Mexican Lasagna - Dinner for 8 in an Hour

This is one of my favorite dishes to make. I've made it like a billion times, and every time, it never lasts too long. I took a break from baking it, but recently decided to give it a go again, and Todd was hooked! It's been two weeks or so since we had it last, so I went shopping and whipped it up again, AND got some shots to share with ya! Enjoy :)

Feeds: 8

Prep & Cook Time: 1 Hour

Ingredients:
     - 2 Pound of Ground Beef or Turkey
     - 1.25 oz Packet of Taco Seasoning - I used the Marcum brand 
     - 16 oz can Refried Beans - I used Senora Verde brand 
     - 3 Cups of Shredded Cheese - I used 1 12 oz bag of Finely Shreddred Cheddar-Jack Cheese from Coburn Farms 
     - 14.5 oz Can of Diced Tomatoes, drained - I used Diane's Garden brand 
     - 15 oz Can of Black Beans, drained - I used Goya's Frijoles Negros 
     - 15 oz Can of Corn - I used Libby's Whole Kernel Sweet Corn 
     - 6 Medium Tortillas - I used Tio Santi Flour Tortillas 
     - 2/3 Cups of Water
     - Opt. Sour Cream to top

Ingredient Notes:
Meat: I like to use Ground Turkey because it's leaner and I like the flavor
Cheese: I like to use Cheddar Jack because it's my favorite! But a Mexican mix would be appropriate and taste great too!
Corn: I had regular corn sitting around so I used it, but a Mexicorn mix would be great too!
Peppers & Onions: Todd doesn't like onions and peppers so I haven't added any when sharing with him, but when I've made this in the past, I've added about 1/2 cup each of diced red peppers, green peppers and onions My local Winn Dixie sells containers of pre-diced peppers and onions, which each have a net weight of 6 oz. I usually just pick up a few and use these as they taste fresh and cut out the hassle of dicing myself. 

*All ingredients and brands listed here found at my local Sav-a-Lot. Not a sponsored post.

You Will Also Need:
     - 9x13 Casserole Dish
     - Pam Cooking Spray (or some butter)
     - Measuring Cup (Opt - I winged the measurements)
     - A Spoon - I like to use wooden
     - A Large Skillet/Frying Pan - to brown meat
     - A Medium Sized Pot - to combine all ingredients 

Recipe:
1. Brown meat. Drain, and move to medium sized pot.

2. Pour in water and taco seasoning. Stir well. 

3. Mix in corn, [peppers, onions,] diced tomatoes, and black beans. Mix well. Let simmer for 10 minutes.

4. While simmering, prepare casserole dish. Preheat oven to 350. Spray down casserole dish. Place two tortillas down - next to each other to cover bottom of dish. Spread with half of refried beans, and half of meat mixture when ready. Sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese. Repeat with two more tortillas, beans, meat mixture and cheese. Top with two remaining tortillas and last cup of cheese.

5. Bake for 30 minutes.

Serve and Enjoy! I cut up on lettuce and tomatoes and added as a layer before my lasagna.

We didn't have any sprinkle cheese left, but if you do, you may want to garnish with some or with some sour cream.

Pretty Simple Slouch Hat - Crochet Pattern Review - Crochet n Crafts

I pattern tested the matching Pretty Simple Fingerless Gloves crochet pattern for my friend Rhelena of Crochet n Crafts last Fall. I recently pulled them out of my WIPs bin to finish and write about, and decided to work the matching slouch hat too. I really love the fit and slouch of this hat, and am looking forward to using my new set when the weather turns, and will be adding some to my EyeLoveKnots Etsy shop as well. The set would make a great gift for the approaching holiday season too!

Materials:
     - 150 Yards of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used about half a skein of Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in Red
     - I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook
     - Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends
     - Pretty Simple Slouch Hat, Free Crochet Pattern by Crochet n Crafts

Material Notes:
     Yarn Alternatives: Red Heart's With Love, Deborah Norville's Everyday Soft. Loops and Thread Impeccable #4 used in original pattern.

