This Saturday
Lodge Cast Iron
Lodge Cast Iron Buffalo Nickel SkilletDennis will be cooking up a storm in his favorite cast iron skillet - his Lodge 10.25 in. skillet that is proudly still Made in the USA. He will be discussing proper care and seasoning techniques as well as showing you why cast iron is an essential in any kitchen, as well as a perfect Father's Day gift!

Lodge has been making cast iron for over 100 years. Nestled alongside the Cumberland Plateau of the Appalachian Mountains is the town of South Pittsburg, TN. It was here that Joseph Lodge and his wife settled and, in 1896 opened his first foundry. Joseph Lodge created a legacy of quality that has thrived through two World Wars and the Great Depression and is still carried on by his family today. While many worthy competitors have fallen by the wayside, Lodge’s dedication to quality, technology, and employees have helped it not only survive but flourish.

Make it Pretty
This month’s themed items are inspired by Jessica Merchant, author of The Pretty Dish who will be joining us for a book signing on June 23rd. We looked for simple ways to bump up the presentation of everyday recipes, and you guessed it, “make it pretty.”
Corn on the Cob
Bamboo Corn PicksThese kitschy corn holders are an easy way to dress up your BBQ fare. Made from bamboo and burnished with a little corn cob, your guests will be able to easily hold their corn on the cob as they make their way from plate to chowing down, and look real cute while doing it.  They are available as a pack of 50, so invite everyone you know for our favorite summer side!

I Wanna Hold Your Hand
Lodge Chili Pepper Hold Handle HoldersDo chili peppers make your heart sing? Or do they make your heartburn?

Char the peppers real good in a cast iron pan, but don’t burn your hands! This set of two chili pepper patterned handle covers act as pot holders you don’t need to hold. Simply slip them onto the hot handle of your cast iron pan before picking it up, and they’ll protect your hands up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Strawberry Pie
Cast iron skillets are great to use when baking pies! The heat transfer and even heating of cast iron can result in tall pies with beautifully baked crusts.
