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!

Fiesta Corn Dip

A quick and tasty appetizer. It is good with chips or crackers but fritos tend to hold up the best since they are extra thick. If you would like it to be heavy on the corn, go ahead and add a second can. Many thanks to Sweet Little Bluebird for the original recipe which I adapted slightly.

Fiesta Corn Salsa
Makes several cups


  • 1 (15 oz.) can corn, drained 
  • 1 orange or yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 3/4 cup Mayonnaise (regular or light)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

  • 1 small bunch Green Onions, chopped (approximately 1/2 cup)
  • 1 small bunch Cilantro, chopped (I used about 1 tsp. dried)
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • Optional: chopped jalapenos 


1. Mix all of the ingredients together.  Chill in fridge for several hours.  Serve with tortilla chips, crackers or Fritos.

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!

Chicken Doritos Casserole

I'm not even gonna pretend that this anything but what I call "Trash Food." Every once in a while trash food is the best kind of food, comforting and totally delicious. Chicken Doritos Casserole fits that description perfectly. 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!
