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!

Amish Meatloaf


I can't rave enough about this recipe for Amish Meatloaf. It is addicting. Did you know meatloaf could be addicting? It is!

I have tried two sweet meatloaf recipes recently. The difference between the two recipes lies in where the sweet component is. In this recipe, the brown sugar is mixed into the meat, with a basic ketchup glaze on top. My other favorite meatloaf recipe has a pineapple preserve glaze on top, so the sweet factor is primarily on top. I love them both, but if I had to choose just one favorite, it would be the Amish Meatloaf.

 Enjoy!

  9. Hi Ali:
    I'm only a 'home cook', not a chef, but I've been cooking for a long time. I thought that I've perfected Meatloaf over the years, but I'll definately make this Amish Meatloaf. It's easy to prepare, and adding the brown suger must give it a very interesting flavor. I've always added chopped green peppers to my meatloaf, but I'll make this Meatloaf just as it's written. (Don't ya' just hate it when people 'tweak' your original recipe?)

    1. Made the Amish meatloaf, but added green peppers. O my gosh!!!!!!!!!!! Wonderful. Thank you.

  10. Now, THIS is more like Mom's than any other I've seen!!! She's also used saltines sometimes. And yeah, she added the green peppers! I've never understood just pouring tomato sauce on top. That nice, thick baked ketchup is a kid's idea of DIVINE. Yum...mom served hers with mashed potatoes and peas. With a peach half stuffed with cottage cheese. Dang, girl...you've just made me really hungry.

  12. I have been making this meatloaf for over a year now. I love it. My modifications have been to add just a little a couple of tablespoons of worcestershire to the meatloaf recipe for a more rounded taste. To the topping, I add couple of tablespoons of corn syrup and brown sugar to complement the brown sugar in the meatloaf. It is delicious without adding anything. But my add-ins, make it the tops.

    1. Under every post on this website there is a green "PRINT" button that allows you pick and choose what you want to print. You can also copy and paste a recipe into a word document so that you only print the recipe. You can also simply highlight the text and choose to print the 'selected text.'

      There are a lot of options for you, but I guess instead you would rather act like a complete fool.

Chicken Doritos Casserole

I'm not even gonna pretend that this anything but what I call "Trash Food." Every once in a while trash food is the best kind of food, comforting and totally delicious. Chicken Doritos Casserole fits that description perfectly. Enjoy!

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!

Glazed Kielbasa Pineapple Bites

I found these tasty Glazed Kielbasa Bites at Real Housemoms a few weeks back. They are incredibly quick to put together and bake. If you are feeding a large crowd go ahead and double the amount of kielbasa & pineapple. The sauce should be enough even if you double the main ingredients.

Old Fashioned Ham Salad

Besides making ham and pineapple sandwiches, Ham Salad is my favorite way to use up leftover ham. For a delicious treat, serve this Ham Salad with butter crackers and slices of Swiss cheese. It is crazy delicious. Enjoy!

Cranberry Orange Bread

Moist orange quick bread studded with cranberries. Make this one the day before you plan to eat it and let it sit out overnight (covered) for the best flavor. This is the classic Ocean Spray recipe, minus the nuts as the kids prefer it that way. 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!

Moist Pineapple Banana Bread

Moist Pineapple Banana Bread takes a tropical twist on classic banana bread, using crushed pineapple and coconut. After receiving some feedback that the pineapple flavor was mild, I have added in optional pineapple extract.  For that matter, you could even add in coconut extract as well if you really want to punch up the flavor. I would probably try that out next time I made this, but if you try it before me please let me know how it turned out in the comments. If you were wondering what the black specks are in the bread, as a reader asked below, they are banana seeds. Next time you take a bite of banana, notice the small black seeds that run down the middle. Mystery solved!  Update 2016: I've noticed over the years that banana bread, more so than other breads, has a tendency to burn on the sides and bottom due to the long bake time. After researching how to fix this problem, silicone loaf pans seem to be the answer. I plan on ordering one soon and wi
