Also I love your blog and all the inspiration that comes with it!

    I love cast iron for cooking! Sadly, I just have a tortilla maker cast iron, which has no sides. I use it all the time for making things that do not require liquids to be held, but I’d love to have something with sides! I refuse to use the nonstick stuff, and while I have glass pots and pans (which have been discontinued :-() from the early 80s (I grew up on them…managed to find them on ebay), they are a pain when it comes to making things like eggs and other items that require nonstick. Thanks for the awesome opportunity!
