Tools of the Trade!

I HAD to blog about my wonderful new finds to help in the kitchen!  

I have always wanted some LeCreuset pieces, but at around $400 for a dutch oven, it wasn't happening.  

I started reading more about cookware and the effects on your health and I really wanted to get some enameled cast iron pieces.  I happened upon a company called Lodge - they have started making enamel cast iron pieces at a fraction of the price of LeCreuset!!  I called their company and asked about their quality and manufacturing and then ordered up a 3 quart from Amazon for a mere $39.99 (on sale from $79.99 on Amazon).  I LOVED it - used it for tons of stuff, so I just ordered the 6 qt. Dutch oven (waited until it went on sale for $39.99).  I made French Market Soup in it yesterday and it was delicious!   To top it off, they are so pretty in my kitchen!

I'm sold on Lodge cookware!!

  1. Peggy, I've got a google news alert set for anything dealing with cast iron cookware or dutch ovens. I came across your blog, and I, too, am a fan of Lodge.

    Hey, I wanted to invite you to a cast iron discussion group at

    Once you sign up, the list owner, Delia, will need to approve you. There's no screening or anything--she just wants to keep out spammers that the group has had in the past. I hope to see you at the Cast Iron discussion group.
