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!

Triple Citrus Yellow Cake with Lemon Curd Frosting

This citrusy, flavorful yellow cake starts with a cake mix and is topped with a light whipped frosting mixed with a tart lemon curd.

Feel free to use your favorite from scratch yellow cake recipe and proceed with this recipe if you have a problem with cake mixes, but I really don't mind them every once in a while for a quick sweet fix.


Triple Citrus Yellow Cake with Lemon Curd Frosting
Makes a 9x13-inch cake

  • For cake:
  • 1 box moist yellow cake mix plus all ingredients on the back of the box (eggs, oil or water)
  • 1 additional egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon orange oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon lime oil
  • For topping:
  • 12 ounce container Cool Whip (This is the medium size tub, check the packaging to be sure)
  • 1/2 cup (8 ounces) lemon curd, use more if you'd like a more tart flavor 
  • optional garnish: fresh lemon, orange or lime zest
  1. Prepare the cake according to box mix instructions but add an additional egg to however many the box calls for. This will make the cake more rich. Add the three citrus oils to the prepared batter and gently stir to combine. Bake and cool as directed on the box.
  2. Prepare the frosting. Mix the Cool Whip with the lemon curd, stirring very well to combine. Frost the cake. Chill for several hours and serve. Garnish with zest if using.

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!
