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!

Strawberry and Citrus Salad with Orange Vinaigrette

A refreshingly light salad dressed with a citrus olive oil vinaigrette.

Strawberry and Citrus Salad with Orange Vinaigrette
Makes one large salad


  • For the vinaigrette:
  • 1/2 cup blood orange olive oil (any other citrus olive oil works, or plain olive oil if you can't find citrus)
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp. white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. stone ground mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. fox point seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • For the salad:
  • several cups of spring greens
  • sliced strawberries
  • orange segments
  • sliced red onion


  1. Add all of the vinaigrette ingredients to a small blender and blitz them until the dressing comes together. Dress the greens with the vinaigrette and top with the orange segments, sliced strawberries and sliced red onion. Serve immediately.

Recipe from my mom.

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!
