Roll your pants up

So yesterday I was having some very weird dreams. I kept dreaming about blogger's and how I was going out with different blogger's I have been following. I must have been awake about ten times last night, up and down, up and down. I do think this was all due to the fact that as I was walking down the stairs with my son, we both wiped out. I slipped on the bottom of my sweatpants and we totally went flying. Needless to say we were both crying but I think he was crying because he was scared. But all night kept checking on him to make sure the poor thing was breathing. I have fallen before and slipped but to wipe out with him...ahhh I felt terrible. Anyone else ever totally bite the dust with your kid in your arms? Because I had a stressful night sleep I feel that we should indulge in some comfort food. This is a great brownie recipe and always have rave reviews whenever it is served. Enjoy and roll your pants up!

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs
3/4 cup cocoa
1 cup all-purpose flour(I use whole wheat)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped nuts (optional, I usually had peanut butter chips-AWESOME)

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease 13x9x2 inch baking pan.
Melt butter in microwave.
Stir in sugar and vanilla.
Beat in eggs, one at a time.
Add cocoa, flour, baking powder and salt; beat until well blended.
Stir in nuts, if desired or anything else that goes with choc, heck everything goes with choc!!!)
Pour batter into pan.
Bake 30-35 minutes(I do 25 mins)


  1. They sound good - I wish I could see a yummy photo - next time ;).

  2. Oh dear! What a rough night! Sounds like you could use some of those yummy brownies today!

  3. Those sound divine! I'm sorry you had such a bad night! I hope all is well now.
    We would love for you to join in the Spring Blog Hop!

  4. Oh, I love the name of your blog!! We used to all meet at my great g-fathers Christmas AM. We would make a big family breakfast. Someone would be cooking the 3 lbs. of bacon in the cast iron skillet on the stove and eventually the smoke alarm would go off. This happened every Christmas!!
    I love the peanut butter chips in your brownies.
    Win Rachael Ray bake ware at my blog.

  5. The brownies sound like pure comfort food. I'm so glad you and your child weren't hurt. Stairs are so dangerous, and I always forget that and traipse up and down until I have a misstep. The one light is burned out in our basement stairway, and it's too high to replace. I missed a step the other night and ended up on my well padded bum!
    Take care,


Thanks for visiting!
