January calls for a bowl of hot soup like no other month does, and since it’s Soup Month and Slow Cooker Month, what could be better than to simmer up a steaming crock of homemade soup in a slow cooker?!
Throw in some potatoes, some bacon and some cheese, and you’ve got feel-good happiness for your tum-tum.
