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!

Tomato Cheese Delights

As we are slowly but surely moving along towards spring and summer, I find that our household craves more fresh vegetables. Tomato Cheese Delights are the perfect appetizer or side dish featuring ripe tomatoes topped with garlic mayo spread and freshly shredded cheese.

Freshly shredded cheese is the key here. Pre-shredded cheese simply will not cut it for this recipe. Since the recipe is so simple with such few ingredients, it is important to use the quality ingredients. It is worth the effort, I promise. Enjoy!

Tomato Cheese Delights
Makes 2-4 servings

  • 4 vine ripened tomatoes
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) freshly shredded cheddar cheddar (It is important that it is freshly shredded)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped Italian parsley
  1. In a bowl, mix mayonnaise, garlic, black pepper and Italian parsley. Chill until ready to use.
  2. Slice the tomatoes and let drain for 10 minutes on paper towels. (I would recommend placing a paper towel both on top and underneath)
  3. After the slices have drained, spread the mayonnaise mixture over each tomato slice. Top generously with shredded cheddar cheese. Arrange on a serving plate and serve.

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!
