Hey! My name is Ali, and I’m really happy that you’re here!
I’m the blogger behind Gimme Some Oven, and I’m all about creating recipes that are fresh, creative, quick, easy, and perfect for sharing with people you love.
I do all of the photo-taking, recipe-creating, food-styling, and lots of taste-testing around here. But then I also occasionally share on our Life page about living life as a 30-something here in Kansas City, where I spend my days cooking, book-clubbing, music-playing, pour-over-coffee-drinking, DIY-project-ing, city-exploring, world-traveling, and soaking up lots of time hanging with some great friends. Oh, and hanging out with my #1 sidekick and crumb catcher — my cute pup, Henry.
One of my favorite things on earth is getting to spend time around the table with good people and good food. All the better when that food is tasty and prepared homemade. And, if you ask me, even better if that food is quick and easy to prepare, so that you can enjoy hanging out and making memories with friends and family you love, instead of stressing out over a soufflé in the kitchen. So that’s what we do here. To get started, just check out our mega recipe index of simple and amazing recipes, that also now includes options for various dietary needs. Then whip up your masterpiece, be sure to tag it as #gimmesomeoven on Instagram so that I can say hey, and then dive in!
One of my other favorite things in life is getting to know people and their stories. Oh man, I just think that people are pretty much the best. And I also think that we have loads to learn from each other about what it can look like to live awesome and meaningful lives. So whether that be conversations around work, relationships, creativity, health, entertaining, traveling, and beyond — any conversations about learning to live better lives happen here too.
