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.


Lucky Charms Treats

A new day, a new St. Patrick's Day Treat! I know I mentioned this on the St. Patrick's Day Recipe & Craft Linkup, but a lot of the time we associate holidays with non traditional foods. For St. Patrick's Day you can get away with pretty much anything as long as it has a lot of green, or maybe flavors of mint or lime.

I colored the marshmallows in these Lucky Charm Treats just to give them a hint of green, but that is optional.  I found this recipe at The Sweets Life, and it turned out adorable and tasty.

One tip that I have done for years when making rice krispies treats is to use a 9×9 or 8×8 pan, instead of the traditional 9×13. I like big ol’ chunky rice krispies treats so the smaller pans work perfectly to achieve that.

To make them extra cute, reserve about 1/2 cup of the Luck Charms marshmallows to decorate the top with. Many thanks to The Sweets Life for this recipe. Enjoy!

Lucky Charms Treats
Makes 9 large squares

  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • 5 cups Lucky Charms cereal
  • for garnish: reserve about 1/2 cup of Lucky Charms marshmallows
  • optional: green food coloring

1. In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt butter and mini marshmallows, stirring constantly.

2. Once melted, pour in cereal and mix until well-coated. (If using food coloring, add it to the melted marshmallows and stir well before adding the cereal)

3. Press cereal mixture into a greased 9 x 9 pan. Sprinkle with reserved Lucky Charms marshmallows.

4. Once set, cut into 12 squares and serve.

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!

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!
