The Comeback of CafeWigglesworth

In Meals on October 24, 2016 at 4:25 am


So, it’s been over 2 years since the last blog post. The funny thing is that I actually write for 2 other blogs now (one as a contributor and the other as the owner), so I am not too sure why I haven’t been able to get my stuff together to write here more often.

I thought to come here last night while I was working through my meal plan. I have meals planned out through mid-December and I thought it would be a great way to get on track here at CafeWigglesworth.

Tonight for dinner, we are going to have Rice and Beans, using almost the same recipe I had shared a few years ago. The only difference is that I will be using a different rice (Basmati) . Tomorrow, the plan is to have leftovers for dinner, which means I will have enough time to work on blogs posts for the recipes we haven’t shared here.

I’m excited to be “back” and I am hoping to be more active here. Keep an eye on the blog!


Awesome Cocoa Brownies

So, as you may have noticed I am having a hard time keeping up with this blog. However, once you read, make, and eat this recipe, you might just forgive me.

We LOVE brownies- Yes We Do!

You Need:

1/2 cup of cocoa (we used Swiss Miss)

1/2 cup of vegetable oil

1 cup of sugar

2 eggs

2 Tablespoons vanilla extract

1/2 cup of flour

1/2 cup of Nestle Sno-Caps

1/2 cup of mini marshmallows

Preheat your oven to 350°. Mix cocoa and oil in a bowl, until well blended. Add the sugar and slowly mix in the eggs and vanilla, until all ingredients are well combined and mixture is creamy. Add the flour, and mix for about 2 minutes.  Fold in the Sno-Caps and marshmallows and then pour batter into lightly greased 9×9 pan (we used our heart-shaped cupcake pan, which made 6 brownies). Bake brownies for 25 minutes, or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Happy 2014!

It’s nearing the first evening of 2014 and we are having LEFTOVERS for dinner! We made lentil soup last night- mostly because I love lentil soup, but also because eating lentils on New Year’s Eve is supposed to bring good luck! I’m assuming that eating it the next day brings even more good luck.  I’m hoping to really get back into the swing of things as far as updating this blog and sharing recipes and pictures. Our oldest, who is now 6, got a really neat Discovery Kids baking set and loves being in the kitchen as much as ever. Our youngest, who is 20 months, loves doing whatever her oldest sister does so she is often in the kitchen helping in whatever way she can.

I adore spending time with my girls, sometimes at the expense of doing anything else. The time goes too fast and I don’t want to look back wishing I spent more time with them.  I love that they are interested in something that will serve them for a lifetime! So, when the 6 year old recommends having a cookie contest or the 1 year old wants to stir the cake mix I smile and let it happen 🙂
