The six-year-old requested this for her birthday this year. We are mixing them up now! Give this recipe a try. 😊
Cast Iron Skillet Cookie:
1 stick butter and 1/4 cup tasteless oil (I use light olive oil), melted
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup honey
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Vanilla
Whip the sugar, honey, and butter several minutes until light and creamy (this step is important, don’t skimp on the mixing). Then mix in the egg, salt, and vanilla.
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp Baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips
Mist your skillet(s) with cooking oil. You can either use one 10″ skillet, or three mini cast iron skillets. Fill with cookie batter. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Best served warm with vanilla ice cream.

This skillet recipe is a great way to use up holiday leftovers. The recipe listed is a Mexican skillet that calls for sausage but it’s just as good with chicken or beef. I made it with some leftover grilled chicken on Sunday and it may show up on our dinner table later in the week with some turkey. Hint, hint for Thanksgiving leftovers.
Remember all your blessings and from whom they come.
“And thus they found the Lord to be with them in all their ways, and to bless their outgoings and incomings, for which let His holy name have the praise forever, to all posterity.”
~ William Bradford, Of Plymouth Plantation, Chapter XII
We normally travel over Thanksgiving. But, this year we are planning on doing the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (pictures to follow) so we are staying in the city this year. I’ll be making the chicken and dressing that my “Nanny” always used to make us. So, as I cook this week I’ll be thinking of Maggie and other family far away. Enjoy your families this week and make some good memories.
I just posted about my favorite herb and tea blends yesterday and I just discovered another one today. Read yesterday’s post and scroll down to the bottom to see my newest favorite blend – Black Raspberry and Lime. Mmmm.
I’m sure you’ve all realized it by now. It’s Christmas time!!!
Which means I’m winding up for Christmas…. decorating, shopping, crafting, baking, parties, field trips and special activities with the kids, cleaning for family visits, etc. And trying to stay healthy and well during all of it. It’s a busy time for me as I’m sure it is for all of you.
So, winding up to celebrate Christmas means winding down my blog a bit for this season.
But, even while my blog is taking a rest, you can follow me on my Facebook page to keep up what I find around on the internet.
Enjoy the holiday season and your family celebrations, and join me back in January for more weekly blog posts.
