Lovin' the Oven 

Parents: Jeff Weaber & Katina Martin

Children: Ada, 5; Isla, 2; Finley, 17 months

Jeff Weaber and Katina Martin like to host sprawling backyard parties at their Salisbury home. Martin, a midwife and naturopath, often invites the mothers and babies she's served over the years.

That adds up to quite a crowd. How to feed it? With a pizza oven, of course. Two years ago, Weaber read up on so-called cob ovens, recruited some friends and built one in four days.

"You just get out there and slap it together," says Weaber, who is confident that most families could assemble something comparable in their own backyards. Even his daughter, then 3, pitched in on the construction.

"Kids love to get dirty!" he says.
