Formatting Helps

Photos are a plus, upload them first.
The Title is the name of the recipe.
Bold any subsections (i.e. sauce, dry ingredients, etc.).
Use default font sizes, etc.
Each step should be a new paragraph; don't use the bullets or numbers.
Avoid abbreviations, such as tsp. or oz. Just type the word out.

Autumn Chopped Salad

also known as The Salad Becca Makes That Denise Loves.
from Espresso & Cream.

6 to 8 cups chopped romaine lettuce
2 medium pears, chopped
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup chopped pecans (or candied pecans)
8 slices thick-cut bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled
4 to 6 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
Poppy seed salad dressing (I like Brianna's)
Balsamic vinaigrette (I like Ken's Lite Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette)

On a large platter, combine the lettuce, pears, cranberries, pecans, bacon and feta cheese. Drizzle generously with poppy seed dressing, followed by some vinaigrette. (I use about 60 percent poppy seed and 40 percent vinaigrette.) Feel free to experiment with the combination.
