Wow, I didn't know "flying saucers" were made from cornbread.

Welcome to DC Freki! I like your signature. I just told Himself the other day that thanks to my CI pans I don't have "chicken wing arms".

It's a bit of a combination, more northern style with a southern twist though. Still working on the recipe, I've been tweaking mine for a few months. This time I think I'm closer to what I want though, used bacon grease from hickory smoked bacon :)

I didn't either! We inherited an old gem pan of unknown origins that is rounded rather than angled, I was expecting them to come out more like muffin tops than UFOs. But it did give me an idea for a Sci-Fi movie night, make UFO cupcakes frosted with blue and black frosting!

I use cast iron for about 80-90% of our foods (everything but soup and pastas, which I use a large 16 qt pot for). I fear touching pans in stores now, last time I nearly flung an aluminium frying pan into my face, I'm not used to light pans anymore :)

Does the pan look like this one? If it does, that is a special pan for making a Danish donut called an ∆bleskiver. If you are interested in making them, I'm sure one of the members with Danish roots or connections can help.




I have found if I pick up pans (or most anything) with both hands while shopping it prevents accidents. One hand on the handle, one on the rim opposite the handle. No flinging anymore!

Looks like the same indentations, but this is what I have. Maybe a variation on the same thing? But I'm always up for trying new things! If I'm not at work, I'm rummaging through old cookbooks or websites. When I find one I like, I tend to stick with it, tweaking it to my liking for a bit. Our friends and family rarely leave without trying something new :)

Thank you. No sympathies needed. We get along great!

We went out for lunch with TB's parents and had a feast of Chinese food, so weren't that hungry...until 9pm when we both got the munchies. We went to a KFC/Taco Bell. I had a 7 layer bean burrito and TB had a 4 piece chicken dinner. Now that he can have some wheat and gluten, he is going for the chicken while me, the poultry lover, went for the Mexican food because it was vegetarian.

Will we ever get on the same page food-wise?
