my new online cookbook

So I love baking, cooking, etc and so over the past couple of years I have been trying to make a cookbook, and now I have officially started. The link to my cookbook is here. I am gathering recipes that I find on blogs, the internet, food network, family and friends. So if you have any recipes that you think I should try, please email them to me If I post a picture from an internet site I will definitely give credit, otherwise they should all be mine:)

I am going to try this recipe tonight for dinner from sisters cafe

BBQ Chicken Salad-Picture from original blog

A recipe from that I am going to try out..yum!

BBQ Chicken Salad
I love this salad! Talk about easy, fresh tasting, and delicious. It really hit the spot with my family last night. You can make it super fast if you bake the tortilla strips and cook the chicken early in the afternoon. Then all you have to do when you're ready to eat is chop some veggies, open a few cans and toss together a delicious salad! (I had to laugh when I saw this picture... where is the chicken?! The main ingredient is hidden beneath the cheese and tortilla strips but it's there, I promise!)
Southwestern BBQ Chicken Salad
submitted by Brittany
2 large chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1 cup BBQ sauce
1/2 head Romaine lettuce, chopped
1/2 head Iceberg lettuce, chopped
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
4 Roma tomatoes, diced
2 Haas avocados, diced
shredded cheese, Mexican blend or cheddar
crispy tortilla strips
Stir shredded chicken in with the BBQ sauce until well coated. Of course you can use less or more sauce, it's up to you! I like quite a bit since I love the smoky flavor of BBQ sauce in a salad. Toss together the lettuce, cilantro, corn, beans, and chopped veggies. Top with shredded chicken, cheese and crispy tortilla strips. Drizzle ranch or cilantro lime dressing over salad and enjoy!
*to make crispy tortilla strips simply slice about 10 corn tortillas in narrow strips and place on cookie sheet. Spray with vegetable oil cooking spray and sprinkle generously with salt. Place under the broiler and let bake until crispy and brown around the edges. (Thanks Mel for teaching me how to make these...they add a wonderful crunch to a salad!)

I will definitely give credit to the pictures if I use them. For the most part they are my creations. If I haven't tried the recipe yet, I will post a link to the site where I get it:) Thanks for the advice:) Pretty much this is for me, and if it ever got weird I will just make it private. I just want all my recipes typed up, FINALLY:):):)
