“When I fry, boil, or bake foods in an old fashion cast iron skillet, the ones like my grandmothers and mother use. Let me tell you, it absorbs all the flavors and makes the food taste so good. As they said back in the day 'this food is so good, it makes you want to hurt yourself.'" — Author Voncile Marie Johnson
