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!

Nectarine Almond Pie


I may be on a pie kick lately. There is something about Summer that makes me want to bake lots of fruit pies and today I have a delicious recipe for a Nectarine Almond Pie. There is just a touch of almond in it, just enough to add a hint of flavor and uniqueness to the standard fruit pie. Enjoy a slice warm or cold, although I preferred it cold from the fridge.

Nectarine Almond Pie
Makes one 9" pie

  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 5 nectarines
  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie shell

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Place a large pot of water over high heat, and bring to a boil.

2. Combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, heavy cream and almond extract. Set aside.

3. Place the nectarines in boiling water for 30 to 45 seconds. Immediately place nectarines under cold running water and remove skins. Cut nectarines in half and remove pits. Place halves in the pie shell with the cut side down. Pour the cream mixture around the nectarines.

4. Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 35 to 40 minutes. Good served warm or cold.

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!


Chicken Doritos Casserole

I'm not even gonna pretend that this anything but what I call "Trash Food." Every once in a while trash food is the best kind of food, comforting and totally delicious. Chicken Doritos Casserole fits that description perfectly. 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!
