I had to share this recipe, it's is so good - and still delicious for leftovers.


1.5 lb. boneless/skinless chicken breast, chopped (easiest if partially frozen)
1 tbsp. oil
1 onion, chopped

1 (10 oz.) can tomato sauce
1 can chopped tomatoes - mexican seasoned
1 (4 oz.) can diced green chilies
1 tsp. red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp. ground cumin

1 (16 oz.) can enchilada sauce
1/2 lb. cheddar cheese, shredded
12 corn tortillas
2 c. sour cream

sour cream
black olives, sliced
1 green onion, minced

Saute chicken with oil, then add in onion and cook until all are tender.

Add tomato sauce, choppe tomato, green chilies, vinegar and cumin. Simmer 5 minutes and set aside.

Heat enchilada sauce in pan. Set aside.

Heat each tortilla in a dry griddle until flexible. Drip or brush with heated enchilada sauce, then fill with chicken mixture. Add some sour cream and cheese and roll up. Place in rectangle baking dish.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes, then remove and garnish with remaining sour cream and black olives and green onions.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Bavarian Rockstar socks -- toe-up pattern on: November 05, 2006 08:26:27 PM
Hey all! I am so excited to share my newest pattern.

http://d-made.com/knitting/First choice350px.jpg

This toe-up sock knit with luscious Socks that Rock yarn from Blue Moon Fiber Arts, has twisted stitches which do not require a cable needle. The pattern is memorizable after you make it past the first repeat. The yarn is just totally amazing to work with. It's better than Koigu KPPPM in my opinion.
I love the middle cable pattern, I first used it on a toe-up worsted weight sock pattern.

If you are bored of top-down ribbed socks, this may be the answer!


P.s. If you need help getting cabling w/o a cable needle, check out this link from Grumperina
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cabled Chunky Turtleneck - Vouge Fall/06 on: August 16, 2006 02:33:42 PM

Pattern: Tahki Stacy Charles - Esther Yun-Mancini's Cabled Chunky Turtleneck Vouge Fall/06 Advertising section.
Yarn used: Lion Brand Alpaka, 30% Alpaca, 30% Wool, 40% Acrylic.

Details: The was a quick knit with a totally different yarn than the pattern was designed for. Luckily I made the sleeves a lot longer and the body longer as well, probably by 5 inches. When I put it on, it fits just right, the measurements, seem pretty petite to me.
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Felted sweater quilt on: August 09, 2006 03:53:30 PM

This is a 3 ft x 3 ft  square. Any suggestion on what to use for an edge? I was thinking a light batting in beween the wool and a natural colored flannel fabric on the back.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Scarf hoodie - w/ pattern on: August 05, 2006 12:02:33 AM
This unusual accessory has been on my list to design since this photo of Uma Thurman  http://www.imdb.com/gallery/ss/0377471/Ss/0377471/M019.jpg
was sent out to the local SNB e-mail list about a year ago. She is wearing a scarf with a hood attached. It almost looks like a vest.

Here is my version with a cable twist so it's not such a boring knit. I started this Wednesday night and just finished it tonight, Friday. I'm thinking this could be the type of accessory work with a jeans jacket, you know how a hood looks cute coming out of a jeans jacket, but a bulky sweater hardly fits in? This is the answer! I don't think I'd wear it as I am in the photo, but I needed to model the hood design. I'll get a photo this week with it in action.

This is knit up with KnitPicks ShineWorsted and I loved the yarn. The stitches turned out very nice looking on size 7 needles and I look forward to knitting with it again. This yarn is perfect for knitters dealing with warmer climates.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Widdershins from Knitty on: July 28, 2006 04:43:12 PM

I really enjoyed making these, I prefer a providional cast-on, short-row toe, but the heel contruction is brilliant!!
If you make these, make sure to note the larger than normal sock yarn gauge. Cascade Fixation is what I used.

I am very happy with how this skirt turned out! The waistband uses crossgrain ribbon. It looks and feels great. I wear size 10 women's jeans and made size 18 on the pattern.

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knit Cuffs - wristwarmers on: March 01, 2006 03:22:22 PM
I am totally in love with my wristwarmers now that I've tried them. They just keep your wrist veins pumping warm.

Here is my first pair - made with a pattern from "One of Susannas"

and my next pair is of my own design (called the Duffer Cuff)  THe argyle chart is insired by "See Eunny Knit!"

I've posted the http://www.d-made.com/knitting/patterns/patterns.html pattern for the Duffer Cuff on my free patterns page.

The Duffer Cuff is a great project for practicing two-color knitting and an alternate use for sock yarn.
