Southern Cast Iron Cookbook Giveaway—Come Get Your Prize!

/ Wednesday, May 28, 2014




What's your favorite tool in your kitchen? I have a few but my cast-iron skillet is definitely the one I use most often. It's the pan I grab for making the perfect steak, crisp roast chicken, even fruit cobblers and giant cookies! 

The truth is, cast-iron cooking makes me feel like a good ol' American lady. I love a pan with history! For example, my family has skillets passed down through generations, perfectly slicked by decades of bacon grease and butter. I mean, does it get any better than that?

Well! Today Hoffman Media is giving away copies of their new cookbook Southern Cast Iron: Heirloom Recipes for Your Favorite Skillets to two Food & Femininity readers to help kick off a long fabulous summer of Americana cooking. Super exciting! I've been eyeing a few tempting recipes, like Blueberry Crumb Skillet Cake and Cheddar-Chile Hush Puppies...

To Enter The Food & Femininity / Cookbook Giveaway: 
3. Leave a comment on this post telling us what you love to cook in your cast-iron skillet.

  1. I'd love to try my hand at some good ol' fashioned skillet corn bread (I've been making it the Yankee way-- in a regular pan-- eek)

  2. Ha! I make "Yankee Cornbread", too @Kim Blank But if we had more than one cast-iron skillet in our tiny apartment, I'd definitely make it in there all of the time :) xo

    I love to cook catfish in my cast iron skillet! It's a Southern dish my mom taught me when I was a little girl :)

    I don't have a cast iron pan yet! It was on my Christmas list but everyone overlooked it in favor of more fun gifts on my list! I want to make Dutch baby pancakes, I want to make fried chicken, I want to just stare at it and think about all the things I could make with it! :)