Time Spent:
     I had my hat finished in just over two hours.

Measurements:
     My finished hat measured 10.5" wide by 9.75" tall, and has a band that measured 10" wide.

Abbreviations:
     SC - Single Crochet
     BLO - Back Loop Only
     HDC - Half Double Crochet
     HDC2tog - Half Double Crochet Two Stitches Together

Pattern Notes:
     When working onto the back loops (or front loops), I like the work the last stitch under both loops. This helps to create a smooth, even edge and better security.

I worked the band as written but it came out way too small, even by going up a hook size (and two). I decided to rip it out, and work my go-to band which is:
     Chain 11. SC into the 2nd chain, and each chain across. (10 SC)
R2 - 75: Chain 1, turn. SC into the BLO of the 1st SC, and the next 8. SC in both loops of the last SC. (10 SC)

After slip stitch joining the back loop part, make sure to turn your piece so that the seam that you just created is on the inside of the hat.

I have worked a few hats in this manner, and always found too much bulk in the slouchy part from just sewing closed. To help with this, I worked the stitch pattern for 21 rows, and then began decreasing as such:
     R22: Chain 1. (HDC into the space between previous rounds of HDCs, HDC2tog over the same space and the next space, HDC into the same space) 19x. Join. (57 HDC)

     R23: Chain 1. (HDC into the space between previous rounds of HDCs, HDC2tog over the same space and the next) 19x. Join. (38 HDC)

     R24: Chain 1. (HDC into the space between previous rounds of HDCs, HDC2tog over the same space and the next space, HDC into the same space) 9x, 2 HDC into the next space. Join. (29 HDC)

     R25: Chain 1. (HDC into the space between previous rounds of HDCs, HDC2tog over the same space and the next) 9x, HDC into the next space, HDC2tog over the same space and the beginning chain stitch. Join. (20 HDC)

     At this point, I fastened off with a long tail, turned my hat inside out and sewed the hole closed.
With so many size, yarn type and color options, I would love to see them! Please share your photos on my EyeLoveKnots Facebook page, or our latest Yarn Fanatic Party Link Up!

3 Inch Bi-Colored Solid Granny Square the EyeLoveKnots Way - Photo Tutorial

Oops! Thought this was scheduled to be released this past Friday. Guess I forgot to reschedule after I edited...

I am working a project to be shared over at The Stitchin Mommy, and have shared this here as part of that project. This is a fun little square that can be used in many ways from embellishing, to pixel projects, to jewelry, to larger things like scarves and blankets, to name a few. If you would like to see projects done using these little squares, drop me a line below.

The reason why I chose to work my Bi-Colored Solid Granny in this manner, as opposed to others you may have seen, is because I hate fastening off, restarting and weaving in a bunch of ends. I came up with this way of working it to avoid that as much as possible. You will still have 6 ends to weave in.

Materials:
- Small Amount of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in Dark Green and Ivory
- J10/6mm Hook
- Tapestry Needle

Material Alternatives:
Some alternatives to I Love This Yarn include Red Heart's With Love, JoAnn's Big Twist, but with this tutorial, you can use any weight yarn and matching hook.

Time Spent:
Each square took me about 6 minutes to work up.

Measurements:
3" Square

Gauge:
14 DC by 8 Rows = 4"
Gauge for this project isn't essential, as long as your squares are consistent in size. Keep in mind, smaller or larger squares will produce smaller or larger projects.

