I came across this great tutorial the other day via Pinterest! They show you how to step by step recondition old cast iron cookware. It looks really easy! Now I can go ahead and grab that old grimy skillet or pot I see at a flea market and not be worried that I’d never get it clean.
Black Iron Blog is all about caring for and cooking with cast iron cookware. Check it out here!
I am just really getting use to using cast iron as my mom recently gave me her trusted old skillet. I am really enjoying it and would love to add more to my arsenal. This summer I will be scaling the flea markets and second hand shops for a real bargain!
On another note while we’re in the kitchen…
I spent two days last week organizing recipes that have piled up. I seem to collect them like corners collect dust bunnies! It’s been on my to-do list for, well, forever. I’m always printing one off the internet and tearing them out of magazines, (why do waiting rooms have to have them laying there!) and I seem to have piles everywhere now. I saw this post on organizing your recipes quite sometime ago over at Mel’s Kitchen and have been going to follow her lead all winter. I’m happy to say I finally got it done! I did not go out and buy ‘pretty’ notebooks, just used what I had here. No fancy labels or covers, but they are neat and orderly! My daughter-in-law will be proud of me! I won’t have to call her anymore and say remember that recipe I gave you for…I need it again because I can’t find mine. Her recipes are so neat and organized:)
Here is the link to Mel’s Kitchen Tip: Organizing My Recipes and she also has a great post on Menu Planning 101 with great print outs for us! I use a lot of Mel’s recipes!
I think I sleep better at night now! Next up organizing our photos on the computer, argh!
