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!


Soft & Chewy Rum Crinkle Cookies


This Christmas I was all about the rum and eggnog flavors. I loved this wonderfully soft Rum Crinkle Cookie. They are sweet, soft and chewy, and packed full of that wonderful rum flavor.


If you are a fan of the butter rum flavoring in desserts, you will love this cookie.


Enjoy!


Notes: I skipped rolling my cookies in the sugar just to save some time on a busy Christmas cookie baking day. They turned out delicious without it, but I'm sure they are just as good with it, too. I used a concentrated Butter Rum Oil by Lorann Oils. Keep in mind if you use a concentrated oil that they are stronger than regular rum extract. In my case they were 4 times as strong, so I had to reduce the amount down to 1/4 of what was called for.

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!
