Papaya Cream Popsicles (Papaya Paletas)

Popsicles, again? Yes, always. Orange popsicles, that is, since I apparently that’s my specialty. (See these creamsicles and mango yogurt pops for the proof.) While cleaning out the fridge last week, I came upon half a papaya that needed some love (aka I didn’t have the heart to throw it out.) Usually I buy papaya […]

Sweet Cannoli Fruit Dip

¬†Looking for something to do with that homemade ricotta? Who am I kidding? None of you have made any ricotta since Monday. (If you have, I salute you and we are destined to be BFFs.) I must be the only crazy person with a fridge full of raw milk and an interest in cheese making. […]

Homemade Raw Milk Ricotta Cheese

Ever since we started drinking raw milk, I have been itching to make some cheese with it. The only thing getting in my way is a tiny human with a serious appetite for milk- we almost never have any milk leftover for cooking or experimenting. Last week I got hit with The Lucky Stick and […]

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

I love posts that have the labels “chocolate” and “vegetables” together. Sometimes it seems my main goal in life is figuring out how to fit chocolate into every meal. Still working on it.

One of my recent favorites is this recipe for Creamsicles. Orange Creamsicle is a classic summer flavor in my mind. My first taste of this […]

Cream Puff Cupcakes [My 500th Post!]

FIVE HUNDRED posts. Wow. That is a lot of food, people! I am amazed that the little food blog I started on a whim in September of 2008 has survived (and thrived!) until today. There’s been a little bit of everything here on Oven Love, hasn’t there? Lots of sweet desserts, tons of breakfast and […]

Mint Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

Happy Wednesday! I’m here to introduce you to the most popular treat in my freezer- Mint Cookies and Cream Ice Cream. I’ve mentioned my abundance of garden mint before, but things have gotten even wilder! This mint is taking over the garden like a boss! I’ve been thinking about making mint ice cream with it […]

Farfalle con Broccoli

Before I dip into the vegan recipes, let’s warm up with something vegetarian. Let’s keep the cheese and cream for just a little while longer, shall we? This dish feels like something you would make if you lived in Italy, went to market, saw a beautiful head of broccoli and just came home and put […]
