This amazing Paleo Slow Cooker Cabbage Rolls really does just mean winter. It's got it all, winter storage vegetables, ground meat and the crock pot, what else? Oh yeah it's Paleo for anyone watching carbs.


Next up Swedish Meatballs. Sorry but what could better than gravy meatballs and pasta? That's right, NOTHING! 



And what winter meal plan would be complete without a chicken noodle soup variation? None is the answer so check out this mouthwatering Chicken and Orzo Soup recipe from Olives and Okra

      Who doesn't LOVE to start off the year with a fresh clean idea like menu planning? Here's a great post from How Wife How-To's to help you start off on the right foot!



      This post, Clean Up the Clutter, by the Seasoned Housewife, was especially timely for me and maybe for everyone? I mean what better time to kick off the clean life than the start of the New Year?



      And finally if you haven't seen Star Wars you best crawl out from under your rock and proceed immediately to the nearest theater. This review of the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens from Domestic Bliss Squared will give away a few secrets so if you haven't seen beware of the spoilers.

      SRC - Honey Corn Muffins

      The Sweetness level on these muffins is on fleek!  I don't know what that means but thats what my daughter said.



      Its time for Secret Recipe Club again - I love being part of this fun club! My favorite part of the SRC is assignment day - I love when I get that e-mail in my inbox with the link to the blog that I get to choose my recipe from. I also love that most of my assignments have all come from blogs I have never been to before, it's really a great opportunity to find some fabulous bloggers out there and some delicious recipes. If you are not familiar with exactly how this club works, you can stop by the website and learn all about it - maybe even join in! Basically you are (secretly) assigned a blog to checkout, browse through their recipes, choose one to make and blog about it. It's a lot of fun!

      This month I was assigned another new to me blog, Food Ramblings.  Elizabeth had so many great recipes to choose from for breakfast this morning we almost made these Chocolate Waffles.  And I have already added this Baked Salmon to next weeks menu - yum! IN the end I decided to make the Honey Corn Muffins because I thought they would be great to have as a quick grab and go breakfast this week.

      I have to admit to you all - I actually am not a huge corn muffin fan but I do love some honey - so I figured I would give this a try.  I am so glad I tried it and I have decided to make another batch to bring to work with me, my coworkers would gobble these up.  I highly recommend you give these a try....enjoy!!




      recipe from Food Ramblings
      Ingredients:
      1 cup flour
      3/4 cup cornmeal
      1/3 cup sugar
      2 teaspoon baking powder
      1 egg
      1/4 teaspoon salt
      3/4 cup skim milk
      *1/4 cup vegetable oil
      1 teaspoon vanilla
      1/2 cup honey


      Directions:
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a Muffin tin with cupcake liners or spray with cooking spray.
      Combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Add in the egg, milk, vanilla, and oil *(confession - I accidently left out the oil  and these still came out great!) Stir the batter until moistened, do not over mix, the batter should be lumpy. Stir in the honey.
      Pour the batter into the muffin tins to about 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
