Favorites Cookbook

To purchase a copy of one of the best cookbooks ever go to this link.

It is a fabulous cookbook, and you can feel good purchasing one because it is for a good cause. I am actually making the lemon chicken recipe from this book for our dinner tonight. The salads in this book are to die for. Everything I have ever made in this book is so good. Here is a sample salad recipe.

Book Club Chicken Salad

6 to 8 Chicken Breasts

Cook chicken breasts for 30 min at 350 degrees. Cool and cut into small pieces. (I cooked the chicken in a frying pan on top of the stove.)

Sugared Almonds:

8 oz. slivered almonds
4 tbsp. sugar

In small skillet, sprinkle sugar over almonds and cook over medium heat until almonds are coated and sugar has dissolved.

2 bags European blend salad mix (I just used romaine.)
1 head iceberg lettuce, torn into pieces
1 lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 cup craisins
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese


½ red onion, or less if onion is large
2 cups sugar
4 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. salt
1 cup red wine vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)
2 cups vegetable oil.

For dressing, finely chop red onion in food processor. Add sugar, dry mustard, salt and vinegar and bled until frothy. Slowly add oil. Toss chicken, lettuce, bacon, craisins, and cheese together in a large salad bowl. Add dressing and toss to coat. Sprinkle sugared almonds on top and serve.
