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!


Jack-o'-lantern Cheeseburger Pie


Though it may look a little garish, this Jack-o'-lantern Cheeseburger Pie is a delicious, kid friendly food and perfect for a spooky Halloween party.


Slice it up with a pizza cutter and serve. The crust held up better than I expected, but that might vary depending on what brand you use. I use Pillsbury premade refrigerated pie crusts that you unroll on the counter.


It does look a bit spooky, but trust me, it tastes great. Everyone at our party loved this. Enjoy!

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!
