The site has been relaunched! I am thrilled to debut the new design for RACHEL SCHULTZ | A HOUSEHOLD ALMANAC and know it will be a more pleasant reading experience for you. (New graphic design calls for a fresh subtitle too.) You are already seeing how much more aesthetically pleasing the place is, and I also want to highlight some of the improved features.


In the left sidebar, we have several new goodies – David’s rotating list of the best recipes I have made (that is valuable info, my friends), what I am currently reading, some love for my favorite blogs, and the trusty instagram feed. At the bottom of the site, you will see links to the posts that are most popular now.

In the center column, along with posts you will find the handy printable recipe card, buttons for social media sharing, related posts for further reading, and the expanded category filing system you can use to look for even more similar content in the archives.

Speaking of, the recipe index tab is possibly my favorite part of the new site’s function. The recipes are much, much more easy to browse. Try them out by clicking “DESSERT, PASTA, SLOW COOKER” etc. at the top of the page. This same layout has been applied to the apartment and books tabs too. Even better, the search bar’s capabilities are more organized and helpful now too. So by all means, query to your heart’s content.

The podcast graphic in the sidebar and the podcast tab will both take you to a new, organized catalog of all the Rachel & Friends episodes. And while you are clicking around those, the about and contact tabs have been refreshed too. On the contact page you can find where to subscribe to receive e-mail updates for new blog posts.


This endeavor to completely revamp the site has been in process for over a year. (Well, maybe more like since the day I started my blog.) Researching for a really exceptional designer and developer is a lot of work! Jane Riley and Brandi Bernoskie started work on this project in September and you saw it go live on October 25.

Please let me know of any feedback you would like to share about the new look, especially alerting me to any kinks or bugs you find for us to fix!

    Hi Rachel! I read your blog every day, and wanted to let you know I think the new aesthetics are so lovely! I am also a newlyish married twenty-something named Rachel, and I started reading your blog about a year ago when I had absolutely no idea how to cook anything. Your recipes and thoughts have touched my life, so I just wanted to drop a line and also tell you congrats on your baby boy!
