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!

Chinese Cabbage Salad

 Holy cats. This Chinese Cabbage Salad is super delicious. My picture didn't turn out anywhere near as pretty as Jamie's at Jamie Cooks It Up! but trust me on this one. Even the super picky eaters loved it and came back for seconds and thirds. Enjoy!

Chinese Cabbage Salad
Makes approx 15 servings

  • 2-2 1/2 pounds nappa cabbage, washed and cut very thinly
  • 5 green onions, sliced thin
  • 1 cup shredded carrots (optional)
  • 3 packages ramen noodles, crushed (throw them in a Ziploc and hammer them with something heavy)
  • 1/2 C. butter
  • 1/4 C. sliced almonds
  • 1/4 C. sesame seeds
  • Dressing:
  • 3/4 C. peanut oil (or 3 T peanut butter + canola oil to equal 3/4 C) *I used the substitution and it turned out amazing. I am gonna use this from now on instead of actual peanut oil
  • 1/2 C. sugar
  • 1/4 C. rice vinegar
  • 2 T soy sauce

1.  Combine the cabbage, green onions and carrots in a large serving bowl. Set aside (or in the fridge).

2. In a large saute pan, combine the butter, almonds and sesame seeds. Cook, stirring frequently, until everything becomes lightly browned. Set aside to cool.

3. Prepare the dressing: Combine the dressing ingredients in a sauce pan over medium heat. Once combined, bring heat up to medium high and bring to a rolling boil. Boil for one minute and remove from heat. Let cool.

4. To serve: Combine all ingredients right before serving. Layer the cabbage down first, then crunchy topping, then the dressing.

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!
