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!

Hot Chocolate Mix

The rain and storms are already moving in for a lot of us as Fall approaches. A great treat to have on hand is a do it yourself Hot Chocolate Mix. If you are a marshmallow fan I recommend keeping them separate from the mix when storing, otherwise they will get stale.

Hot Chocolate Mix
Makes many servings

  • 8 qt. box of dried instant milk
  • 1 small jar powdered coffee creamer
  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 med or large box of Quik

1. Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container. A large plastic ice cream container is good to store this in.

2. Fill cup about ⅓ full of mix and add hot water. Stir and serve.

Recipe from my mom


  1. My wife makes this, but leaves off the Quik and uses the flavored coffee creamers for either a mint or cinnamon flavor. The nice thing about this recipe is that it dissolves better then almost any of the store bought mixes.

  2. @Keros - That is a genius idea to use a flavored coffee creamer. I am partial to mint, I am going to try that out the next time I make a batch. Thank you (and her) for the wonderful idea.

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!
