  1. Hello I am new to this blog. I always wonder why so many slow cooker recipes have sugar or honey in it a life-changing ingredient or can it be dismissed? I absolutely hate sweetened food, my taste buds are quite sensitive :/

    1. Sweet and savory go really well together. However, if you don't like the sweet part, you can leave out the honey.
