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!


Cheesy Mashed Potato Bake




My family enjoyed this Cheesy Mashed Potato Bake along with some tasty crock pot beef tips in gravy (recipe coming later in the week). I loved this side dish. I had one change to the recipe, only because I misread the instructions. I had added the shredded cheese to the mashed potato mixture, instead of reserving it for the top. I quickly grated some extra Monterey Jack to add to the top. Because of this, I had extra cheesy potatoes but as you might guess, nobody minded.

We used Monterey Jack, but you can change the cheese if you'd prefer. I would highly suggest grating the cheese yourself, as it lends itself to melted much better than pre-grated cheese sold in a bag. Many thanks to The Southern Lady Cooks for this recipe. Enjoy!

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!
