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!

Rhubarb Pineapple Pie



Forget strawberry and rhubarb. Pineapple and rhubarb are an outstanding combination and make up what is probably my favorite pie. Homemade pie dough is of course best, but premade dough that you can roll out yourself will work in a pinch. After the egg wash, don't forget to sprinkle the top of the pie with sugar before baking. Enjoy!

  2. Sounds really good. On Sunday I made a crumble. I wanted enough for 6 at supper and a couple of 2 serving ones to go in the freezer. I picked the rhubarb that was ready, had a pound of strawberries, about 2 cups of blueberries, one odd apple in the fridge and a container with about 3/4 cup of pineapple. It all went in together. I've been making crumbles for over 40 years and hubby said it was the best one I ever made. Who would have thought!!!

    1. I hope you find some good recipes to try out with it. I've had the hardest time finding rhubarb anywhere here. I finally found a little at the farmers market but the stores have had nothing :(

Chicken Doritos Casserole

I'm not even gonna pretend that this anything but what I call "Trash Food." Every once in a while trash food is the best kind of food, comforting and totally delicious. Chicken Doritos Casserole fits that description perfectly. Enjoy!

Glazed Kielbasa Pineapple Bites

I found these tasty Glazed Kielbasa Bites at Real Housemoms a few weeks back. They are incredibly quick to put together and bake. If you are feeding a large crowd go ahead and double the amount of kielbasa & pineapple. The sauce should be enough even if you double the main ingredients.

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!

Old Fashioned Ham Salad

Besides making ham and pineapple sandwiches, Ham Salad is my favorite way to use up leftover ham. For a delicious treat, serve this Ham Salad with butter crackers and slices of Swiss cheese. It is crazy delicious. Enjoy!

Cranberry Orange Bread

Moist orange quick bread studded with cranberries. Make this one the day before you plan to eat it and let it sit out overnight (covered) for the best flavor. This is the classic Ocean Spray recipe, minus the nuts as the kids prefer it that way. 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!

Moist Pineapple Banana Bread

Moist Pineapple Banana Bread takes a tropical twist on classic banana bread, using crushed pineapple and coconut. After receiving some feedback that the pineapple flavor was mild, I have added in optional pineapple extract.  For that matter, you could even add in coconut extract as well if you really want to punch up the flavor. I would probably try that out next time I made this, but if you try it before me please let me know how it turned out in the comments. If you were wondering what the black specks are in the bread, as a reader asked below, they are banana seeds. Next time you take a bite of banana, notice the small black seeds that run down the middle. Mystery solved!  Update 2016: I've noticed over the years that banana bread, more so than other breads, has a tendency to burn on the sides and bottom due to the long bake time. After researching how to fix this problem, silicone loaf pans seem to be the answer. I plan on ordering one soon and wi
