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!

Soft Butterscotch Pudding Cookies

The flavor and texture of these little cookies is fantastic. Tender and soft with a ton of sweet butterscotch flavor. If you love butterscotch these are the cookies for you. Be warned, they are addictive!

Many thanks to Chelsea's Messy Apron for the recipe. Is was an instant favorite at our house. Enjoy!

Soft Butterscotch Pudding Cookies
Makes about 2 dozen (It might've been 18, I forgot to count)


  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature 
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup butterscotch pudding mix, dry
  • 1 and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cream together the butter and both sugars until creamy or about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the pudding mix, flour, baking soda, cornstarch, and salt. Stir and then slowly combine the dry and wet ingredients.
  5. Fold in the butterscotch chips.
  6. Using a cookie scoop, scoop large bits of dough onto a cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for about 8-10 minutes. By slightly under-baking the cookies, they will remain very soft and chewy. So pull them out slightly under-baked and allow to cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

  1. So excited you posted this recipe. For some weird, quirky reason, every time I go grocery shopping, I pick up a box of butterscotch pudding mix. I have no idea why. So now I have a cookie recipe to use them in! Have an amazing Week! ~Liz

  2. Is the butterscotch pudding mix regular or instant? Thanks! Looks like a must-try.

  3. I made these this week for the Barbers next to my office. They went NUTS! 🙌🏻 What an awesome recipe. I did add a tad bit of cinnamon to the batter while mixing though. Thanks for sharing!

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!
