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!

Maple Sausage Cream Cheese Crescents

This three ingredients appetizer is a huge hit at our family gatherings. Maple sausage gives these a hint of flavor. Easy to make and loved by all.

Spicy sausage would work well here, or even plain sausage as well. Go with what you like, but I urge you to try the maple variety at least once.

Warm, tasty and always one of our most popular appetizers. Enjoy!

Maple Sausage Cream Cheese Crescents
Makes about 20-24 slices depending on thickness cut

  • 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 lb. maple sausage (I like Jimmy Dean), cooked and fat drained
  • 1 package crescent rolls
  1. Open the tubes of crescent dough and lay out on a piece of parchment paper. Press the seams together so there aren't any large gaps.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the cooked maple sausage and cream cheese and stir to combine. Add the mixture evenly between the sheet of crescent dough. Roll up lengthwise into a pinwheel. Wrap tightly in parchment or plastic wrap and chill for an hour or longer.
  3. When ready to bake, preheat oven to  375-f degrees. Slice into 1/4" thick pieces and bake on a parchment lined baking sheet for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned on the edges. Let cool and transfer to a platter. (Ovens vary so check frequently once you hit the 10 minute mark. You may need to add 1-2 minutes extra.)

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!
