The 'Frozen' star gave birth to daughter Lincoln in March 2013 - her first with husband Dax Shepard - and she is determined to take advantage of her time at home with her baby girl.
She told USMagazine.com: "I'm back with baby full-time, which is so nice.
"I want to be very hands on. I want to cook for my family and feel present for them. I'm always missing her when I'm not there."
The proud mother also admitted she would love the chance to work professionally with Dax again after they most recently shared the screen in 2012's 'Hit and Run'.
She added: "He's been hired to write so many other projects for other people.
"I'm always walking into the room and saying, 'Well hey, if there's a part in there that you could throw the old bags' way that'd be great.'
"I would of course work with him again in a second. He's able to work with his friends and me in a very collaborative way."
The couple tied the knot in October, seven months after the birth of their daughter.
