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!

White Chocolate Peanut Butter

Brace yourself. This is some seriously good eating. White Chocolate Peanut Butter and homemade Strawberry Freezer Jam. Easily the best PB&J I've ever had, and I'm willing to bet the best you've ever had too.

I mean, just look at the deliciousness. Are you ready to make some? Good because it is super simple.

Have you ever tried making homemade peanut butter? What are some creative flavors you would like to add?

Note: I am paranoid about storing this at room temperature, so I stick it in the fridge. It will keep for several weeks in the fridge, otherwise if you keep it at room temperature, I would say it will last one week, but you better keep an eye out for anything funky growing. Yuck, see that is why I store mine in the fridge!

White Chocolate Peanut Butter
Makes 3/4 cup

  • 1 1/2 cups dry, roasted peanuts (I used salted)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips/chunks/bars, melted

1. Add peanuts to a food processor and blend until a thick nut butter forms. Stream in oil and vanilla with the processor on, continuing to run it until the mixture is smooth. You can add more oil if needed, just do it in small increments.

2. Turn off processor, add melted chocolate, and turn processor back on. Blend until smooth.

  1. Ohhhh my goodness!! This look goooood. I love easy blender type recipes!

  2. OMG you had me at white chocolate. And peanut butter too!!! I cannot wait to try this...actually, I might try this right now! Thanks for sharing :)

  3. I'm drooling!!!

    My sister once made these delish homemade chocolate peanut butter cups things....the center was a white chocolate peanut butter mixture that was divine! Makes me want to try this recipe out! :)

  4. This looks soo good! Visiting from SITS and I may just try these recipes!

  5. I've seen a lot of delicious nut butter recipes lately, but every time I make my own, I can't get past the grinding of the nuts b/c I like it so much plain! I so need to try this, though. Sounds divine! The problem is, I don't think I'd bother with the sandwich. I'd grab a spoon and go to town. As far as the pb staying good, there's nothing in the ingredients that would make it go bad. White chocolate and peanuts are shelf stable, and I know there is a white chocolate peanut butter on store shelves that doesn't require refrigeration. Is it harder to spread out of the fridge? If not, I guess it doesn't matter.

  6. Wow. That sounds amazing. I'm going to need to try it!

  7. @ Lindsay - I do too! This is a great one, super easy.

    @ Sweet Little Smoothie - I hope you enjoy it.

    @ Leslie - Those candies sound so good. You should make them and blog about them. ;)

    @ Elzimmy - Thanks :D

    @ Veronica - The reason I got paranoid was because I read someone's comment on a diff. website on a homemade PB recipe that said they found mold in the jar. This was for a cinn raisin PB. Maybe the raisins were moldy, or the jar? Who knows. It does firm up in the fridge but I just stir it up a bunch and it loosens up a bit.

    @ Lynda - Thanks! I hope you enjoy it.

  8. Awesome. Just awesome. Never made my own peanut butter, but I know it has to be easy because I get the 'grind your own' at Whole Foods. Can't wait to try it!

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!
