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!

Cornbread Salad

While we are in the middle of a super hot Summer, a delicious side dish is this Cornbread Salad. A moist cornbread is topped with crunchy vegetables, a ranch sauce and shredded cheese. It is an amazing side dish to something like BBQ chicken. You will want to use your favorite recipe for cornbread for this. I use Cornbread Supreme typically, but you can use a traditional cornbread too, or even a box mix (gasp!)

If you prefer, you can crumble up the cornbread, or even cut it into cubes and layer it in a trifle dish. Or you can keep it simple like me and pile it in a 9"x13" pan and call it good. Using this method I did cut up the cornbread into large squares just to make serving it easier from the pan.

I used the toppings from Recipe Shoebox for her Chili Cornbread Salad, just minus the beans. It is refreshing and delicious. Enjoy!

Cornbread Salad
Makes one 9"x13" pan

Prepared cornbread, enough for a 9"x13" pan, cut into squares or if preferred, crumbled (I used this recipe)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 envelope ranch dressing mix
  • 2 cans (15-1/4 oz. each) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 3 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 large green pepper, chopped
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 10 bacon strips, crumbled
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

1. If you haven't done so, add half of the the cornbread to the bottom of a large serving dish/pan.

2. Mix the mayo, sour cream and ranch dressing mix together well.

3. Mix the corn, tomatoes, peppers, green onions, bacon and cheese together.

4. Layer the dish as follows:  Cornbread, veggies, mayo. Repeat.

Alternatively you can do one layer of cornbread then the ranch mix, then the veggies on top and serve.

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!
