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.


Classic Candied Sweet Potatoes

Normally at our Thanksgiving dinner we make plain smashed sweet potatoes. This year, though, I wanted to make these Classic Candied Sweet Potatoes that are sliced and baked in a sweet brown sugar and butter sauce.

The sauce itself is very thin and even after baking it doesn't thicken up much. It really is just a thin glaze. I mention this as I read reviews of the original recipe that seemed to assume that this sauce would be syrupy thick and cling to the sweet potatoes. This is not that type of sauce. It is sweet yes, but not overly so, which I prefer. Enjoy!

Thanksgiving has passed but I wanted to show some new recipes we made this year. The Jello mold above has an eggnog layer on the bottom,which I found to be so cute and festive. I'll be posting the recipes very shortly, then it is onto Christmas!

Cheddar Pecan Cheese Ring with Strawberry Preserves - this is a very popular recipe at our house. Might seem strange but it is incredibly delicious.

Brined Turkey with Orange Tangerine Glaze
Notes: We used this Turkey Brine from The Pioneer Woman. For the glaze we used 1 cup of orange-tangerine juice with 1/4 cup sugar, reduced it down till it was syrupy then added 1/4 tsp. crushed sage. Brush it on your turkey when it is almost done baking.
