  For the most part we love New England weather around here but in the next couple weeks the nights are going to start getting longer and the days are going to get a bit cooler.  With that in mind it’s nice to preemptively pick out your fall cookware and refresh or replace it.  My favorite fall cookware is my sturdy, giant dutch oven.  It does everything...
