It’s official: Summer is over and fall is here. The days are getting shorter, the wind is getting cooler, and the trees are turning bright oranges, reds and golds. There are many reasons why I love autumn. At the top of my list is enjoying all the warm, comforting meals that reach our tables this time of year.
I love fresh salads and freshly baked burgers more than anyone else. But there is something special about cold season food. Soups, stews, casseroles, roasts… Just thinking about them puts a smile on my face and brings me peace of mind. To create these amazing dishes, I’ve come to rely on some of the kitchen tools I’ve acquired over the years. Some have been proven.
