* pan handle mitt

Posted on June 3rd, 2006 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.

I got a nice cast iron frying pan for a dollar at a garage sale a few weeks ago. Today while cooking lunch, my husband wished that he had a hot mitt for the pan handle. I immediately thought of this scrap of quilted fabric left over from the coffee press cozy. I knew there was a reason I didn’t throw it away! Two seams later, wish granted.

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
