Cauliflower and Roasted Garlic Soup

 [This post has been updated from the Oven Love archives.] This soup is exceptional. Exceptional! It’s so good that every fall for the last four years, we’ve remembered it and had to have it again. You know how rare it is for me to make a recipe twice.. so I think this is going to […]

Baked Potato Casserole

We planted potatoes in our garden again this year. A LOT of potatoes. Anyone want some potatoes?? I feel like I’m saying “this-is-what-we-are-doing-with-our-garden-surplus” over and over again on this blog, but it’s usually when we have giant piles of produce on our counter that I have to be creative and come up with new recipes. […]

My Favorite Baked Chicken Nuggets

You know you’re a mom when not only do you a) have a favorite chicken nugget recipe, but b) you have a favorite baked chicken nugget recipe.  What’s that you see in my driveway? A minivan? Someone save me before I buy any mom jeans! Just kidding! I love motherhood. Wouldn’t trade it. My house […]

Chicken, Kale and Broccoli Casserole

Let’s start this with a .. YUM. Reasons to try this recipe: It’s full of healthy greens.  Dark, beautiful, curly kale and a little family-friendly broccoli. I like greens on their own, but when you add pasta and cheese? That’s a win. It’s freezable. I made the full recipe; baking up half of it for our […]

Guest Post: Chicken Parm Bake

Hello, Oven Lovers! I’m Jessica (from Jessica Lynn Writes and The Tale of Two Kitchens) and I’m so happy to be here today! I know Natalie from my days of living in Georgia, and as much as I love living my new digs in Italy, I miss seeing her face almost every day and getting […]

Spicy Kale Lasagna

Mmm.. I am having good memories of this lasagna. Are you ready for cool weather comfort foods?  I’m sure you northerners are.  I’m getting in the mood myself, but the southern weather is getting in the way!  This lasagna is a great way to transition into fall- not too heavy, since there’s no meat involved.  […]

Fall Harvest Salad

Can you believe I got off my pregnant behind (well, I guess I’m still on it) to write you a post today?  Things have been nuts/bananas around here lately- pregnancy drama-rama, busy schedules, all of that. I have sort of lost my cooking mojo lately, to be honest. I joined a little freezer co-op a […]

Swiss Chard Dumplings in Chive Broth

It’s been quite a month over here.  Lots of vegan and vegetarian recipes, some personal, vegan-related drama and some probably not veganize-able (what?) Nutella cookies.  I’m closing out all of this nonsense today with a recipe that can work for all diets; carnivores, vegetarians and vegans alike. I’ve made this recipe twice in the recent […]

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 […]
