Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Solid, plain, steady, trustworthy—this might be the tool to reunite the two Americas! The authors, who live in Seattle, have an instinctive sense of all-American cooking as shown by their recipes for open-face sloppy Joes, chicken with herbed dumplings and cornbread. But there are interesting variants too, like fennel-ricotta skillet bread and brown-sugar coffee cake."
The New York Times Book Review

"…a distinctive blend of traditional and modern insights…this book makes a good compliment to the purchase of your first cast iron skillet."
Cooking with Paula Deen

"The Seattle-area mother-daughter team of Sharon Kramis and Julie Kramis Hearne are women after my own heart. ...And this month, they've come out with a second edition of their original book (that sold more than 80,000 copies), which has 95 good recipes, from savory mains to desserts to surprises such as the Pecan Sticky Buns beautifully depicted on the cover."
—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Kramis and Hearne, a Seattle-based mother-daughter duo, are back with an updated edition of their popular guide to a favorite cooking tool. With more than 100 recipes—from classic bread pudding to internationally inspired pork katsu—plus bright photos and tips on skillet care, this cookbook will delight cast iron enthusiasts and newcomers alike."
—Alaska Airlines Magazine

"In a world of copper-bottom pans and All-Clad sets that cost hundreds of dollars, the cast-iron skillet can be easy to overlook. But Sharon Kramis and Julie Kramis Hearne want to remind the world this tried-and-true kitchen tool is actually 'one of the most important pans in your kitchen.' The 100 recipes in The Cast Iron Skillet Cookbook (an update of the original 2004 edition) range from traditional favorites, such as zucchini-onion frittatas and seared beef tenderloin, to more surprising uses of the skillet, like pecan sticky bread and Best Baked Beans. Kramis and Hearne explore the ways in which cast iron can result in a better browning on a piece of meat, more flavor in vegetables and improved texture in baked goods. Their enthusiasm, coupled with full-color photographs of the results of their easy-to-follow recipes, makes it clear why this age-old kitchen tool hasn't yet gone out of style."
—Shelf Awareness

"Owners of cast iron skillets will find this packs in a fine set of recipes created by the mother/daughter authors Sharon Kramis and Julie Kramis Hearne, blending old and new styles and flavors in nearly a hundred appealing dishes. Color photos pepper ideas on using the cast iron skillet to bake and cook and are accompanied by tips on care of the skillet."
The Midwest Book Review

"Cast Iron Skillet Cookbook: Recipes for the Best Pan in Your Kitchen has been revised and expanded in this new edition, and provides cooks with a lovely collection of single-pan recipes for everything from main courses to desserts. Rack of Lamb in a skillet? Sticky Buns? Crispy Lamb Skewers? All these and more receive step-by-step instructions, easy recipes that don't require any special ingredients, and a peppering of color photos throughout. Any who have wanted to use the cast iron skillet for more than just occasional stir-fries will find this packed with different techniques and an appoach designed to make the most of cast iron cookery."
—The Bookwatch

"Sharon Kramis and Julie Kramis Hearne are cast iron skillet mavens. This book, Cast Iron Skillet, was a best seller in its first edition. Now, it has been revised, extended, made a little more contemporary, and friendly to those who favor veggies on their plate... And here these two experts are rolling out more cast iron gems. There’s a need to stop, look, and listen. Oh, to cook and taste and relish, too!"
—Cooking by the Book  

"Without reservation, I can say that if this is typical of how cast iron food tastes, then these authors have made a believer out of me.... It’s an amazing book which has made me a bona fide cast iron skillet user.  Our copy, already marked from ingredients – the sign of a great cookbook – is going right on the shelf in our kitchen near our cast iron pan where it belongs."
Lessons Learned from the Flock 

"Kramis and Hearne helpfully preface their recipes with a cast iron maintenance debriefing. You'll really start to warm to cast iron when you picture a puffed Dutch baby, a golden Dungeness crab quesadilla, hearty beef stew, or tender baked halibut…So dig out that cast iron cookware from the back of the cupboard—you'll find out it's more than a relic of the woodstove era."
—Northwest Palate magazine
