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!


Cream Cheese Flan






I decided to go a flan recipe with a twist this year. Cream Cheese Flan is a bit like a marriage of flan and cheesecake.  I loved the taste and how simple it was. It is a perfect ending to a big Cinco de Mayo meal. If you have never tried it, the liquid around the flan is sweet and caramel flavored. Enjoy!


Cream Cheese Flan
Makes an 8×8-inch pan

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 (14 ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 350°F and heat sugar in a small, heavy-duty saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir constantly, for 3 to 4 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and caramel colored. QUICKLY pour into bottom of a 2-quart casserole dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

2. Place evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, cream cheese, eggs and vanilla in a blender; cover. Blend until smooth. Pour mixture into the casserole dish (over the dissolved sugar).

3. Place casserole in a 13×9-inch baking dish; fill baking dish with warm water to 1-inch depth.

4. Bake 1 hour and 20 to 30 minutes or until knife inserted comes out clean. Remove flan from hot water. Cool at room temperature in casserole on wire rack. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

5. When ready to serve, run knife around rim; gently shake to loosen. If you are worried about it sticking, you can let the dish soak in a pan with about an inch of hot water to loosen the flan. It shouldn’t take longer than 10-20 seconds to loosen.

6. Invert onto your serving dish. I recommend doing this over the sink encase there is any splashing from the sugar topping as you invert the dish. Also have your apron on!

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!
