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!


Chocolate Sheet Cake Cookies



We've been doing a bit of baking at my house lately. It is an activity I really enjoy because of my little 6 and 4 year old helpers. My son especially loves to help when we bake. Afterwards the kids sit down at the table with a glass of milk and a cookie or two and enjoy what they helped make. I love this small bit of daily life.

The past few weeks I have made several recipes from the blog Cookies and Cups. The few I've tried are the Banana BlondiesMarshmallow BlondiesChocolate Sheet Cake Cookies and (my post coming soon) Southern Tea Cakes. All have been delicious. Cookies and Cups is definitely my new favorite blog for baking. I hope you will stop by her blog and say hi to Shelly. Many thanks to her for all these delicious recipes!

Onto this Chocolate Sheet Cake Cookie. One of the best cookies I've ever made. The texture is just heavenly. Next time around I'd like to add a little orange zest to the cookie, or maybe even lemon zest. The glaze on top is also delicious. I realized after the fact that I should have glazed them entirely as I had quite a bit of glaze left over. Don't be afraid to coat them completely like I was.

  • Cookies:
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
  • Icing:
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. For the cookies: Preheat oven to 350°-f
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment or silicone mat, set aside.
  3. In bowl of stand mixer beat butter and sugar together until light, scraping sides frequently.
  4. Add in egg and vanilla and continue mixing until incorporated. Mix in baking powder and salt.
  5. Turn mixer to low and slowly add in flour. Dough will be thick.

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!
