Slow Cooker Rosemary Turkey Breast

One of the scariest parts of hosting Thanksgiving for me the first time was definitely the turkey.  I’d watched my aunts and Mom do it for years, and they always made it look so effortless and easy.  My mom’s turkey is KILLER–super moist, flavorful, and delicious, so the bar was set pretty high!
