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!

Rocky Mountain Gorgonzola Potatoes

I have a recipe today that is going straight to my list of favorite recipes of 2015. Tender, roasted and seasoned potatoes served hot with a creamy gorgonzola sauce on top. My mom saw a similar recipe online, not sure where exactly but she came up with this recipe and it is fantastic. Simple and amazingly delicious. Enjoy!

Rocky Mountain Gorgonzola Potatoes
Makes about 6 servings

For the potatoes:

  • 3 pounds Idaho potatoes, washed and cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 vidalia onion, dice into 1" pieces
  • 4 Tbsp. vegetable oil, or enough to coat the potatoes liberally
  • Penzeys Rocky Mountain Seasoning (Alternatively use a mix of salt, pepper, onion powder and Parmesan cheese-- but the seasoning mix from Penzeys is the best choice.)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  1. Toss the potato pieces, onion, vegetable oil and seasoning together. Spread evenly on a parchment lined pan. Roast the potatoes at 400-f degrees until brown on edges and cooked through.

For the gorgonzola sauce:
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 2-3 Tbsp. milk (amount varies, you want the sauce thick but pourable)
  • 1/3 c. gorgonzola crumbles
  1. Mix the mayo and milk with a whisk into a thick, pourable consistency. Stir in the gorgonzola. Spoon over hot potatoes.

  1. What is the Benefit of having your recipes if I cannot save them to anything I belong to Pinterest and keep all my recipe there , I will need to unscribe to you if I cannot keep recipes.

    1. There are Pin It buttons under every post if you look carefully. If you hover over an image there should be a button that pops up on the top left part of the image that you can click to pin to pinterest. Please let me know if this button isn't working for you -- I recently changed my site design and may have to add it back. On my screen it is showing up though. Finally just as a heads up, Pinterest has a button you can add to your hotbar so that you can pin any image from any site even if they don't have a pin it button that pops up. I would look into that if you have troubles finding the pin it buttons. Take care.

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.

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!
