Chicken Pecan Salad

This is one of my favorite salads and I’ve been making it for years.  I tried to see if any country in Europe makes a salad like this and the nearest one I could find was in France but they use almonds not pecans and different cheese.  However, my research on French salads actually opened up a new discovery about France and their salads and I’m so excited to try out more salads from this country, so be on the lookout!

There’s nothing like creamy potatoes on cold winter days, it just seems to warm you up inside and out.  The Irish are famous for their potatoes and make a lot of delicious recipes with them.  A creamy potato dish is an Irish classic; however I’ve adapted it somewhat ~ instead of using whole cream and half and half I use sour cream and cream of chicken soup then pair it with left over ham. I’ve been feeding my family of seven this dish for over 25 years and it’s still a winner!

Swiss Chocolate-Berry Cake

This cake is to die for.  I love how European cakes are not as sweet as American cakes. The frosting and berries on top of this cake is just the right combination for a delicious dessert.  Enjoy!















This cake makes for 9 decent size slices baked in an 8 x 8 baking dish.
