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!


Grape & Ginger Ale "Chunky" Punch


For my Mardi Gras party I was looking for a dark purple punch that would compliment the traditional mardi gras colors of purple, yellow and green. I came across a video recipe for Grape & Ginger Ale Punch by Sister Felicia. I loved the story she told of her grandmother making this punch and I recommend you watch the video as well.


I call this delicious drink "chunky" punch as it contains crushed pineapple and cherries, which give you a bit of something to chew on as you drink this.



The color turned out beautiful and everyone enjoyed it. Many thanks to Sister Felicia for this recipe. Enjoy!





Grape & Ginger Ale "Chunky" Punch

Ingredients:

  • 1 bottle (2 quarts) Welch's Grape Juice chilled 
  • 1 2 liter bottle "Canada Dry" Ginger Ale chilled 
  • 1 10 oz jar Maraschino Cherries with juices 
  • 1 10 oz can of crushed pineapple with juices 
  • For ice cubes:
  • extra maraschino cherries
  • extra ginger ale (or you could use juice, such as pineapple or grape)

Directions:

  1. Prepare the ice cubes: Add a maraschino cherry to each ice cube tray compartment. Fill about 2/3 of the way with ginger ale soda. Don't fill to the top as the soda will expand as it freezes. Freeze and store until ready to use. Alternatively you could use juice instead of soda.
  2. Add the cherry ice cubes to a punch bowl. Combine all punch ingredients to the punch bowl and stir gently. 

Recipe from Sister Felicia.

  2. I would like to deeply thank you for the wonderful variety of recipes you have for non-alcoholic beverages. So many places I have searched expect me to remove the alcohol and hope things still turn out tasting well. It has been a great frustration. I will be sure to share this information with m recipe seeking friends. Thank you and have a great day.

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!
