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


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 Four


This morning I was up early to go to work! The Lord has provided a temporary job for me working in the office for the company that my husband and I apartment manage for. For those of you who have been following along on my blog, you know that I got laid off of my job at the end of June. So this is a big answer to prayer!

Unfortunately, that means less time to blog. So my readers get the short end of the stick this morning. I didn’t want to neglect the week of cooking with an iron skillet, but it won’t be as detailed this morning.

Up to bat today, we have the classic frittata recipe. This is a general recipe for a frittata. You can customize it with any kinds of veggies or meats. Just throw in the pan first whatever takes longest to cook. I used cauliflower, mushrooms, and tomatoes. It was delicious. It also reheats well! We reheated pieces of it the next day for a quick breakfast.

If you have cooked any of this week’s recipes, I would love to hear what you thought! Happy Thursday!

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


My husband and I are big bread people. We love it. Seriously. We consume an unhealthy amount of bread! And this was good bread. My husband even asked if we could have it again after dinner instead of dessert!! 

I liked this recipe because it is one of those throw it all in a bowl and mix it together kind of no-fuss recipes. The recipe does call for it rise twice, so it is a little time-consuming. But it is not hard to make by any means. Enjoy this recipe from Baker Bettie.


Easy No-knead Skillet Bread

It is fun to choose recipes and to have variety in our food. I was reminded yesterday that the ability to choose is a gracious gift from the Lord. It is not a right. The Lord can take away your freedom to choose any time He chooses. Relish the gift that He has given you to make decisions today.
