Shhh, don’t tell Ken but I’ve fallen in love with another. A big, hefty strong fella that can handle the heat. Can you guess who “he” is?

Given up? Need another hint? His initials are C.I.S.

Cast Iron Skillet.

I LOVE my cast iron skillet. I can make just about anything in it. It perfectly cooks all foods that I’ve ever made it it (yes, even rice, cheese-sauce and appetizer dips!). It’s great for making one skillet meals. It can safely go from stovetop to oven. It’s become my go-to skillet. Seriously. I’m giving all of my other skillets to my mom because I don’t use them anymore!

BUT, despite all of this talk of cast iron skillets, all of the recipes in this one skillet meals collection can be made in ANY skillet! If the recipe calls for baking or broiling in your oven, be sure to use an oven-safe skillet. Cast iron is always oven-safe but many others are oven-safe as well. I hope you enjoy these recipes. ♥︎
