I was all over this week's Sunday Supper Movement event theme: Easy Skillet Recipes for Back to School (hosted by: Liz of That Skinny Chick Can Bake). I'm a mom of three - two are school-aged. One pot meals are my jam right now and they are perfect for my ever-busy Mondays.

I first had cabbage rolls when I met my stepfather's mom when I was in the fourth grade. My Gramma made the best cabbage rolls and I so wish that I had her recipe and her talent for rolling them. She passed away years ago from cancer and I miss her so very much. It is nice to have something that even comes close to her cabbage rolls that I can manage to make. This dish is as good as it will get for me to reminisce the time that I had with her.

The original recipe did not turn out for me (which is likely because of human error), so I ended up modifying the recipe and it turned out perfectly for me. I cannot get over how easy and delicious this recipe is. And the whole family loved it which is a huge plus for me because over the years I've eased cabbage into our meals little by little. It is one of my absolute favorites and I ate it a lot as a kid, but Nick was never a fan. Since I don't make it often, my older kids aren't accustomed to eating it. It's a winning recipe all around because of all of this. It tastes close to my Gramma's "pigs in a blanket" (what she called them), my family is learning to love cabbage like I do, and it's a one pot meal.
