Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2018!

I still cannot believe that today is the first day of another year. I am starting my day with one…okay maybe two…White Chocolate Cranberry Muffins and a large cup of coffee because tomorrow I plan on going hard with my workout and diet. I will also be having dinner with my family later today and will definitely not miss out on eating the traditional black-eyed peas and greens that you must have on the first day of each new year to bring you good luck.

Honestly, I am not sure if this works, but I prefer not to be the one that ruins the tradition by skipping out on this. Plus I rebel on enough things that my family lets me get away with AND I will not be the one to miss my mama’s black-eyed peas, greens, and cornbread. However let me tell you that it does not have to be day one of a new year for me to enjoy these, so luck or no luck…just let me know when and where to fix my plate.

Speaking of home-cooked meals…

It is time for another Domestic Dayz Link Up where we link up our favorite recipes, DIYs, and anything that is homemade to connect and share how to make a house a home. We have decided to switch things up a bit for the New Year and instead of having a weekly link up; we will instead be having a monthly link up that will be open for the entire month. You will also have the chance to link up to four posts for us to check out.

So without any further delay…let’s get this party started.

A link party for good times, over good food, doing cool things and meeting new people!

    These are perfection. I’m actually working on a recipe with cranberries today. It goes far beyond Christmas – a winter staple for me!

    Hi Lakita! I hope you had a great holiday season and a wonder-filled New Year, I’m loving these white chocolate cranberry muffins, I’m not a huge fan of white chocolate but cranberries are my jam. I hope you have been successful with going hard on your New Year Diet. I’m all about greens and Black Eyed Peas on New Years! I thought my family was the only ones that believed in that.
