It's warm weather time and that means we are all cleaning off our grills and getting other summer cooking started. I love cast iron and have collected many recipes to enjoy food done on the stove top and in the oven.
Cast iron is great to cook on summer, fall winter or spring. Check out the recipes our members have shared over the years and add your own.

I could do a bag of chicken and small bag of frozen shrimp at $10 allowance... 5lb bag of red potatoes at $2 allowance and the onions, garlic and mushrooms @ $3 ... that's $15 and what that meal would come to with tax here I am sure. Then you gotta tip lol"

Easy skillet apple pie
My favorite way to use cast iron is very simple. I fry cornbread in it. I like to put onions in the batter, then drop by the tablespoonful into hot grease in a cast iron skillet. It doesn't take long to cook like that, so you can make it at the last minute.
It might be a cross between hushpuppies and cornbread, I don't know. Mom used to make it that way sometimes and she cooked southern style.
