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!


Cherry Topped Coconut Macaroons


Cherry Topped Coconut Macaroons are one of my all time favorite Christmas treats. The traditional Eagle Brand recipe is used, with one change- no almond extract. In such a small treat I find the almond overpowering, and this is coming from an almond lover.


Chewy, moist, lots of delicious flavors. Enjoy!

Cherry Topped Coconut Macaroons
Makes about 4 dozen

Ingredients:

  • 1 (14 oz.) can Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 large egg white, beaten
  • 1 (14 oz.) package (5 1/3 cups) flaked coconut
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • maraschino cherries
Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 325°F. Line baking sheets with foil. Spray foil with flour no-stick cooking spray.
  2. Combine sweetened condensed milk, egg white, coconut and vanilla in large bowl; mix well. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets. Top each cookies with a whole cherry. (I got about 3 dozen since I used more like heaping teaspoonfuls.)
  3. Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until lightly browned around edges. Immediately remove from baking sheets to wire rack. Macaroons will stick if allowed to cool on baking sheet.

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!
