Fall is one of my favorite seasons. It’s the season of savory soups and chilis, warm casseroles, and comforting roasts to keep you nice and cozy during the cooler weather. And with all the soups that I’ve been making lately, I was so incredibly thrilled when The Pampered Chef asked me to try out one of their new fall products, their Rockcrok™ Dutch Oven.
