    There is noticeably a bundle to understand about this. I assume you made particular nice points in capabilities also.

    The most memorable thing I’ve cooked in a skillet is tilapia curry. I sauté the tilapia fillets, add some frozen peas and fresh cauliflower, then cover the whole thing with a small jar of curry sauce like Seeds of Change or Trader Joes. What makes it special is that it’s mind numbingly easy, but my husband and very finicky daughters rave over it like I’ve actually invented sliced bread. No complaining at the dinner tabe is a wonderful feeling.

    my favorite meal to cook is stir fry but we have a young daughter who is allergic to rice and cooking is a must so we know exactly what is in her food, this set would help us a lot

    My hubby’s favorite meal is a sausage and mushroom omelet — and it takes a good skillet to make a good omelet!

    My most memorable skillet meal was a chicken stir fry that I made for my dad and I. He had Alzheimer’s and I was taking care of him so that my mother and sister could have a day out together. All of the memories I have of times with him are precious because he has gone to be with Jesus.

    I use my skillet to make homemade Jambalaya because no matter how much I make, my kids eat it all! It is great fun watching my two 20+ boys fought over the last spoonful! Good cooking in the kitchen is a wonderful family bonder!

    One meal I love and have made repeatedly in a skillet is Tilapia fried in equal amounts of butter, olive oil and lime juice with creole seasoning added to the flour coating. First I slowly carmelize a large onion and later add various colors of peppers to the onion. Once the vegetables are done, I remove them from the pan and then cook the Tilapia. Catfish is also delicious prepared this way. Funny how I just got a hankering for Tilapia!

    When we moved to our new house (wth five kids) several of my boxes were misplaced (they were buried under other boxes). My kitchen pots ended up in a large pile in the spare bedroom even though it was clearly marked kitchen. My sister lent me a frying pan to make eggs for the kids for that night but it ended up being the only pan I had for over a week until we finally located the box (which we assumed had “fallen off the truck”). We still talk about how one can cook for a family of 7 with one pot if desperate. I made everything from fried fish to cooked rice to hotdogs over the course of a week. All were memorable.

    Hmm…my current skillet favs are both centered around pork chops. Coincidence? Perhaps. One involves a citrus glaze and cumin seeds on the chops and the other is a black bean/salsa “relish” that cooks alongside the chops. Everybody that has tried either has fallen in love with them! So have I — easy and delicious!

    My most memorable skillet meal was a super simple no bake hot dish recipe that includes ground beef, mixed vegetables, and spaghetti in a tomato cheese sauce. A comfort food from childhood that we made as a simple lunch when family was visiting. I still make it when I need some comfort!

    My most memorable meal cooked in a skillet happened during the summer of 1993 or 1994.

    I was never a good cook and my selection of cookware was pitiful. I was preparing my first full meal for a guy I’d been dating and naturally I wanted to impress him. So, I reached for my collection of, “Southern Living Annual Recipes,” and found such a meal on page 80 of the 1991 edition. I made everything on the page: Grilled Flank Steak, Lemon-Carrot Bundles, Garden New Potatoes, Refrigerator Yeast Rolls, Fruited Mint Tea, and Strawberries.

    The skillet I used for the potatoes was a cheap, non-stick (the kind that was peeling) from the discount store. It was too small for the dish, so it was hard to stir and I ended up with a good portion of it on the stove. I knew then that I needed something larger if I wanted to continue to cook nice meals. Despite the awful cookware conditions, the potatoes were delicious, as was the rest of the meal.

    Last summer, nearly 20 years later, I reconnected with that old boyfriend. During our phone call we got on the subject of cooking and he reminded me of that meal I made for him. He said how wonderful it was and he even commented on the carrot bundles tied with leeks. And who says guys don’t pay attention to details?! Turns out it was a memorable skillet meal for him, too.

    I’ve since grown from that cooking experience and now own several pieces of quality cookware that I love and use regularly. I now absolutely love cooking and make most of my own meals.

    I love fishing and camping. Catching a Rainbow Trout at 7am and eat it from breakfast out in the Great Outdoors… It does not get any better than that using my Skillet on the open Fire

    I love blackened fresh catfish fillets in a good skillet, because it’s just as easy to make as it is good! This is a quick meal, but tastes like you spent a lot of time on it. This skillet from set of Calphalon’s Unison Non-Stick Cookware would be terrific to use because these pans heat evenly. I would throw ALL of mine away just to have a set of Calphalon.

