  1. Hi Shannon! I've been following your blog for a while now and made this recipe from it the other night... so good! I added some carrots to it for more veggies and used sesame oil- it turned out great! I finally got a slow cooker and I love it so I'm always checking back to your blog for new ideas. Keep 'em coming and thanks! (it's Lauren C. from KD :)
