March Wrap Up

March 2015 Love From The Oven

Where did March go?  I mean really.  It was January like 15 minutes ago.   Every month I mean to do a wrap up post, and then one month turns into three.  Whoops, best intentions! So here’s what we’ve been up to in March.  Let’s start with food! I have been on a major citrus kick.  […]

Make Meaning Party

Make Meaning Party

When I asked my daughter what she wanted to do for her 12th birthday this year she replied, “make candles”.   That was an unexpected reply, but one that sounded like fun, so it was time to put together a candle making party. Before my oldest daughter was born, I made both soap and candles as […]

Tips For Baking With Kids

Baking With Your Kids

When you bake as often as I do, and have kids, it’s pretty common to get asked about baking with kids. While I don’t bake with my kiddos as often as some might think, when developing a recipe, you really don’t want an extra 5 tablespoons of baking powder dumped in by your assistant! I […]

Fitbit Flex vs Samsung Gear Fit

Gear Fit Versus Fitbit

A few weeks ago I had shared a photo or two on Instagram about my Samsung Gear Fit and my Fitbit Flex, and found that a lot of people were really curious about which I liked best, how they compared and what my thoughts were on the two.  Today I’m sharing my thoughts on both, […]

I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday.  We did, and I’m so sad to see the break come to an end.   We didn’t do all the things, see all the people or go all the places that I wanted to, but we hung out together, and we kind of did a little bit of […]

Holiday Baking

My friends at Glam Media recently asked if they could send me a Dell Venue 8 Tablet to try out, and if I could share some of the ways that I use technology to help with my holiday planning.  Given that I can’t imagine getting ready for the holidays without some help from my tech, […]

Saturday Stuff

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, […]

Blog Contributors Wanted

Love From The Oven is looking for blog contributors.

For the past year, I have been thinking about adding a few contributors to the blog.  I’ll think about it, then get all indecisive about it, kind of the same way I do when my husband asks where we should go to dinner.  But I keep coming back to it.  Being a one woman show […]
