Cast-Iron Skillet Cooking

February 11, 2010 | By | Comments (8)

 Chadwick on set smiling Yesterday in the digital studio, we had the pleasure of filming Chadwick Boyd, of Lovely & Delicious making a corn pudding in a cast-iron skillet.  It's a recipe he learned from his southern grandmother, and the well-loved and much-used skillet is one that he was given by his grandfather.  The pudding was lovely as well as delicious, and something you could serve alongside a pan-roasted chicken in place of mashed potatoes.   I think mashed potatoes will have a hard time competing against this cheesy, rustic, fresh corn pudding. 

Cornbread-sl-257354-l I'm now inspired to get out my skillet and use it more regularly.  Typically I use it for making cornbread (photo at left), although I know that it's much more versatile and can be used on the stovetop and in the oven for everything from eggs and sausage to roasted chicken and desserts.  I married into my cast-iron skillet as my husband had one that his mother had given him.  It's well loved and well-seasoned.  If you have one, get it out and give it some love. Watch our video on seasoning a cast-iron skillet if yours needs a little TLC, and let me know about your favorite cast-iron skillet recipes

    If you are trying to lose weight, the most effective and safe approach is through moderate portions of all the food groups, including fruits, vegetables, and grains. Limiting calorie intake and increasing physical activity will lead to healthy habits that can be maintained for a lifetime. Diets continually fail us because they are not created for the long road of life. Only by changing lifestyle habits are you sure to lose the weight, keep it off, and be rewarded with optimal health and longevity.

    Aw, this was a really quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done

    Appreciating the time and effort you put into your website and detailed information you provide. It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed information. Great read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

    Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My website goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    Howdy, I believe your site might be having internet browser compatibility problems. Whenever I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, wonderful blog!

    The next time I read a blog, Hopefully it doesn’t disappoint me just as much as this one. After all, I know it was my choice to read through, however I actually thought you’d have something helpful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could possibly fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.
