Marshmallow Pumpkin Pops For Halloween… With Sugary Skulls

marshmallow pumpkin bag

When I came across a giant bag of pumpkin shaped marshmallows at the store, it was clear to me that they needed to be made into chocolate covered marshmallow pops.   Another quick, easy no bake treat – while it may technically be Fall, it’s still over 100 degrees here in AZ, so no bake treats […]

It’s not really a secret that I love Peeps.   There was the whole Peeps Week here on Love From The Oven, and of course the Push Pop Peeps that a few of you may have seen here or there.   Brightly colored sugar coated holiday marshmallows – fun stuff if you ask me. While I was […]

Peace, Love & Cake Pops…. While I generally do not sell my sweets and treats, I do take special requests from friends and family.  Last week one of my fellow dance moms (yes, I’m a dance mom – though I like to think not quite like these dance moms) asked me if I could make […]

Instead of making my favorite banana muffins or pumpkin muffins today, I decided to combine the two into one.    These pumpkin banana bread muffins are delicious, moist and super low-fat.   They also have the most overwhelmingly yummy scent while baking, much more so than almost any other bread I’ve made.

Double Down Chocolate Power Muffins


I may have mentioned a time or two (or ten) that some of my favorite recipes are my muffin recipes.   They are probably my most personal recipes, as they are the ones I have developed for my daughters – working hard to pack them full of healthy ingredients while making them delicious enough that my […]

Mini Kitchen Makeover – Cute Baking Related Decor Ideas


For a few months now I’ve been dreaming about re-doing my kitchen.    There’s the type or re-do I’d love to do (that whole cabinets, counter tops, floors, take it out of the 70’s tract home look type of thing), and there’s the reality re-do, which is more like paint and some accessories.   My kitchen has […]
