Great news: I'm giving away five copies of my latest book, "Will It Skillet?"
Talking to people, I've heard a lot of emotion surrounding cast iron: reverence, devotion — and fear. Reverence and devotion come from people who've used it for eons and have a skillet passed down from another generation. Fear comes from people who think it's hard to care for.
Let me just say: "Will It Skillet?" is for both groups. It dispels some myths of caring for cast iron, tells you how to keep it in great shape and, of course, provides irressistible and unexpected recipes.
We're talking lasagna, tortillas, apple pie, funnel cakes, and mac and cheese. Oh, and a Giant Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie. Can't forget that.
Both "Will It Waffle?" and "Will It Skillet?" contain 53 recipes and someone asked me if there was any significance to that number. It's a totally reasonable question but .... There is no mystical significance.
The idea was to provide enough recipes to get across the idea — to show people what cast iron (and the waffle iron) could do.
Fifty-three recipes seems to do the job nicely. The 54th is up to you.
