    OMG you’re amazing! Thank you so much for sharing these awesome crockpot recipes. With it being so hot in summer (it’s been high 30’s here for a couple weeks and gonna get 40 degrees on Saturday!!), I hate to turn on the oven. I love trying new recipes in the crockpot and find it easier to make the family eat healthier that way too šŸ˜‰ (somehow to them if it’s a crockpot meal is extra special lol). Thanks again for taking the time to share these health recipes! I’m gonna try one today!! šŸ™‚ You’re the best!!
