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!


Mardi Gras Party + King Arthur Flour King Cake Mix


We had a small celebration for Mardi Gras this year. The kids, grandma and I made a king cake which I think turned out delicious. Along with the king cake we made a pretty dark purple punch.

I got a mix from King Arthur Flour this year. For as much as I mention KAF you'd think I was being paid to promote the, but I am not. Onto the King Cake Mix. Right now they have the price listed at $12.99 but a few weeks ago when I bought it, it was a whopping $19.99. Not exactly cheap when you add in $8 shipping.


As you can see there is a thick almond filling running through the cake which I happen to love. The quality of the sprinkles was outstanding. They have such a deep, vibrant color.

I probably could have baked it for another 5 minutes but as I have mentioned, my oven is a bakers worst nightmare. It runs hot, it's uneven and to boot we are at a very high altitude. So I try my best and cross my fingers when it comes to baked goods.


The kids helped decorate the cake. Even though we had some mistakes with the glaze, I thought it turned out very pretty. All in all it was a tasty cake mix. I don't know that I'd fork over $30 next year just to make it, but I like to try things out from KAF at least once.

Of the other mixes I've tried, the Yuletide Cheer Scone Mix (their holiday scone mix) was outstanding, along with Cranberry & Orange Muffin Mix and a Butternut Squash & Apple Bountiful Soup Mix.




I realized this week that I need to pick up a much smaller punch bowl for our little parties. Hopefully I'll be able to pick up something soon.


This delicious grape punch recipe will be coming soon! I hope you had a great Mardi Gras!

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!
