  1. I am in love with my cast iron skillet and can’t wait to try some new recipes. Looks great especially the fajitas!

  2. YUM!!! Your Skillet Chicken Cacciatore looks beyond dreamy! Thanks so much for including me in this tasty round-up! <3

  3. Great roundup. They all look amazing, and I want to make each and every one of these.

    I only have a teeny cast iron skillet. I’m desperate for a Lodge one, but they don’t sell them here in the UK, and those suckers weigh a ton.

  4. These look amazing, but there’s a minor problem. When I click the link for the beef fajitas it directs me to the chicken pot pie. 🙁
    Can’t wait to try these out though!
