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!


Spanish Rice




I have big thanks to give Lil' Luna for posting her recipe for Spanish Rice. We have made it a few times in the past few weeks. It is easy and tastes great.

Spanish Rice
Makes 8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rice long grain
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 6 stems cilantro (optional)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 chicken flavored bouillon cube
  • dash of cumin
  • dash of garlic pepper

Directions

  1. Heat oil in large frying pan on medium heat.
  2. Add rice and cook until golden brown.
  3. Add 1 chicken flavored bouillon cube to 4 cups water and microwave for 3 minutes.
  4. When rice is brown, add water, tomato sauce, salt, garlic, cumin and garlic pepper to pan.
  5. Stir and cover pan. Let simmer for 40 minutes. to an hour. (At my high elevation of 5000ft it was done at about 35-40 minutes. I also had to add a bit more liquid.)

  1. That seems like quite a bit of oil is 3/4 cup correct?

    1. Yes it is right. It makes a HUGE amount of rice, though. What is pictured in the bowl is just a small of the total amount. This was the first time I've made this type of rice so I am not an expert, so I would suggest heading over to Lil' Luna and contacting her if you are wondering if you can reduce the oil amount.

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!
