During my hiatus from social media and blogging, one of the things I received the most messages about was a request for my Freezer Cooking recipes and book! Prior to the break, it drove you all here by the thousands every single day. Other busy moms like you (and a handful of grateful dads too) seeking a way to get healthy homemade (or semi-homemade, at least) meals on the table while still maintaining the balance and having time for life’s more fun things!
The book use to be a free gift when you subscribed to my newsletter, but I’ve decided to make it public as I relaunch the blog!! Unfortunately, the six post Freezer Cooking series including freezable portioned toddler meals and to-go breakfasts will take some time to reinvent, but this book included the most popular recipes! The majority of these meals are prepped ahead, bagged, and frozen until ready to drop in the crockpot! I realize that the insta-pot is transforming homes nowadays, so hopefully while I work on reinventing the Freezer Cooking Series, I’ll include some great insta-pot options as well!
Freezer cooking looked much different the past two years with just my daughter and I. Cooking was honestly one of the hardest transitions as I pretty much only knew how to cook for a large family. But suddenly I was catering meals focused mainly on my young daughter, so that looked a lot different. I will be sharing those tips and ideas with you in a later post in case any other single mama’s need some help keeping their sanity and healthy meals on the dinner table!
It’s good to be back! Thanks again for all of your love and support and “welcome back” comments!!!

Honest to goodness, I thought it would be easier than it has been to find the right words to publish my first post on the new RATR site.
When I published my last post on the old site, I had no idea it would be the last for over two years. I didn’t know a lot of things at that point, but I knew my life was in the beginning of a major change.
Sadly, I was in such another frame of mind that I didn’t know when I painfully had it taken down that I failed to back it up, and lost over six years of content. As hard as it was to realize it was all gone, in a lot of ways it was appropriate. I believe it was a God-thing that the whole slate was wiped clean, to be made new – as a reflection of just how my own life has been.
Over the course of the last two years, I have continued writing on paper. My heart, my prayers, dreams, praises and more. Perhaps as the new RATR blossoms I will share some of those thoughts with you. Those that love me most have been urging me to do this for a long time, but my flesh has been resisting. It has been on my heart for a while to do, but I wasn’t sure it was the right timing… Then I recently attended a women’s weekend retreat and a woman praying over me, who I had never met, told me to write again. This woman, who didn’t know I previously had a successful blog was telling me to write again. That I needed to blog my story, and that one day the blogs would turn into a book. I was speechless. She knew nothing about me, yet as she was praying over me, the Lord was giving her the words He knew I needed to hear.
So here I am. Writing. Publicly. For the first time in over two years.
You will still find the usual recipes, tips for creating balance at home, housekeeping fun, health and beauty ideas and much more. But amidst all the “fluff”, it is my prayer that the Lord will use this space for His glory. That this will be a space for extending grace and sharing love with all of you. He’s given me a story. And it’s time to share it.
Love you all!!
Way more to come. But wanted to give my first HELLLLOOOOO!!!!!!!
Whew, it is good to be back in blog world.
Way more to come!!
