January is National Soup Month, and you can easily see why. What’s better on a cold day than eating a bowl of warm, comforting soup? Soup is one of the easiest meals to make- especially if you have access to a slow cooker or Instapot. Want to learn how to make soup (and other meals)? See below for places to find cooking classes in your community.
