    Cast Iron Skillet Cinnnamon Rolls (Because winter is long.)

    Rich, decadent cinnamon rolls with deliciously sweet icing - can you think of a better way to bide your time for Spring to arrive? What makes these cinnamon rolls slightly crisp on the outside and gooey on the inside is its unique baking method.

    Introducing the fool-proof method of baking the most perfect cinnamon rolls. Making them in a cast iron skillet. Oftentimes with more traditional methods, the rolls come out either too doughy or overcooked. The cast iron gives the buns a nice, slight crisp on the edges while still providing that desirable soft center.

    And, if you don't have a cocktail shaker you better get one quick before they're gone! This holiday it's been hard keeping anything in stock. As of my writing this post we still have a few shakers left, including a 26 ounce stainless shaker with strainer, a boston-style stainless steel shaker and a nifty 7-piece bar set. Hurry, before these become a memory.

    For Pie Lover's Only!

    I come from a family of unabashed pie lovers. A homemade pie was always preferred to cake for birthdays and such, and we never missed a strawberry-rhubarb, cherry, blueberry, or peach pie season. When the snap of fall came calling, Mom’s apple pie took center stage and was truly other-worldly, but so was she.

  • It's time you learn a new cooking technique, Sous Vide.
    September 30, 2020 Frankie F.

    Don't let the strange name fool you. Sous Vide (pronounced sue-veed) translates as "under vacuum" in French. The beauty (and secret) of sous vide cooking is that you cook your food sealed in a heat proof bag or pouch that is then submersed in hot water and kept at the desired temperature. It 's a great method of cooking that you shouldn't overlook or be intimidated by, especially with the new sous vide cooking appliances available now.
