Brought this one home from the library today and the lemon yogurt dressing was so appealing I made it right away. I have chickpeas in the Ipot, so I‘m all set! (💜 Ipot)

Thank you so much for my terrific package, Chrissy! I love it!
I‘ve been hunting for slow cooker recipes, so your book choice is perfect! I‘ve browsed through a bit, and the recipes sound really good! A combination of easy and a little foodie, which is exactly what I was looking for. The pouch is great, and I love the self care gifts. ❤️ Very cool your local roaster makes K cups! And Chris is not getting a chocolate - sorry 🤣
Thank you!!
