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 Scones






Delicious, tender scones with a sweet strawberry glaze. I thought these were better on day two. They held together a bit better and were nice and moist. Normally I cut scones into triangles but this time around I went with rounds and I really like the shape better. They seem to have less burnt edges this way.

I adapted a recipe found at Heather Cristo for this recipe. I simplified her recipe a bit and I loved the result. Enjoy!

Strawberry Scones
Makes 12 scones

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 8 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2/3 cups cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon cream
  • Strawberry Glaze:
  • 1 strawberry, minced (I used 2)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cream

Directions:

  1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Pulse in the cold butter until crumbly.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the egg and cream. Pulse in the cream mixture until you have a smooth, wet dough. Transfer to a floured surface and lightly form into a disc. Cut the disc into wedges or cut out circles with a cookie cutter. 
  3. Brush the tablespoon of cream on the tops of the scones.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes. Take the scones out of the oven and set them aside to cool slightly while you make the strawberry glaze.
  5. In a small bowl whisk together the strawberry, powdered sugar and cream until you have a smooth glaze. Pour 1 tablespoon of glaze over the top of each scone. Let set up and serve warm.

  1. Those scones look fantastic. Most scones I see online look dry but these look moist and I love the idea of the strawberry glaze.

  3. Ali, I love scones, and these are so pretty for Spring. ♥ I like that you used a food processor for the dough- it's how I make my pie crust. And now, it's how I make scones! ;)

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!
