Good Cook members were quick to order Lodge Cast Iron's first cookbook two years ago. This one's even better
. There are enough tantalizing recipes here to keep my three Dutch ovens and two skillets busy baking sweet and savory breads, making breakfast, simmering stew, giving meats a crisp outside and juicy interior, and frying fish to perfection.God forbid my house ever caught fire, but I'd grab my Lodge Dutch oven before I got my wedding album (but not before I scooped up the dog and shooed out my husband). With their new book's Cooking Secrets and Kitchen Notes from the pros who contributed these 175 classic and modern recipes, and the how-tos on restoring a cast iron skillet and caring for every type of pan, I'll be giving all my cast iron some serious use this year!
