“Heidi Rabel, author of "The What To Fix For Dinner Coobook" also teaches. I had the pleasure of attending a day-long soup class hosted by my husband's Aunt. Heidi is very involved with the YWCA and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of her book are donated to the YWCA of Seattle-King County emergency shelter program. She teaches the women in the shelter what they need to know in order to cook and feed their families affordable nutritious meals. I think you'll like this recipe!”
