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!

Soft Sprinkle Pudding Cookies

Soft vanilla pudding cookies packed with delightful sprinkles. When I make cookies, I almost always visit the blog Cookies and Cups. Shelly has the best cookies around. She also has a cookbook coming out which I pre-ordered the moment I heard it was available to order. Love her and her recipes. Back to the cookies!

Be sure to add the extra egg yolk or your dough will be too dry. I learned that the hard way when I misread the original recipe. You definitely don't want to skip it.

I used half basic rainbow jimmies and half Birthday Party Sprinkle Medley from the Sweetapolita Sprinkle Shop. If you haven't picked up a large cookie scoop online or in a store, it is perfect for recipes like this. I bought mine a year or two ago and I absolutely love it. The one linked is the exact one I got, which is 1.5 Tablespoons. If you want to have exactly 2 Tablespoons, which is what this recipe calls for, here is a link to one.

With all that shopping stuff done, bake up and some delicious cookies! Enjoy!

  1. My mom used to make a chocolate chip cookie recipe with pudding in it that was a favorite. I'll have to ask her to dig it up!

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
