Friday's Freebie: Who Wants a Truly Fabulous Cookbook?

Book Give Away! Do you own cast iron cookware? That's about all I use in the kitchen. If you're a fan, you're gonna LOVE this cookbook. With recipes like... HOT LAVA CHOCOLATE CAKE what's not to love?

Friday's Freebie: Who Wants a Truly Fabulous Cookbook?

Veggies, eggs & more are hiding 'neath the cornbread.

A few years ago, when I was struggling with anemia, I tossed a question out into the blogosphere, asking people for advice.
Some brilliant commenter suggested I try cooking with cast iron cookware, claiming that simple switch could help my condition.
An easy enough experiment, I had plenty of cast iron cookware packed away downstairs, with the rest of my camping gear. Though it had never occurred to me to use these skillets in the kitchen.
I've always felt warm and fuzzy about cast iron cookware. It's kind of a throwback to Grandma's kitchen. Which is how I inherited mine. So, I gave it a shot. And my anemia disappeared ~ though I don't really know if it's because of the iron in the cookware. Or, the fact that the cookware inspired healthier eating. I spent way more time in the kitchen, concocting all kinds of yummy dishes. (This one is my fave.)
Friday's Freebie: Who Wants a Truly Fabulous Cookbook?
The LODGE CAST IRON Cookbook
A Treasury of Timeless, Delicious, American Dishes
As fellow bloggers, I imagine you're experiencing this, too.. Every day I receive an email from some company asking me to read and review their product. Now don't get me wrong. I LOVE the fact that bloggers are finally getting the attention they deserve, but some of those requests are downright ridiculous...
That is not the case with The Lodge. I can (happily) sing their praises because these cast iron skillets are the exact same quality as the crème de la crème Le Creuset ~ for a fraction of the cost. (And, I'd be lost without 'em.)

HOT LAVA CHOCOLATE CAKE
Not just for campfires any more.
  • 2 oz. square semisweet chocolate
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 confectioners' sugar
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 large egg yolk, lightly beaten
  • 9 teaspoons flour
Melt chocolate and butter, stir in the sugar. Add eggs; then flour. Spray a small cast iron skillet (so this delightful mess doesn't stick.) Pour in this ooey-gooey goodness. Bake over hot campfire coals for 15-18 minutes. Or, in the oven at 350 (F) for approximately the same amount of time. (Use a toothpick to determine if it's done.)
Serves 4 normal people, or one uncontrollable choco-holic. {That would be me.}

The Lodge gave me this cookbook to read and review and now I'm giving it to you. Leave a comment here, on Facebook, or on Twitter to be entered into the drawing.
