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!


Butterscotch Cashew Haystacks


Crunchy, sweet and creamy are how I would describe these tasty Butterscotch Cashew Haystacks. The cashew is a new addition I had never tried before, but it added a lot of flavor to the recipe.


This is an easy recipe to make with kids. I added just a touch of shortening so that the butterscotch chips melt really nice and smooth. As you can see, even with the tiny addition of 1 tsp. of shortening, the haystacks set up very nicely and the candy coating is smooth. Enjoy!


Butterscotch Cashew Haystacks
Makes about 15 servings

Ingredients:
  • 11 oz. bag butterscotch chips
  • 1 tsp. shortening
  • 5 oz. can chow mein noodles
  • 1 cup cashews
Directions:
  1. In a microwave safe dish, add the butterscotch chips and shortening together. Heat in 15 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until melted. Stir well until glossy and smooth. 
  2. Add the chow mein noodles and cashews and gently stir well until thoroughly coated with the butterscotch.
  3. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto parchment paper and allow to set up. After they have set up, store in a tupperware at room temperature.

  1. Not big butterscotch fans in this house, could I substitute chocolate chips?

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!
