Hey there, I’m Katie!

Welcome to my four-seasoned neck of the woods.

I’m not talking seasoning on a pan. Nope. I’m a country girl from the great state of Maine, learning how to cook in a timeless method to pass down a legacy of recipes and taste to my children.

I adore everything about cast iron cookware from the seasoning to the clean-up, and the heating to eating. Everything is better cooked in cast iron – even ice cream… as long as it sits on top of some homemade apple crisp.

If you have beautiful, passed down cast iron skillets hanging on your wall as decor because you don’t know how to use them, well you’re in the right place sugar.

Here you’ll find delicious cast iron recipes, care and purchasing tips, as well as a community to connect in where we share a legacy of love for this cooking method.


The family behind
Cast Iron Recipes

If somehow we aren’t in the kitchen cooking already, we’re talking about what our next meal is going to be. With a husband and five kids, someone always has something cookin’ up their sleeves!

Where you can find me!

When I’m not in the kitchen, you can find me spending time with our children, working on the homestead, or at the grocery store! I also love sharing my day to day on Instagram, so be sure to connect with me there!

Why I cook with Cast Iron

Besides the fact that it’s easy to play peek-a-boo behind and make funny faces at the kids with, these are a few of the reasons I love to cook with cast iron:

  • it’s easy to clean
  • food tastes better
  • economically a worthy investment
  • tradition
  • generational heirlooms
  • even heating – no hot or cold spots!
  • non-stick
  • easy to maintain
  • easy to renew
  • useful on the stove-top, in the oven or over a fire
  • and so many more!

Since you’re here, you should take a look around! Head over to the Start Here section of the blog to find out about purchasing, caring for, and cooking with your cast iron.
