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.


Pistachio & Coconut Cream Marshmallow Salad

Lovers of the traditional Watergate Salad will want to try my recipe for Pistachio & Coconut Cream Marshmallow Salad. Instead of solely using pistachio pudding I combined a box of pistachio and a box of delicious coconut cream jello. The result is absolutely delicious. Portion them out into little dishes and if you'd like, garnish with a bright red maraschino cherry. Enjoy!

Pistachio & Coconut Cream Marshmallow Salad
Makes about 12 servings


  • 1 box (3.4 oz.) instant pistachio jello (not prepared)
  • 1 box (3.4 oz.) instant coconut cream jello (not prepared)

  • 1 container (16 oz.) cool whip, thawed
  • 2 to 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • maraschino cherries for garnish, optional


  1. Combine the pistachio and coconut cream jello with the pineapple. Mix well. Add the thawed cool whip and mix well. Fold in the mini marshmallows. Chill several hours in the fridge. To garnish, top with a maraschino cherry.

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.

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!
