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!

Burgers with Zesty Cream Cheese Pimento Spread

One of the most popular recipes at our recent birthday party was this cream cheese pimento spread. It adds a ton of flavor to an already tasty grilled burger. I felt this would be equally as good on a grilled hot dog but I haven't tried that out yet. Enjoy!

Zesty Cream Cheese Burger Spread
Makes about 1 cup


  • 8 oz. whipped cream cheese, softened
  • 2 TB. mayo
  • 4 oz. jar diced pimientos, drained
  • 1/4 c. fresh chopped cilantro (I subbed 1 Tbsp. dried but fresh is preferred)
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper


  1. Mix cream cheese and mayo until smooth and blended. Stir in the remaining ingredients and spread directly on the bread before adding other condiments and toppings. Refrigerate leftovers.

Slightly adapted from Hope In Every Season.


  1. Yum! I've never put cream cheese on a burger, but I can't see why it wouldn't be delicious!

    1. I've had the dill pickle cream cheese spread from the blog here on a hot dog and it was amazing!

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!
