New Toys

I love having new toys for my kitchen, and I have needed a few things for a while now. There were several I got for Christmas. One of the things I got was a new griddle so I can make more things at once. I hate eating hot food cold, and by the time I get everything done I usually have at least one thing cold. The other item I needed were some new pans. I needed new non stick pans so I can start working on more healthy foods. The new pans are non stick anodized pans. They work great, and I do not have to worry about all the oil that is unnecessary. This next coming week I will be adding a Breville Panini press and grill to my collection.


Why I Love Cast Iron

My favorite kind of pans to use are cast iron pans in every shape and size. For the most part I stick to only those except on occasion. I have found cast iron to be the most helpful for many reasons. They are a versatile cookware. I can use my cast iron fry pan for frying, sautéing, gravies, and making deep dish pizzas; since you can put them in the oven. I truly love a pan that can do so many things without having to have one pan for each task. Though it can do so many things, I have a 10 & 12 inch fry pan, a pizza pan, a chicken fryer (which I treat like a dutch oven until I get my large dutch oven), and a deep dish lasagna pan, but that one is enameled.
