I just found your recipes, and I think I've gone to heaven! One question though about the delicious looking Cheesy BLT with Colby Jack and say 1 large piece of Cos.....what is Cos? I'm sorry if I missed something that is quite apparent. Thank you so very much! Linda

Hi Linda. Glad you are enjoying the site. Cos is the long narrow leaf lettuce. Also called Romaine Lettuce. I love it because one leaf is a perfect size for a sandwich when trimmed and it lies flat.
