  1. Your chicken salad recipe sounds delicious, but how in the world do I print it. Don’t see a print button anywhere. Tks Jo

    • I just updated the post with a printable recipe Joanne-thank you, I forgot to add it when I wrote the post. Please let me know if you have any problems with it!

  2. Love this recipe! When is the big move taking place? I hope you’ll continue to share recipes from across the pond! I’ve printed off many of them for use at home. Thanks Melissa!!

    • Hey Linda, we *think* we’ll be moving in early July but the Army has a way of changing things up so that’s just a hopeful assumption! I will definitely keep sharing once we move-there may end up being a lull for a while while our things are actually being shipped but if so I can try to fill that with travel pictures and new foods I’m trying! I’m excited to learn new recipes to share with you!

  3. Are you in the south? 🙂 I need a recipe for sweet tea and one for pimento cheese! My mother who is from North Carolina is turning 90 in July. She is always upset that California (where we are now) doesn’t serve sweet tea and pimento cheese can’t be found anywhere. For her birthday I want to serve pimento cheese sandwiches and sweet tea. But you might be right about the south and their “salads”. I also plan to serve egg salad, chicken salad, ham salad tea sandwiches and maybe some potato salad or “slaw” ~ Kelly in CA

    • Kelly-I’m from Charleston, SC and yes, I grew up on sweet tea and pimento cheese! I don’t drink sweet tea anymore (I’m hypoglycemic) but when I did I would brew 3 family size tea bags in two cups of water for about 3 minutes in the microwave, let it seep about 5 minutes, then combine with 1 cup of sugar and water to fill a gallon. {that’s the way my family members made it} As far as pimento cheese, let me comb through my books and see if I can perfect a recipe for you before your Mom’s B-day! I’ll message you back when I post it or at the least mail you one of my favorite recipes!

  4. This is the recipe that I use. Definitely a splurge, but OHHH so good!

    16 oz Cheddar Cheese, sharp, grated
    8 oz cream cheese
    1¼ cup mayonnaise
    4 oz pimentos
    ½ cup sour cream
    ½ tsp salt
    ½ tsp pepper
    2 tsp hot pepper sauce (I use Tabasco)

    Allow the cream cheese to come to room temperature. Pour the pimentos and their juice into a large mixing bowl. Add the sour cream and mayo and mix thoroughly with a fork. Add the pepper sauce, salt and pepper to the mixture and mix thoroughly. Add the cheddar and cream cheese and mix until thoroughly combined. Adjust the seasonings to taste. Freshly grated cheese is far superior to packaged! The cheese spread will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks—which is much longer than it will last.

    • Oh that sounds good! I’ll have to try it!! Can I share it here if I do make it? (It’s okay if you don’t want me to post it but it sounds delicious and I bet a lot of people would like it!)

      • Of course, you can share it if you like! :o) Oh, and I made your chicken salad. We just loved it! On another note, please thank your husband for his service. And thank you for your service, too. My son is also an Army guy. I know how hard deployments are on this end, both while they’re gone and sometimes even when they get back. My heart goes out to you and your family.
