I treated myself to something I've never owned before, a cast iron skillet. I've plenty of frying pans but never owned a large cast iron skillet before.

Theres a surprising amount of care that goes into it, when I've brought pans before they were pre-seasoned so didn't have to ever season a pan before. Also been looking up on guides to proper use, since I want this thing to last me a long time.
Cast iron is amazing.  It holds the heat so well, and of course is best at going straight from the stovetop into the oven -- my preferred way to make steak is to sear it in the cast iron and then chuck it, pan and all, into a 450F oven.  Properly seasoned, it's nearly non-stick.

If she does again, see if you can get some vanilla icecream and have some big that while it's still warm

That looks nice. Makes me think of the sausage and bean stew i make. Cut up sausages, mixed beans, carrots, celery, and Dijon mustard

Anyone ever tried or baked Snickerdoodle Cookies before? Found a recipe and thought I'd try them, ordered some cream of tartar for it.

This was big with moms in the US during the 60s.  You will need an alternative recipe because ... diabetes.
