Cast Iron Help

I LOVE my cast iron skillet. I use it just about every time I am in the kitchen. The handle however does pose a bit of a problem as it heats up and makes it hard to handle. (ha-ha- excuse the pun). Check out these options for handle covers I found. Maybe you will find one you like and it will solve your dilemma too!
Happy Shopping- Enjoy!

Fresh Chicken Salad Sandwich

Last week I baked up a HUGE 24 lb turkey. By the end of the week Mr. Man and I were getting pretty sick of turkey! I decided to whip up some biscuits and make one of my favorite fresh sandwiches. I used the turkey meat, but it would be easy to use chicken. The salad would also be delicious on slices of cucumber if you wanted to skip the biscuits.

Fresh Chicken Salad
2 cups cooked, chopped chicken/turkey
1/2 cup paleo mayo
1/2 cup unsweetened cranberries (you could also replace this with fresh grapes, or add both!)
1 apple, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1/4 cup pecans, chopped
1 Tbsp lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 tsp fresh chopped dill weed (if you don't have this on hand, dried works too)

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, and enjoy!

Flaky, Buttery, Biscuits
I found this recipe here. I ended up using 1/2 coconut flour and 1/2 almond meal because I was out of the blanched almond flour. It was still delicious, although you can see from my picture it doesn't look as "light" as hers does.
I served mine like an open faced sandwich. That way I could have more salad. :) They are very filling, which is always a good thing! Enjoy!