Abbreviations:
DC - Double Crochet

Pattern Notes:
I hold my strands a little different and yarn over in some parts to avoid the other colored strand from being visible from the right side without having to drop it, as you will need to pick it back up later. You can see how it looks from behind in the above image.
*You may opt to work an invisible join at the end of Round 2 - I have a photo tutorial in my Chunky Baby Beanies post; or you may opt to work a slip stitch join. If you will be using the squares as they are to embellish projects or as an applique, I would suggest a clean invisible join. I knew I’d be joining mine together so I worked a slip stitch join.
Below you will find a Photo Tutorial, followed by just Instructions just in case it's easier to read it first. You can click on any image to view it larger.

Pattern - Photo Tutorial:
R1: With MC, Chain 5. Join to form a ring. Chain 2 (counts as a DC), 2 DC into the ring, chain 3, 3 DC into the ring,
R2: 

Pattern - Instructions:
With Green, Chain 5. Join to form a ring. Chain 2, 2 DC into the ring, chain 3, 3 DC into the ring, pull Ivory through, [holding Ivory over index finger and Green between middle finger and thumb, insert hook under Green to pull up a loop on hook, pull up Ivory over hook and complete chain. Move the Green strand behind the Ivory strand] 2x. Yarn over, insert hook into the ring, yarn over, pull through, yarn over, pull through 2 loops, hold strands the same as before and complete the DC. Move the Green strand to the back, work 2 DC, chain 3, 2 DC over the Green tail, yarn over, insert hook into the ring, yarn over, pull through, hold the strands the same as before, pull over the Green, yarn over and complete the 1st half of the DC, move the Green strand to the back and repeat to complete the 2nd half of the DC, but don’t move the Green strand. Drop Ivory, pull through Green to complete 1 chain, chain 2. Join to the top of the beginning chain 2, and fasten off both strands.

R2: With Green, attach slip knot to hook. Chain 2. Yarn over, insert hook into the chain space just finished and complete DC,
DC into the same chain space and the next 3 stitches, (2 DC, chain 3, 2 DC) into the next chain space, DC into the next 3 stitches, 2 DC into the next chain space, pull Ivory through and fasten off Green. Chain 2, 2 DC into the same chain space, DC into the next 3 stitches, (2 DC, chain 3, 2 DC) into the next chain space, DC into the next 3 stitches, 2 DC into the 1st chain space. Join to the 1st chain of the beginning chain 2. Fasten Off, and weave in ends.

Pretty Simple Fingerless Gloves - Crochet Pattern Review - Crochet n Crafts

I pattern tested this for my friend Rhelena of Crochet n Crafts last Fall. I really love how they came out, and they work up quickly. I am looking forward to working up several more pairs to both use personally when the weather turns, and add to my EyeLoveKnots Etsy shop. A pair of these would also make a great gift, especially if you add in the matching Pretty Simple Fingerless Slouch Hat.

Materials:
     - Small amount of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in Red
     - J10/6mm Crochet Hook (larger than recommended)
     - I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook (for final rows - larger than recommended)
     - Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends
     - Pretty Simple Fingerless Gloves, Free Crochet Pattern by Crochet n Crafts

Material Notes:
     Yarn Alternatives: Red Heart's With Love, Deborah Norville's Everyday Soft. Loops and Thread Impeccable #4 used in original pattern.

Time Spent: 
     I had my pair of gloves together in about an hour and a half.

Measurements:
     Ribbing measures 1 5/8" Tall by 3" Wide (when seamed); Thumb opening is about 1" long. Finished Glove measures 3.75" Wide by 6.25" Tall.

Gauge:
     Using J10/6mm, 3 V Sts = 2" Wide

Pattern Notes:
     As reference my measurements are: Knuckles - 7.5" in circumference; Palm - 3.75" long; Wrist - 6" in circumference

When working onto the back loops (or front loops), I like the work the last stitch under both loops. This helps to create a smooth, even edge and better security.

My glove didn't seem long enough - my knuckles were covered, but the top part of my palm was showing so I decided to add two more rounds of single crochet before the final round. This increased the length of the gloves from 5.5" to about 5.75" and gave me the coverage I desired.

