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!

Lemon Supreme Rice Krispies Treats



Rice Krispies Treats are a childhood favorite of mine, so when I saw this recipe at Sweet As A Cookie, I had to try it out. My secret to the perfect rice krispies treat is to use an 8-inch pan for thicker squares, as well as having a gentle hand when pressing the treats into the pan, being careful not to compress the treats too much. Many thanks to Sweet As A Cookie for this delicious recipe. Enjoy!

Lemon Supreme Rice Krispies Treats
Makes an 8" x 8" pan for extra thick squares

  • 5 Tbsp. butter
  • the zest of 1 lemon
  • the juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 and 1/2 bags of marshmallows (10 oz. bags)
  • 2/3 cup Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme cake mix
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies

1. Prepare a 8-inch pan with butter; set aside.

2. In a large saucepan melt butter over low heat with the lemon zest and juice. Add in marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Slowly stir in the dry cake mix.

3. Once combined remove from heat and stir in the cereal. Scoop into prepared pan. Very lightly spray your hands with cooking spray and smooth the top of the treats and fill in along the edges to get an even layer. Let cool for about an hour.

4. To cut them up easily, put down a big piece of parchment paper on the counter top. Run a knife along the edges of the pan of rice krispies treats to loosen them, then invert the pan and they should pop out. Use a sharp knife to cut into squares.

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!

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!
