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!

Easy Rhubarb Sweet Rolls

Thanks to my big brother, I have quite a few large bags of rhubarb in my freezer. Thank goodness for that, because the last year or two there has not been any rhubarb to be found at my local grocery stores. I'm not sure why that is, but it is nowhere to be found.

These sweet and tart rolls are a cinch to make, albeit a little messy. Be sure to line your baking pan with parchment paper to make clean up a breeze and it also ensures that the rolls don't stick. Pre-cut parchment paper is one of my favorite kitchen indulgences. They are just so handy.

Easy Rhubarb Sweet Rolls |

The recipe calls for a tube of crescent rolls. Normally I am not a fan of canned crescent dough, but with this recipe it works out perfectly. Saves you a bunch of time and I always seem to have an extra tube or two in the fridge needing to be used up.

These are best served the same day they are made. I made my glaze fairly thick, but feel free to make it thinner if you prefer. Many thanks to Young, Broke and Hungry for the original recipe. Enjoy!

Print Friendly Recipe

  • For the filling:
  • 1 to 1 1/3 cups rhubarb, chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • For the crescents:
  • 1 tube crescent rolls (8 rolls)
  • Butter for spreading
  • For the glaze:
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons half and half or heavy cream
  1. In a nonstick skillet, combine 1/4 cup water with 1/2 cup sugar over medium heat. Cook until sugar dissolves. Add the rhubarb and simmer until very thick. About 10 minutes. Mash the rhubarb with a fork and scrape down the skillet sides. Fold in cornstarch and vanilla extract. Let cool.
  2. When ready to continue, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. On top of a piece of parchment paper, carefully unroll crescent rolls into a rectangle. Press together seams of all 8 rolls to get a smooth surface. Spread with a small amount of softened butter.
  4. Scoop out 1/2 cup of rhubarb from skillet and spread it in the middle of the dough. Make sure to leave an 1 inch border on all sides.
  5. Starting at the short end, tightly roll crescent rolls back into a roll, pressing together seams as needed. Slice into 8 rolls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake for about 10 minutes or until browned. Prepare glaze.
  7. In a small bowl, whisk butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract and heavy cream. Drizzle onto hot rolls.


  1. Great pictures! I can see the focus improvements!

  2. I made these using premade puff pastry dough. Also made a batch using a combination of Nutella and peanut butter.....both were absolutely amazing!

  3. Do you use all the rhubarb mixture or only 1/2 cup.

    1. Divide the rhubarb mixture into 8 portions for this recipe. I'll have to go back and remake this as I am not sure that the amount of 1/2 cup is correct. The website the recipe came from is taken down so I can't double check it just yet. I'll try to remake this recipe this week and let you know.

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!

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!

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.

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
