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!


Strawberry Sangria Jello


Summer is here! Today is officially the first day of Summer and as such I wanted to share a recipe I created that is refreshing in the hot Summer months ahead of us. It is sweet, a little tart, and you can make it alcoholic by simply swapping the white grape juice for your wine of choice. A strawberry white wine would be delicious for the adults. 


I got the flower mold from Wholeport, one of my sponsors. I was originally planning on trying out this mold by making a cake but the hot weather tempted me to try it out for Jello. I lightly sprayed the baking mold with a cooking spray before filling it and once it had set up I had the big test - does it actually come out of the dish easily. It did! We were actually quite surprised at how easily the jello make out of the mold and pleased that there was very little fuss to remove it.


Strawberry Sangria Jello
Makes a medium sized jello mold

  • 6 oz. package powdered strawberry jello 
  • 1 1/2 c. boiling white grape juice (Substitute wine if preferred)
  • 2 c. Sprite (1 standard can plus a little bit extra, open it 15 min before starting so the bubbles subside)
  • 2 c. diced strawberries (You can also slice then if preferred)
  • 1 c. green or red grapes, diced small
  • 1 gala or granny smith apple, core removed, diced small

1. In a large bowl dissolve the strawberry jello with the boiling grape juice. Cool 10 minutes. Stir in soda. Chill 45 minutes.

2. Fold in the diced fruit. Pour into sprayed jello mold. Chill for 4 hours. Invert onto a plate when ready to serve.
