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!


Smoked Salmon Dip with Bagel Chips


With smoked salmon, capers and red onion, this dip is a twist on the classic bagel and lox.


Personally I would err on the side of leaving this dip a bit too chunky than too smooth, but that is my preference.  Serve this with bagel chips and you are all set to go. Enjoy!



Smoked Salmon Dip with Bagel Chips
Makes 1 1/3 cups

Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon red onion, diced small
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared horseradish (you can use coarse grain mustard as a substitute)
  • 2 ounces plus 2 more ounces thinly sliced smoked salmon, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • Bagel chips, for serving
Directions:
  1. In a food processor, combine mayonnaise, cream cheese, capers, red onion, lemon juice, horseradish, and 2 ounces smoked salmon. Process until smooth, about 20 seconds. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in remaining 2 ounces smoked salmon. Top with fresh parsley and serve with bagel chips.

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!
