Vegetarian cooking - do I need a cast iron skillet?

My mom has been vegetarian her entire life - you can definitely get by without it, but I guess the question is why not? There's no real doubt that a cast iron skillet is useful.

Why do you like to make food?

One thing I've noticed in the short 24 years of my life is that there are two people in this world: those who like to make food, and those who don't.

I'm guessing most of us here do like to make food, and I guess partially that comes from simply liking to eat. But what's the other part, for you? What else drives you to make food for yourself and others instead of going out and getting it pre-made or at a restaurant most nights?

For my friend's birthday this year, I want to send her a package of food that I've made. She lives across the state, and I rarely get to see her!

All I can think up to send is cookies, but I definitely need more than that to send. I don't want to have to go through the trouble of putting ice packs in the box and all that - but I do want a couple of good rich things that won't spoil in the day or so it will take to ship across the state, that can make her go "Wow!".

Any ideas? Her birthday is the 28th, so I need to get on this soon!