I wanted my final edge to be a little tighter around my fingers so I worked the final two rounds of single crochet and the back post round in an I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook (one size smaller than the rest of my glove).

When I worked my thumb, it created a hole close to it. At first, I thought I messed up, but looking at the pattern picture, it's supposed to be like that so don't be alarmed - it's caused by the space in between the V Stitches. If it bothers you, you could always worked the thumb as straight half double crochets with the back post edging to create a more solid piece.

Overall, this pattern was fun, easy and quick. I love the simplicity of these gloves, yet they are versatile, warm and comfy. I have been sitting here typing up this review wearing them, and they have not caused me any discomfort in my typing process.

Alternative to the fingerless style, you could always continue working upward and once close to the top, just work a few decreasing rounds in straight half double crochet to create a mitten that covers your fingers, or you could work a piece and sew it onto the top of your glove and use them as convertible gloves. The length along your arm is also easily customizable by just adding more rounds before beginning your thumb hole.
With so many size, yarn type and color options, I would love to see them! Please share your photos on my EyeLoveKnots Facebook page, or our latest Yarn Fanatic Party Link Up!

Rescue Mission, Save the Kittens! - Living the Dream Wednesday

Mid August, my brother-in-law came home with three sweet little kittens that he came across while working for a client. The mother cat hadn't been around in a few days so he brought them home to take to a shelter. I happened to be leaving just as he was coming in, and quickly turned to my friend, Ashley, to get her opinion on what to do with them. She works at a well known veterinarian's office that sees many different types of animals. Right off the bat, she said if the kittens were taken to a shelter, they'd be euthanized. Being animal lovers, the two of us couldn't bare the thought, and so she decided to take the kittens for the night. I jumped in the car with the kittens, and dropped them off at her place. After a long night of feeding every few hours and an unexpected, pretty severe allergic reaction, Ashley made the decision that the kittens needed to go.

I came over early to pick her and the kittens up, and to the local shelter we went. They looked the kittens over, and informed me that they were less than 2 weeks old being that their eyes weren't open yet, and that because they weren't feeding on their own and there wasn't a lactating cat at the shelter that the kittens would be euthanized before days end. I couldn't bare the thought so I brought them back to the car. We headed down the street to Wawa to grab a cup of coffee and brainstorm. We reached out to friends and family, and called every cat rescue in the area but struck out all around. Had I been able to, I would have kept all three kittens myself but since that was absolutely not an option and Ashley was so allergic, we sadly traveled back to the shelter.

I took the dreaded walk back to cat receiving again, and sat outside the door. I held the three kittens in my arms, and cried. I just couldn't bare leaving them to die, and couldn't bring myself to take them in. Thankfully, while I was here, I received a message from one of the girls from work saying she would foster the kittens until permanent homes were found - YAY! I started jumping for joy, and ran back to the car with them. Ashley was also jumping for joy.

Later that day, I met the girl from work to drop off the kittens, and they have since found loving, permanent homes :)

Please, go rescue a cat from your local shelter. Due to overcrowding, they don't have long once dropped off and/or put up for adoption before they are euthanized. 

Happy Wednesday, Y'all :) 

PS If you have never seen a kitten being bottle fed, it is the absolute, most adorable thing! They look like they are drunk off of the milk, and curl up into a little ball in your hands.

Caramel Mocha Slanted Shell Cowl - Free Crochet Pattern

I originally designed this back in October 2015. I was just shooting for a large cowl since I hadn’t previously designed one, but it happened to be the perfect design to submit to the Happily Hooked Magazine for their Cold Weather Gear, Issue #21. It was also my first designed published in a magazine - how exciting! It combines one of my favorite yarns with my favorite crochet stitch, is nice and warm, and is the perfect accessory during the colder months as you can wear it around your neck as shown or pull it up over your head in case it gets windy.

