This past weekend I participated in a FB celebration of Brenda Novak's Love That ! Cookbook. This is part of the big charity project for diabetes research. So along with the boxed sets, including the SWEET SEDUCTION boxed set with my story WANDERLUST in it, there is also a fantastic cookbook. ALL proceeed from the boxed set and this cookbook go to charity. :)
And as part of teh celbration, I was asked to demo a recipe of my choosing from the book. It's a beautiful cookbook and I had a hard time choosing because I love to cook, but decided to go with one of my favorte things--salad.
Here are the posts from the facebook event. Just me and my makeshift selfie stick. The recipe was really tasty and easy. Let me know if you try it!
BACON LETTUCE AND TOMATO SALAD from Brenda Novak's LOVE THAT! Cookbook
3. I washed and dried my lettuce in the salad spinner. You want to make sure it’s mostly dry so the dressing will stick. And I used baby red lettuce because that’s what came in my produce co-op share this week. But any lettuce you like would work.
5. Put everything but the dressing in a bowl.
6. Mix your dressing ingredients together. My tip for that is if you have a mason jar (or tupperware container), dump everything in there, pop the lid on tight, and just shake it up (bonus points if you sing the Taylor Swift song while doing it). I find it quicker and cleaner than bothering with a bowl and a whisk. And if you have leftovers, it’s easy to store.
7. Pour your dressing on. (And applaud me for managing a selfie WHILE pouring dressing. ;) )
8. EAT! :) It was delish.
If you'd like to buy the cookbook and/or one of the boxed sets, get them now because they'll only be avaialble for a short time! : )
