One of our goals was to design patterns with purpose - useable items for home that would also be great gifts. Our Micro-Safe Hot Holders fulfill that purpose perfectly! IJ1102-2T You know how hot your bowl gets when you heat up soup or pasta for more than one minute? Then you burn your fingers grabbing the dish out of the door and carrying it to your counter or plate? No more! When you use these bowls you can safely take out your dishes without fear of burned fingers. IJ1102-4T The bowls come in three different sizes - ramekin, cereal bowl and casserole sized. Here is the most important thing about these bowls: every item you use to make them must be 100% cotton! The thread, fabric, bias tape and batting - if it isn't 100% cotton you can end up with a fiery mess. No one wants that. IJ1102-7T Another safety tip: never put in the cotton bowls on their own and microwave. Without the humidity of food heating up, the fabric will burn. (I'm not entirely sure why you would just microwave the cotton bowls on their own, but now you know not to.) IJ1102-6T Because the micro-safe bowls are made with 100% cotton batting, they aren't super firm. We thought you might want to create a fabric bowl that is just decoration, so we included directions for making a stiffer bowl in the large size. For this size you will use Timtex instead of batting. Just remember, this version doesn't go in the microwave! IJ1102-3T So, want to save your burned hands and win a copy of the Micro-Safe Hot Holders for yourself? This contest is now closed.

Potato Soup!

linda on

MY favorite soup to make is Chicken Dumpling soup. The great vegetables and fresh chicken is great but the best is the egg dumplings with fresh from the garden Chives. Can’t really be beat.

I love to make Turkey soup with the bones from a large bird at Christmas.

Elizabeth Speicher on

Our family has a lot of favorite homemade soups, in fact my husband says if it isn’t homemade don’t bother. If we had to choose I guess it would be Maryland crab soup, which basically is a lot like Manhattan clam chowder but with the kicky, spicy punch of Old Bay Seasoning. Of course the seasonality is a part of our liking, other proteins can be had year round, but you have to wait for crabbing season for crab soup if you want the best.
Now on to the important matter of just where can I get the pattern for these microwave hot holders. Practical and attractive, I need to make sets for my 101 year old mother, my daughter in South Korea and my dear sister in law who is currently undergoing chemo for ovarian cancer and of course myself. These would be a real boon to us all.

Mary on

Made from scratch chicken noodle soup.! I simmer a whole chicken with celery ,carrots and onion to make a rich broth . While it cooks I make from scratch gluten free egg noodles. When the chicken is cooked I pull it off the bones and add it back and toss in the noodles to cook. Perfect for snowy Colorado days

Saute onion in 2T EVOO, add zucchini chunks and peeled potato chunks, sprinkle with 1T curry powder, 2T (yes, that is not a mistake) salt and saute for 1 minute, cover with water and boil until veg are tender. Cool to lukewarm and blend with immersion blender until smooth. You can add some fat free yogurt, sour cream, or cream when blending. YUM!
