I have not forgotten about blogging. Promise! I just get so busy in the kitchen working on recipes, that the days just seem to fly by.
One thing that I've been using a lot in the kitchen lately is my new favorite pan. It's a Lodge cast iron biscuit pan, which I have figured out is great for so many things, above and beyond biscuits (though it works really well for those too). I've been using it for cornbread, muffins, mini hamburger buns, scones and even brownie batter. But you know what my favorite discovery has been this week? English muffins! I know! I've been working on a perfect English muffin recipe for the new book (with LOTS of nooks and crannies), and found that this fab cast iron baby makes awesome English muffins. Even better than those metal English muffin rings, which are supposed to work really well for making them. I much prefer this pan to the rings, that's for sure. I'm thinking that this pan would even make the most adorable 3-inch veggie burgers. I love to find cool new uses for kitchen equipment.
Anyways, here are some pics of the English muffins, which I made with white wheat flour. They are so yummy! I wish I could share the recipe already.
I hope everyone is having a great spring!
