One Week of Cooking with an Iron Skillet // Final Day

Image

Today concludes my week of cooking with an iron skillet. It has been fun to experiment with different types of recipes in my iron skillet. Last but not least, we have a skillet chocolate cake from the blog Cookies and Cups. My husband loves chocolate cake and it is my lifelong goal to find a cake that he loves more than any restaurant’s cake. This one was pretty good! The frosting is so creamy and buttery! (Maybe because it is basically all butter!! 😉 )

In case you missed anything, here are the recipes from the week:

1. German Pancake

2. Three Cheese Mac and Cheese

3. Easy No-knead Skillet Bread

4. The Classic Frittata

5. Skillet Chocolate Cake

If you made any of the recipes from this week, I would love to hear from you! What did you like best? Thanks for following along this week!

One Week of Cooking with an Iron Skillet // Day Two

“My name is Courtney, and I’m addicted to mac and cheese…” That is how the blog post about this macaroni and cheese started on Cook Like a Champion Blog. Since both of those things resonated with me, I thought that I would give this macaroni and cheese a try!

Courtney from Cook Like a Champion was right in her description of this dish!  She says:

This recipe stands on its own.  With white cheddar, Parmigiano-Reggiano and goat cheese, how could it not?  Sour cream and an egg yolk make this dish especially rich, while lemon zest (yes, you read that right) gives it a wonderful brightness I’ve never tasted in macaroni and cheese.  The addition of fresh thyme, my favorite herb, gives the mac and cheese a wonderful aroma and flavor.  The sweet onion is a welcome addition and adds texture to the pasta.  Decadent is the best way to describe this dish…

I don’t know about you, but my mouth started watering when I read that description! After trying it, the conclusion was that the recipe is delicious! However, if you a looking to lose a few pounds this recipe is not for you! This is not health food, despite my use of whole wheat pasta! Try it for yourself with the recipe below.

Tip of the Day: 

Do not wash your iron skillet with soap. It will ruin the seasoning on the pan. Use hot water and a sponge if necessary to get it clean.
