Frozen Smoothie Bags

I am very excited to share this idea with you today! If you are looking to streamline your morning routine or looking for a quick and healthy mini-meal or snack for the kids, pay attention! This is a good one. I was inspired to make these frozen smoothie bags by The Tidy Nest‘s make-ahead freezer […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chia Bites

If you spend any time on these vast internets searching for recipes (which you probably do since you’re reading this blog), you may have noticed the trend in bite-sized snacks. There are the sweeter types like cake balls/cake pops and cookie dough balls as well as healthier versions like raw energy balls. I’ve been wanting […]

Gyoza Pan-Fried Dumplings

I don’t know if you noticed, but I don’t make much Asian food around here (remember Project Food Blog?). That’s not because I don’t like it, I just get a little intimidated by it and don’t know where to get reliable recipes. I’ve made a few Asian items- classic Kung-Pao Chicken, Lighter Sesame Chicken, Beef […]

Fresh Strawberry Cake with Cream Cheese Swiss Meringue Buttercream

I am considering this Lucy’s very first birthday cake. Okay, okay.. right now, it’s more for Mama than it is for little Lucy, but I will certainly make it for her again some day. Lucille Naomi joined the world a week ago today; at home, in the water, and much quicker than I expected. But […]

Guest Post: Tomato Pesto & Mozzarella Melts

Hey there, “Oven Love” readers! My name is Tina, from My Life as a Mrs! Natalie and I met in Atlanta last year at the BlogHer Food conference (Photo Here)… & we hit it off immediately! It’s hard to NOT hit it off with Natalie – she is super sweet, bubbly, and an absolutely gorgeous person inside and out! 🙂 Anyhow, since […]

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

If you’re craving something sweet, rustic and easy to put together, than this cookie will be calling your name. Just looking at this iron skillet reminds me of summers spent at my family’s cabin- but that’s just nostalgia talking, since our typical treats up there were things like oatmeal pies and roasted marshmallows. But I […]

Freezer-Friendly Chicken Enchiladas

Forgive me if I don’t have much to say today. I am now living in the Land Beyond Due Dates (again) and I’m having trouble thinking of anything more than this baby’s pending arrival. My brain and body are fried from weeks of early contractions and the last few sleepless nights of false labor. Can’t […]

Make Ahead Baked Oatmeal

Baked oatmeal is a great way to start your morning. I just ate this beautiful breakfast and the day is already off to a great start. Growing up in Central PA, baked oatmeal was always one of my favorite treats to have when we went out for breakfast. Every little diner and family restaurant has […]

Salted Peppermint Rice Krispie Treats

I really wasn’t planning on sharing more sweets with you, but occasions to bake keep coming up out of nowhere! I made these last night for some friends, and then whipped up another quick batch for the hubs to take to work today.  This recipe took me less than 15 minutes to pull together- talk […]

Today I’ve got some more sugary treats for you in honor of the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, hosted by the fabulously talented Lindsay of Love and Olive Oil and Julie of The Little Kitchen. I have had the pleasure of meeting these two darlings in […]
