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!


Candy Cane Kissed Cookies


Aren't these cookies adorable and festive? Many thanks to Tumbleweed Contessa for this delicious cookie recipe. These cookies definitely liven up a Christmas cookie tray. One point to note is not to add the chocolate kisses while the cookie is still warm, or else the chocolate will melt into a not so attractive puddle.


Enjoy!



Candy Cane Kissed Cookies
Makes about 3 dozen

Ingredients:
  • 1 bag Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoons milk
  • Red and green colored sugar
Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Remove the wrappers from the candies and keep in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. Beat butter, sugar, vanilla, and egg in a large bowl until well blended.  Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add alternately with milk to butter mixture, beating until well blended.
  3. Shape dough into 1 inch balls.  Roll in red and/or green colored sugar.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cookies are set.  Remove from oven; cool 15 minutes. (If you add the kisses too soon they will melt)  Press candy piece into the center of each cookie.  Remove them from the cookie sheet and cool completely on a wire rack.

  1. This recipe went around last year and I tried them. They are really tasty and look so pretty on a tray! I found they did get stale rather quickly (anything with the sugar crystals on the outside seems to do this!) but that shouldn't be a problem if you eat them quickly :-)

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!
