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!

Creamy Dreamy Fudge

Are you guys getting excited for the Christmas season? I know I am. I have been saving this recipe for a while now for when we got closer to the holiday season and it is finally time. This is the best fudge recipe I have ever tried and it comes from an amazing blog, Jamie Cooks It Up!

It is my definition of the perfect fudge. It is sweet, a great consistency and the best part perhaps is that you don't have to use a cooking thermometer. Makes lots and pass it on to your friends this Christmas season. Enjoy!

Creamy Dreamy Fudge
Makes one 9" x 13" pan

  • 4 cups sugar
  • 1 large can evaporated milk (12 oz)
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 large Hershey Chocolate Candy Bars (they are about 4.4 oz each)
  • 1 12 oz package milk chocolate chips
  • 1 7 oz jar marshmallow cream

1. Put the sugar, milk and butter into a large sauce pan.

2. Stir it all together over medium high heat. Bring it to a boil while you continue stirring. Once the mixture has reached a "hard boil" (this means it keeps boiling, even while you are stirring) continue cooking for 5 minutes while you stir.

3. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the Hershey Chocolate Bars, chocolate chips and marshmallow cream. Mix it well so that all the ingredients are well combined.

4. Pour the fudge into a buttered 9"x13" pan.

5. Let the fudge set and cool for about 1 hour. After it has cooled down you can cover the pan with plastic wrap and store it in the fridge. It also freezes really well.

Note: If not eating right away, wrap it tightly. (I keep mine wrapped in plastic wrap and inside of a container)

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!
