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!

Pizza Roll-Ups






The whole family loved these tasty Pizza Roll-Ups, recipe courtesy of My Kitchen Escapades. I will admit I have been resistant to make pizza dough at home but the recipe used (a Martha Stewart recipe) was a piece of cake to make.

They came together quickly and the kids had fun helping by adding the cheese and mini pepperoni. They also taste great as leftovers, either warmed up or eaten cold for those of you, like myself, that enjoy cold pizza. Enjoy!

Pizza Roll-Ups
Makes 12 rolls

Ingredients
  • for the pizza dough:
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1 T yeast
  • 1 C warm water
  • 1 1/2 T olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 3/4 C - 3 1/4 C flour
  • for the pizza:
  • 1 small can of tomato sauce (I used probably 1/3 of a cup of sauce from a squeeze bottle I had left over in the fridge)
  • 1/4 C freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 6 ounces grated mozzarella cheese
  • Toppings such as pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions, peppers (optional)
  • salt and pepper
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • Italian seasoning
Directions
  1. For Pizza Dough: Mix together yeast, sugar, water, oil and 1 C of flour in your mixer.  Allow yeast to activate, then add salt and enough remaining flour for a soft dough to form.  Knead in your mixer for 5 minutes. Cover dough and allow to rise until double.
  2. To prepare pizza: After the dough has risen, roll the dough on a lightly floured counter top into a 18×12″ rectangle.
  3. Spread on the tomato sauce (as thick or thin as you would like) then season it well by sprinkling the top with the salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and Italian seasoning.
  4. Sprinkle on the Parmesan cheese, then the mozzarella cheese.  If you are adding any toppings, add those after both the cheeses.  Starting on the long side, roll up the dough into a tight log.  Cut into 12 even pieces and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet.  Allow to rise for about 15 minutes, covered.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes in a preheated 475 degree oven until the rolls are lightly browned.  Serve warm. (Or cold, if that is your thing.)

  4. How fun, I'm adding this to the list to make. I've also been surprised at how easy it is to make pizza dough- it sounds intimidating but it's really just about time for the rising (s).

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!

Glazed Kielbasa Pineapple Bites

I found these tasty Glazed Kielbasa Bites at Real Housemoms a few weeks back. They are incredibly quick to put together and bake. If you are feeding a large crowd go ahead and double the amount of kielbasa & pineapple. The sauce should be enough even if you double the main ingredients.

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!

Old Fashioned Ham Salad

Besides making ham and pineapple sandwiches, Ham Salad is my favorite way to use up leftover ham. For a delicious treat, serve this Ham Salad with butter crackers and slices of Swiss cheese. It is crazy delicious. Enjoy!

Cranberry Orange Bread

Moist orange quick bread studded with cranberries. Make this one the day before you plan to eat it and let it sit out overnight (covered) for the best flavor. This is the classic Ocean Spray recipe, minus the nuts as the kids prefer it that way. 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!

Moist Pineapple Banana Bread

Moist Pineapple Banana Bread takes a tropical twist on classic banana bread, using crushed pineapple and coconut. After receiving some feedback that the pineapple flavor was mild, I have added in optional pineapple extract.  For that matter, you could even add in coconut extract as well if you really want to punch up the flavor. I would probably try that out next time I made this, but if you try it before me please let me know how it turned out in the comments. If you were wondering what the black specks are in the bread, as a reader asked below, they are banana seeds. Next time you take a bite of banana, notice the small black seeds that run down the middle. Mystery solved!  Update 2016: I've noticed over the years that banana bread, more so than other breads, has a tendency to burn on the sides and bottom due to the long bake time. After researching how to fix this problem, silicone loaf pans seem to be the answer. I plan on ordering one soon and wi
