg until incorporated. Stir in the flour mixture until just combined.

3. Using a small ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, drop the dough 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookies sheets. Using your thumb, gently dent the center of the cookies. Spoon 1/2 tsp. of the strawberry jelly into each center. Bake until lightly golden, about 12 minutes. Remove to a cookie rack and cool.

4. In a small bowl, beat together the remaining 1/4 cup of peanut butter and the confectioners' sugar. With a fork or whisk, stir mixture while adding the milk, a little at a time, until the frosting reaches a good consistency for piping. Using a resealable bag with a tiny corner cut off, pipe the frosting over the cookies.

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!
