“As a team, Bob and I possessed the unique gift of restoration. We saw what could be instead of what was. We discovered that mistakes can be corrected, wiring replaced, small spaces enlarged, and old homes once discarded could be made habitable. More than habitable, really. We could make them comfortable, beautiful, charming… a home.” (Excerpt from Hungry for Home)


“In a time where conversation is replaced with text messaging, and dinner equals Grubhub, there is still no place like home. As an entrepreneur running several businesses, a wife, mom, sister, and friend, life can get busy, and those conveniences make life seem a lot easier. Sometimes, in the hustle and bustle of it all, you need a gentle reminder of what’s truly important… I never thought all the beautiful feelings of home, family, and love could be encapsulated onto the pages of a book, but somehow she did it. And all roads lead to home!”

—Terri Matthews, author, Emmy-award winning television host, businesswoman, and autism-advocate

“Ruth McKeaney’s personal stories and wise words will spark readers to rethink and reimagine what home life can be! Hungry For Home shows how family traditions and recipes feed our souls. This book provides a roadmap to make moments at home both meaningful and memorable. Thank you, Ruth, for sharing your unique talents and insights—you’ve created a home filled with love and joy, and it’s fun to feel inspired. Blessed indeed by Hungry For Home.”

—Sarah Perot, President of the Sarah and Ross Perot, Jr. Foundation

“You will experience a nostalgia for all things family and togetherness as you take in every page of Hungry For Home. I found myself not only getting inspired to try new recipes and introduce fun new traditions, but it caused me to hit the pause-button on the lightning- paced speed that life has become. Ruth has magically found a way to give practical and attainable ideas for this very busy mom to start incorporating into her home. It’s a beautiful reminder that leaving a legacy of memories in the form of time spent together with your family at HOME is so much more important than anything money can buy.”

—Jill Donovan, author, speaker, former attorney and law professor, and the founder of Rustic Cuff

“Just seeing this makes me hungry—- to be with you and join in the conversations around the kitchen and gaming tables, and in the barn and by the fire pit and fireplaces. Wow! What joy, full of life Together, laughter, tears, tales, The Word, and celebrations; and, preparations for new beginnings, and new homesteads.
Thank you, Ruth and Bob for making it happen. To life Together!” Paul Morken

“My wonderful friend Ruth McKeaney has written a timely book about the lost art of homemaking. Today, many of us are striving to make a place for ourselves in this world, that some of us have neglected our responsibility to create a place where warm memories live and Love never dies, in our very homes. I am truly excited for this book.”
