Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

"All Better Soup"

Well, last night was a rough one.
While the rest of the family (myself included) have been fighting a nasty cold, I was pleasantly surprised that our 16 month old hadn't caught it.
Then last night happened.
Poor baby was up crying half of the night. Once she wore herself out (and after a few drinks of water, a dose of infant Motrin, numerous nose wipes, and some Vicks baby rub) she insisted that the only way she would sleep was if I was holding her. So, yeah... not much sleep...

When we're sick  I like to make "All Better Soup". We call it "All Better Soup" because it has chicken broth, garlic, and chile powder... you know...  stuff that makes you feel better when you're sick.
One of the best things about it is that it's quick and easy to make. Let's face it... as much as I love to cook, that's the last thing I want to do when I'm sick.
It's yummy, too! Even my 16 month old likes it. In fact, she is eating it right now.
Here's how you make it:

Quick Garlic-y Egg Drop Soup (AKA- "All Better Soup")

What You Need:

1 TB butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups chicken broth OR 4 cups water and 1 1/2 TB chicken bouillon granules
1 tsp chile powder of your choice. (I used 1/2 tsp each pasilla chile and New Mwxico chile powders)
2 eggs, beaten.

What You Do:

  1. First gather all of the ingredients... this soup makes up fast!
  2. On medium heat, melt the butter in a large saucepan or a pot big enough to hold 4+ cups water.
  3. Add the garlic and cook and stir about a minute. Don't let it brown.
  4. Add the chicken broth or water and bouillon granules AND the chile powder.
  5. Stir and bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce heat to a simmer, and slowly add beaten eggs, while stirring. Cook another minute or two, until the eggs are fully cooked.
  7. Serve warm.
That's it.
Sorry I don't have a picture! If I get one soon, I'll edit it in.



  1. Sorry you all have been sick. It's always bad when the baby gets sick, too. This soup looks wonderful- I will have to try this soon!
