For generations, it’s the one thing that has never changed. Or worn out. With its rich history and formidable staying power, who among us doesn’t have at least one of grandma’s skillets? Not only is it cheaper than its modern-day, fancy-pants counterparts, it’s non-toxic. And if your great grandma were around to utter admonitions, she’d tell you a thing or two about proper kitchenware (and manners), and then hand you a cast-iron griddle and show you how to make a mess of biscuits the likes of which you’ve never tasted before. From asparagus and mushroom quiche with potato crust to chicken and biscuit skillet pie to ham dinner on the half peel to rhubarb-raspberry pandowdy, MaryJane's unpretentious recipes for breads, breakfasts, soups, casseroles, main dishes, and pies and other desserts that include step-by-step instructions.
