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!

Jalapeno Chicken Crescent Pinwheels

My notes:
-Next time around I would add shredded cheddar or pepper jack cheese for more flavor, probably 1/3 cup.
-These are best eaten the same day, as refrigerating them tends to make the crescent dough soft.

Jalapeno Chicken Crescent Pinwheels
Makes 16 pinwheels

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup chopped cooked chicken
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (I omitted)
  • 2 -3 tablespoons finely chopped sliced jalapeno chiles
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onions (2 medium)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (8 ounce) can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

1. Heat oven to 375°F In small bowl, mix all ingredients except dough until well combined; set aside.

2. Unroll dough; separate into 2 long rectangles. Place 1 rectangle on long cutting board; press perforations to seal. Spread half of cream cheese mixture on dough rectangle to within 1/2 inch of edges.

3. Starting with one long side, roll up rectangle; press seam to seal. Cut roll into 16 slices; place slices, cut side down, on ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining dough rectangle.

4. Bake at 375°F for 14 to 16 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Serve warm.

  1. These look delicious! My husband will love these, may try these for football this Sunday!

  2. Could these be made using flour tortillas and then served cold?

    1. Yep I think that would be fine. The chicken would probably have to be pretty finely chopped.

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!
