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!

Fried Oreos

I call them an Oreo pancake, while another said they were more like an Oreo donut. Can we just agree to call them tasty?

I scaled back the original recipe -- This will be good for (I am guessing) about 12 Oreos. Eat these with caution! As I found out, too many will make you sick. I would plan on 2-3 per person to be safe.

Fried Oreos
Makes several servings

12 Oreo cookies
1/2 cup pancake mix
1/3 cup milk
1 egg
1 tsp of oil

Oil for frying

1. Preheat deep fryer to 375 f degrees. Combine pancake mix, milk, eggs and oil. Mix until there are no lumps. Chill in fridge, covered, for 30 minutes.

2. Dip Oreos into batter, making sure both sides are covered. Gently drop in oil. Flip after approx. 10 seconds and cook for another 15 seconds. (Times are approximated -- You oil may be too hot and cook faster, or it might be not hot enough, and take longer -- try to avoid the 'too cool' situation)

3. Drain on paper towels for a minute, dust with powdered sugar and eat while still warm -- don't let them get cold or they are gross!

  1. Fried Oreos! What a brilliant idea!

  2. My mom makes these, but uses Trader Joe's canned biscuits instead of making the batter. Think I'll ask her to try your recipe next time.

    Oh - and they're extra tasty with Peppermint cookies too!

  3. @ Angie - I'd heard about these from state fair food courts. They will fry anything they can get their hands on. :)

    @ Emily - I bet the peppermint cookie tastes great.

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!
