Secret to no one, my cast iron pan is my favorite cooking utensil.  I’m a huge supporter of cast iron cookware, and firmly believe that with one of these beauties on your stove you’ll never need another pan.  Here are the recipes to prove it. Also see the different installments of The Cast Iron Chronicles, a series that documents the restoration of a badly rusted cast iron pan.
