Cooks to perfection
Ina Garten is not alone in her adoration of this skillet: More than 105,000 Amazon shoppers have given it a five-star rating!
"Perfect," declared one five-star reviewer. "At 58 years old, I grew up using iron cookware and prefer to cook with it whenever possible. I have spent as much as $150 on a top-name brand 'nonstick' skillet only to be donated a year later to the thrift store! Never again...I love my iron skillets. I'll be back for more pieces."
Another shopper professed: "I love this skillet! I've used it on the stove: gas and electric...as well as over fire outdoors. I've owned it for eight months now and it still looks as new as it did...I've made many different foods in this, Utica Greens, bacon, eggs, steak, pizza...etc. All have come out perfect. ... I would say I would buy this again, but I see this skillet lasting forever!"
One shopper raved: "I really love this cast-iron skillet from Lodge! ... For me, a purchase like this is about an investment, and I want my investment to last a long time.... I also really like the fact that this is made in the USA. American-made products are just not easy to find anymore. But really, the proof in the quality of this cast iron was obvious when I made sweet potato cornbread and baked it in the oven in this skillet. It came out so nice and brown and moist."
Let's send a collective thank-you to the dear Contessa, for bringing our attention to this beauty. And we will take a bow for finding it at such a low price! But hurry, this deal won't last.

The celebration of July 4 as Philippine Independence Day has long been set aside. I know that. And its replacement, the Filipino-American friendship day, has also long been set aside, too, as a holiday.

And the new president, Ferdinand Marcos Jr. cannot stand differently, considering recent history.But if you ask me, Bongbong Marcos and his family
