Finnish Pulla
My Finnish grandmother would be MORTIFIED to see this recipe all over the Internet, she always said the only way I could share it was if I married someone non-Finnish whose mother wanted the recipe!! As far back as I can remember, I have made this recipe with my mother and grandmother for Christmas. My mother perfected it and I am happy to carry the torch (I'm a mere 25% Finnish - Finnish enough to make cardamom bread!), especially now that both my mother and grandmother are no longer with us. This recipe is VERY close to the one we always make and has ALWAYS been a huge hit with friends and coworkers at the holidays. Everyone always asks for the recipe and we've always said "sorry, family secret." One small tweak: we always used FRESH cardamom and grind ourselves (I use a coffee grinder, my mother would put in a baggie and smash with a meat tenderizer, my favorite part besides beating the dough when I was little!). The best part is you'll have leftover cardamom to put in coffee the morning after Christmas when you enjoy a nice piece of bread with your coffee. We add a little frosting made of powdered sugar and a tiny bit of milk, drizzle over a cooled fresh loaf and garnish with sliced almonds and maraschino cherries. YUM!! Love that I am not the only Finnish American out there who enjoys this for the holidays!

Fruity Curry Chicken Salad
This recipe is absolutely FANTASTIC. I love the grocery store curry chicken salad and wanted to try my own. I also prefer a little more veggies in my chicken salad than most commercial recipes use. All I can say is... WOW. I, like many others, substituted Craisins and preferred a tad more veggies (8 green onions and 4 stalks of finely diced celery) and thought it needed a little more curry than the recipe calls for but could not believe how good this was! I poached boneless chicken breasts in lightly salted water, the salad component is such a nice complement of flavors you don't need to do much with the chicken - I bet it would be even better with a rotisserie chicken. Even without sitting in the fridge for a day I could have eaten up all of it! SO SO GOOD, try this if you like curry and you will not regret it, this is definitely a keeper! Thank you so much for posting!
