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!

Apple Pie Donuts

We have really been giving our little donut maker a workout lately. We did the Chocolate Chip Donuts and Pumpkin Spice Donuts, as well as a few gluten free recipes. This time around we went with Apple Pie Donuts. My secret was that I overfilled the pan just a touch so that there wasn't a hole in the center of each donut, then I placed a dollop of apple pie filling inside of that. So cute and so yummy!
