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!


Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies




You read the title right folks. Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies! I dedicate this post to Ron Swanson. So anyhow, you may be wondering how these cookies came about. I saw the recipe over at Adorkable Recipes, which by the way is such an amazing title for a food blog, and I immediately pinned them.

Back when I was preggo cravings had driven me to make peanut butter and bacon grilled sandwiches, which were delicious. Putting this in cookie form I knew would work well and I thank Adorkable for her recipe. If you dig salty/sweet combinations of food and aren't scared to try something a bit different, give these a try. I thought they were delicious.


One issue that I have is I tend to make cookies way over sized because I don't like babysitting the oven all evening to make small cookies. So that is the reason my cookies are gigantic and Adorkables are much smaller.

Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies Recipe
Makes 3-1/2 dozen cookies


  • 3/4 cup Jif Creamy Peanut Butter 
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1-1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 6-8 bacon strips, crisply cooked and crumbled

1. Heat oven to 350-f degrees.

2. In a large bowl, cream together peanut butter, shortening, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla.  Add in the egg and beat to combine.

3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.  Add in 3 increments to the creamed mixture, stirring after each addition. Mix just until blended.  Fold in crispy bacon crumbles. Scoop into tablespoon size balls of dough and place 2 inches apart onto a baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until set and just beginning to brown.  Cool completely on cooling racks.

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!
