    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 Avocado……you 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!

      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.

        Thank you Carol, for such a quick response. I’d have never guessed that it was Romaine. I gave my sister your link and I’m sure she will love it as much as I am!
