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!


Apricot Coolers with Cherry Ice Cubes

Apricot Coolers are a delicious surprise that quench your thirst and look doubly cute with cherry ice cubes.

Apricot Coolers with Cherry Ice Cubes
Makes several servings

1 (46 oz) can apricot nectar, chilled (I bought single cans, about 11 oz. each)
1 (12 oz) can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 (32 oz) bottle lemon-lime flavored soda, chilled
Cherry ice cubes (if desired)*

1. In a large nonmetal pitcher or punch bowl, combine apricot nectar and lemonade concentrate; mix well. Just before serving, add carbonated beverage. Serve over ice cubes. Makes 22 (8 oz) servings.

2. I made a much smaller batch (1/4 of original recipe) and kept the apricot/lemonade mixture in a tupperware until ready for use. I then filled a glass with ice, added apricot/lemonade mixture to fill 1/3 of glass, then topped it off with 2/3 part of soda.

*To make cherry ice cubes, place a maraschino cherry in each section of ice cube tray. Fill halfway with water; freeze until firm. Fill try with water and freeze completely.

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!
