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!


Sweet and Spicy Apple & Pecan Coleslaw




Next up for Apple Week is a side dish that is unique and super tasty. Lots of crunch, sweetness and a touch of heat make up this delicious coleslaw. I actually skipped the shredded carrots as you can see, but feel free to add them in for more color if you prefer.

Sweet and Spicy Apple & Pecan Coleslaw
Makes 6-8 servings

  • 2 pounds shredded green cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup diced or thinly sliced green apple
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped if desired
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise 
  • 1/4 cup mustard
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar 
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. In a large bowl, toss vegetables, apple and pecans together.

2. In another medium bowl, prepare the coleslaw  dressing by whisking together the mayonnaise, mustard, cider vinegar, sugar, black pepper, and cayenne. Toss dressing with the cabbage mixture, and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cover with plastic wrap  and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.

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!
