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!

Unbelievably Good Shredded Apple Pie

Shredded Apple Pie is not something I'd heard of until I tried this delicious pie. The consistency of course is different than a traditional apple pie, but the taste is different as well. Eggs in the shredded apple mixture create a really wonderful flavor. My mother commented that the texture and taste reminded her a bit of pecan pie, which I agree on.

This is a very sweet pie indeed. I think you could safely get away with cutting the sugar down to one cup, if you prefer. But I wouldn't try to reduce it too much to make it healthy. It is a sweet pie and trying to make it a non sweet, "healthy" pie sorta defeats the purpose.

I was blown away at how good this pie was. Enjoy!

  1. Love this pie! Making it again for the third time!

  2. My husband called this the "best apple pie that I have ever had!". Making again - it's a family fav!

  3. What did you use to grate the apples?

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!
