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.  […]

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, […]

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 […]

I was recently contacted by WhoopTee, a custom t-shirt company that lets you design your own custom t shirt.  They wanted to know if I would like to make a custom Love From The Oven shirt and give ten away to my readers.   Well of course, I mean what little girl who grew up sketching […]
