Bake a pie, make a batch of cornbread, roast a pork loin with fresh garden vegetables. Cook up a pizza, crisp up some fried chicken, whip up some bibimbap. These are all dishes you can make in just one pan, the good old Cast Iron Skillet. Need more convincing (assuming you don’t have one already)? Bake a lasagne, toast up some s’mores, even make an oatmeal, eggs or pancake breakfast, and you can do that in your home or out over a campfire.
