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 & Clove Glazed Ham

I've got a quick recipe for you today as I am behind the scenes working on the blog this week. Apricot and Clove Glazed Ham is delicious and perfect for a special meal on Easter or Christmas, or for that matter year round as it is super simple to make. As seen in the picture we baked it with fresh cut pineapple (not canned!). My only word is advice is to please not use those water packed hams that are cheap and flavorless. Get the good stuff!

Apricot & Clove Glazed Ham

  • 1 jar apricot preserves
  • pinch of cloves (more if you want a stronger clove flavor)

1. Mix the preserves and cloves together until well combined. (Taste for seasoning at this point to see if you want it to have a stronger clove flavor). Brush over ham as it cooks, following the instructions for cooking as directed on the package of the ham.


  1. Yum... I adore the combination of ham and cloves!

    1. Hollie - I agree! It is a really delicious combination.

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!
