Getting my hands on a new cookbook is like giving candy to a baby.  I was offered the opportunity to review Dutch Oven and Cast Iron Cooking. A cookbook with over 100 tasty recipes for indoor and outdoor cooking.  No compensation was provided.  All opinions expressed here are 100% my own.

Dutch ovens or cast iron skillets have been popular cooking vessels for centuries. Rediscovering cooking with this centuries old method produces mouthwatering dishes that practically slides right out of the pan.

I scoured the cookbook to find a recipe to test out.  The instructions are easy, give you options for cooking outdoors, and if you are into glamping, or camping, you can make so many fantastic meals with just a dutch oven or a cast iron skillet.

While these were baking, there might have been one or two people pacing the floor and peering at the oven awaiting the arrival of all that soft, deliciousness.
