It’s been a big week around here, full of celebrating the release of our cookbook, From Freezer To Table. Many of you have been a part of that big week by sending us encouraging notes or posting pictures of your cookbook on social media. From the bottom of our hearts, we say thank you. Another way we were encouraged this week was when I (Rachel) opened my front door to this on release day:

This really has been the best week and our hearts are full. Psalm 126:3 really sums up our feelings, “The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.”

P.S. Make sure to check out the special gifts for those who pre-order our cookbook. Take a 60 second peek inside our book here…
