Saturday Stuff at Love From The Oven

Hello November! Hopefully everyone had a very happy Halloween.  We had so few trick or treaters last night.  I think maybe the doorbell rang six times.  Such a bummer, I love seeing the kids and costumes.   I guess it’s a good thing I gathered up a bunch of recipes to use up leftover Halloween candy, […]

Halloween Recipes And Ideas

Happy Saturday!  It’s been a while since I’ve had a free flow chatty post, and you know what, I kind of miss them.  When I started blogging, long before Love From The Oven, back in the days of Xanga (anyone remember that?),  I used my blog as a journal, sharing stories, thoughts, feelings and any […]

Back To School – That’s My Kid

Back To School #thatsmykid

It’s that time again, back to school time!  It seems like our summer went by far too quickly, and now we must return to homework, backpacks, early mornings and tight schedules.  My daughters are eight years apart in school, so I have one in preschool and one in sixth grade.  In our district, sixth grade […]

Colorful Kitchen Accessories – Fun Friday Finds

Colorful Kitchen Accessories

I get a lot of questions about where I find my colorful and fun kitchen accessories.   I love lots of pops of color in my kitchen.   I figure I spend so much time in there that it should be a bright and happy place.    Right down to your spatula smiling at you.   I noticed that […]

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Baking With Your Kids

As a mom to two girls, I know that it’s not just what I say to my girls that matters. I never cease to be amazed at how much children pick up through observation. Everything we do, say to others and say to ourselves, our kids pick up on. It’s so important to me to […]

Pretty Organization – Sweet This Week

Pretty planners, calendars and accessories

As I do at the start of every year, I’ve been looking for, pinning, collecting and buying things to help get myself organized.   Unfortunately I’m far better at obtaining organizational materials than I am at say, oh I don’t know, actually using them.   After sharing a pic or two on Instagram, I’m certain I’m not […]

Holiday Stress And Taking A Break

Holiday Stress

Is it just me or is this time of year often full of holiday stress? For the past decade, I have always had jobs that were pretty crazy during the holidays.  For over seven years I ran a jewelry company called Sentimental Silver, and Christmas always meant chaos.   Orders would triple, and since my […]
