Follower Friday: Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta

Remember how I love comfort food?  Well this dish that Candice makes is right down my alley of comfort food :) 
Candice is my cousin.  She's a year and a half younger than me but we might as well be twins.  We think a lot alike and everyone at college got us confused.  We loved that.  We got married within a few months of each other and our life goal would be to live next door to each other.  But I doubt I'm ever moving to Lund. :)  She's an amazing woman and mother.  And I wish we had more than Facetime.  Enjoy her recipe!
