My name is Christi. I LOVE to bake. I HATE to cook. This works out great for dessert, but not so well for dinner. Oh well, I’ve accepted it, and have the pizzeria on speed dial. I love baking for others – for holidays, for special occasions, for gifts or just for the heck of it – I mean who doesn’t love random cake pops on a Tuesday for no reason??? I share most of my baking and treat making ideas on my blog – Love From The Oven. My favorite things are my two daughters, open adoption, photography, Diet Coke, fries with ranch dressing, my iPad, 80’s hair bands, frozen margaritas, sarcasm, Marc Jacobs handbags, rainy days, Bravo on my DVR, hot pretzels at Disneyland, decorating for the holidays, my husband doing the dishes and the distant memory of sleeping in.