Materials:
     - 710 yards of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used one skein each of Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in Light Taupe and Brown
     - I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook
     - Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends

Material Notes:
     Yarn Alternatives: Red Heart's With Love, Purl Essence Sincerely Everyday (JoAnn's).

Secondarily, you can use a lighter worsted weight yarn such as Deborah Norville's Everyday Soft, Caron's Simply Soft, Lion Brand's Wool Ease, etc but it will produce a slightly smaller cowl hood. Simply add to your beginning chain to make it the same size, or try going up a hook size.

Time Spent:
     I worked on this piece for several days, a little bit at a time. It took just under 7 hours to complete.

Measurements: 
     38" in circumference by 19" in Length

Gauge:
With I Love This Yarn and an I9/5.5mm Hook = 4" x 4"
     Chain 16, DC in the 4th stitch, and in each stitch across. (14 DC)
     R2 - R8: Chain 2, turn. DC in the 2nd stitch, and each stitch across.
     Fasten Off.

Abbreviations:
     HDC - Half Double Crochet
     SC - Single Crochet
     DC - Double Crochet

Pattern Notes:
     Joining will be to the first stitch of each row, not the beginning chain. 

Beginning chain 1 does not count towards final stitch counts.

Clusters will be worked into Single Crochet's.

Watch for turning directions - turning is not throughout.

To work color change, pull new color through at final yarn over in the last double crochet. I do have a photo tutorial - How to Change Yarn Colors in Crochet the EyeLoveKnots Way.

Pattern:
     With Light Taupe, Chain 126. Join to form a ring. Chain 1. HDC in the first chain, and each chain around. Join. (126 HDC)

R2: Chain 1. (SC, DC) in the 2nd HDC, [skip the next HDC, (SC, DC) in the next HDC] around. (63 clusters)

R3 - 30: Chain 1, turn. (SC, DC) in the 1st stitch, [skip the next stitch, (SC, DC) in the next stitch] around. Join.

At the end of the 30th round join the new color - in this case, Brown - and continue on with repeat.

R31 - 59: Chain 1, turn. (SC, DC) in the 1st stitch, [skip the next stitch, (SC, DC) in the next stitch] around. Join.

R60: Chain 1, turn. HDC in the 1st stitch, and each stitch around. Join. (126 HDC).

R61: Chain 1. Slip stitch in the 1st HDC, and each HDC around. Join. (126 slip stitches)

Fasten Off and Weave in Ends. I worked an invisible join. You can see a photo tutorial of this technique in my Newborn Twin Chunky Beanie post.

Chunky Cabled Capelet & Happily Hooked Magazine Issue 30

My Chunky Cabled Capelet can be found on the front cover of the latest issue of the Happily Hooked Magazine - September 2016, Issue 30 - which features some gorgeous garments, accessories and home decor all inspired by a Rustic Autumn.

This design was only my second project worked with cables, my first being the Cable Twist Hat that I shared back in April. Up until I tried this hat, I was super intimidated by crochet cables. If you are like I was - don't be! It is so easy to work, and create an amazing look and texture. I knew once I completed my Cable Twist Hat that I wanted to design a cabled capelet and so I set out to do so!

Other inspiration includes the Cowl Shoulder Cozy I completed back in January. This design was by Salena Baca for Red Heart Yarns, and I was in love with the design and how wonderful it was to wear around. Thanks for the inspiration Salena!

To complete this capelet, you will need 5 to 7 skeins of Deborah Norville's Serenity Chunky Yarn - I used the Oatmeal colorway - or 324 to 327 yards of Bulky #5 Yarn, and an L8/11mm crochet hook. Sizing is included for Small/Medium and Large/Extra Large sizes.

Marigolds of Avon - Living the Dream Wednesday

As mentioned before, my niece and I have been going on morning walks. I couldn't help but stop to take a photo of the entrance to this housing development covered in a beautiful combination of orange and yellow Marigolds, paired with the warm brick surroundings and bright white background. Love it!