    My most memorable skillet meal was in my Aunt Bell’s iron skillet. She left it to me when she passed away. The first time I used it was 32 years ago when I got married. The meal I made was salmon croquettes. My husband loves salmon, where I really don”t. To this day I enjoy cooking meals that he enjoys even if I don’t care for.

    I will always remember the first time I attempted omeletes….burnt them on the outside, inside was runny. They were memorable to say the least!

    I love to make chicken fried steak in a skillet. We raise our own beef and it is always tender and delicious! Of course there are many other cuts of beef I cook in a skillet, but chicken fried steak is my favorite!

    My kids would say my chicken fried steak! They love it and it’s always a treat now since we’re trying to eat healthier.

    When I was a child, I used to fry chicken in a cast iron skillet. It was a huge skillet!! It was always a big deal to me to be able to fry chicken in that skillet and get all the complements from my dad, mom and 3 brothers about how good that chicken was. My brother now has it and they use it to cook for their family of nine!

    I have been on my own for 17 years and never have I ever had a kitchen cookware set that didn’t tear up so fast or have to get thrown out because it was cheaply made! I would feel like a real woman and mother, if I ever had something valuable to cook meals for my children with!

    My most memorable meal was probably my first meal I cooked for my parents when I was in high school. I grew up with two older brothers who always picked on me about cooking as I was growing up. They used to call my cookies hockey pucks and stuff like that just to make me mad but they always ate all of them. So I made a meal for my parents when my brothers were away at college so they wouldn’t pick at me. It was hamburger steak grilled in the skillet with chopped tomatoes and some spices and I thought it was the best meal I have ever made – and I didn’t have to listen to them complain!

    The hamburger steaks I cooked to earn my very first Girl Scout badge were cooked in a skillet. I planned and cooked the entire meal by myself and our next door neighbor ate supper with us. I was so proud of myself!

    When my fiancee and I first started dating, he attempted to cook me a vegetarian stir fry. Keep in mind, he had never made something that did not come from a box and most of his previous dinners were microwave ready. It ended up being 50% disaster and 50% an amazing bonding experience because I got to teach him a few tricks of the trade!

    My most memorable meal I ever cooked in a skillet happened when i was 9 years old. I can remember so well the morning my mother let me help her cook breakfast. We are a large family. I am the youngest of seven, and people say we are like stairsteps, one born year after year. Being called the “baby” for so long, this morning was the first time I felt like I was finally growing out of the “baby” stage because my mom let me fry the bacon and eggs. Scrambled eggs of course. I know this sounds horrible, but when mother had finished baking the biscuits I took one and dipped it into the bacon grease in the pan and ate it. For some reason I loved eating the hot bacon grease on biscuits more than eating the bacon. I felt like this was the first time my older siblings thought that I was not the “baby” any more, because I was old enough to fix them a meal.

    I would probably still be considered a budding cook. I am still in college and only have a couple years experience cooking on my own, but I have found it to be a great stress-reliever and something I really enjoy doing. The most memorable meal I have made in a skillet would have to be some yummy fruit pancakes and bacon. I made it for my whole family one weekend and they devoured it all, I felt so accomplished! Thanks for the opportunity to make some new memorable meals in this fabulous Calphalon cookware!

    I still have my grandmothers vintage skillet.. I’m sure it could go for hundred years,, My favorite dish she used to cook in it was fried catfish and cornbread.. But I’d like to start a new tradition with a new cookware set and with the brand like Calphalon, I’m sure I could pass my cookware along to my children.

    Being born and raised in Mobile, Alabama, I know how to survive the “camping” conditions after a hurricane. Since the power is usually out, everyone has a gas grill for cooking. The most memorable thing I’ve ever cooked is jambalaya and shrimp scampi. We can’t bear to let our shrimp spoil, so they must be cooked!!!

    Mary Ann The most memorable dish cooked in a Calphalon Skillet is Orrichette, Broccoli, Chicken Sausage, and sundried tomatoes. This is absolutely delicious, easy, and Calphalon is the way to go.

    My most memorable skillet meal is Chicken Parmesan. Chicken Parmesan has always been my husband’s favorite meal and he ordered it at any Italian restaurant we ate at. Our first Valentine’s Day as a couple, I found a great recipe that’s easy, takes only 20 minutes, and is all prepared on a stovetop in the skillet. I now make it every year for Valentine’s day and our anniversary. It always makes him smile, which in turn, makes me smile.
