Gradual Changes…

Things are getting nuts again around here.

I had a three day break though, so I’m good. Or not.

Anyways…I am realizing that I probably will not manage to my big reveal of the new blog look and name won’t be happening by the end of this month, which was my goal.

I decided to roll out the changes gradually instead. Partly because I just can’t wait to get my new header up! For now, my URL will remain the same, that’s something I’ll tackle when (if?) things calm down ever.

I hope you are all having a great week. Let me know what you think of the new header, and keep in mind that things will be becoming much more cohesive and pretty in the upcoming weeks.

Thanks for being the best readers ever.



When you make a recipe from my site tag it with #RachelCooks!
I love to see what you're creating!


  1. Good luck with the blog move, etc. Sometimes these things take forever (my new site is taking so much longer than I would have thought) so I definitely understand!

  2. Cute new header. Make the changes as they come and try to take care of yourself Rachel. It sounds like you have had sooooooo much on your plate. The weight of the world sometimes rest on womens’ shoulders. Truly.

  3. Love it Rach! It’s clean, simple, and cute! Can’t wait to see more!

  4. Ahhh I’m LOVING the changes already! Simple and fun header – great job!!!

  5. I like the new header, name of blog and simplicity! Always fun to modify your blog and tweak and tweak.

  6. Cute! I like the simplicity of it. Excited for you and your new adventure! Hope life calms down a bit for you – but I don’t think the lives of parents with young (or old!) kids ever calm down again!

  7. Your header is very cute! Good luck with all the changes – no matter what it looks like on the outside, your recipes will always be great!

  8. Love the new header! Clean, to the point, and cute!

  9. Love the new header! Good luck with all the changes. Before you know it everything will be the way you want it. :)

  10. I like the new header too! Although I have to admit that the old “Not Rachael Ray” header made me giggle every time I saw it. And a HUGE “Thank You” for not saying “Yummo” and “EVOO”!!

  11. I love the new header and look forward to seeing the rest of the blog designs in the coming month(s)!Hang in their friend…

  12. LOVE IT! Love how clean it looks. Love the use of the skillet. Looking GOOD!!!!

  13. Love the header! It is so clean and simple. And I hope everything is ok with you and your family – I’m sure your end product will be awesome! :)

  14. You must be incredibly anxious to see the final product. I know that I was when my blog changed a long time ago (and I’m due for a new look again). It’s such a process… But I love how it’s looking so far! I can’t wait to see how it turns out :)

  15. The new header looks wonderful!

  16. Love the new header and direction you are taking things! Taking it bit by bit is good, less stressful (and fun for us!)

  17. I’m really digging the header!! Totally a direct representation of you:)

  18. No one is holding you to a timeclock on this project, girl! Whenever you get to it, you do. That’s how I approached my own bloggie changes and that’s all that any of us can do…do you best, we’re all here, when you are!

  19. I love the new header! I hope things calm down soon, hang in there!

  20. Love it, Rachel. It’s simple and fun. I think it fits your blog perfectly.

  21. Love it! Clean, simple, and pretty. :) I hope things settle down soon and that your family stays healthy and happy.

  22. Thank you Kathryn!

  23. I really like the header and I love the tagline – food, family and fun are what you’re all about! I’m sorry things are still so crazy, I hope they do calm down soon.
