Life at the ranch has continued to be fun and interesting. Been doin lotsa stuff, got lotsa pics, but they are pretty hard to upload here, so there is a new space for us. Please feel free to stop by, and let me know what you would like more of, and what you would like less of! It's a learning curve for me.
God bless you all and have a fabulous Christmas!!<

look forward to hearing from you!!

what a beautiful world you live in with beautiful people (and animals!). such a difference from my NYC upbringing. thanks for sharing. i'll keep watching with wonder and amazement. i think the only advice i have is that your pictures repeat from your "09 on the range" and photo albums.

Those pics are fabulous! Reminds me of when I worked as a ranch hand! I had fun reading about the milking machine! Life on the range is never boring, that's for sure!

Petey, I really enjoyed your post on my blog, Coastal Cooking Chronicles. Yes, we could be twins and have so much in common. My husband's hometown is Bakersfield and we have been up to Tehachapi many times. We once spoke of moving there, prior to coming to Oregon. We must keep in touch! Would love take some photos on your farm someday (photography is a passion and serious hobby). Going to make some Snickerdoodles tonight and enjoy some hot chocolate. I look forward to following your blog! Merry Christmas to you & yours!

Hey Petey! I checked out your new blog today (left a comment and subscribed to it, too:D).Love everything about it. Don't change a thing, you're doin' great! Things have been busy around my place. Between the bad weather and my hubby being VERY busy with the cows. Things getting stuck in the snow and mud and our dogs running off down the road to eat the neighbors chickens! Never a dull moment, I swear!! Happy New Year to you and your family!!

About Me
Kids are raised, we are ranchhands on a 250,000 acre working cattle ranch 110 miles from the nearest small town, so we raise a lot of our own food, vegetables, fruits, milk,eggs and meat. Love riding and working cattle, but find myself spending a lot more time in the kitchen, and the garden.
My favorite things to cook
Having 2 Jersey cows as well as milk goats, playing with fresh milk is a hobby, making our own butter, yogurt, sour cream, cheeses, soap and all the other great stuff you can do with fresh raw milk.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade from scratch...anything! All traditions are sort of gone by the wayside, as we live so far from family now
My cooking triumphs
Most things from this site, this has been the best thing the internet has had to offer!
My cooking tragedies
A layered Jello dessert...the middle layer never set, so it did the 'ooze-wiggle'...and...well..I liquified a couple of chickens on 2 different occasions, turning them into a black gel. Moral of that story is, don't start cooking then go clean barns!...and there was the time that my kids were helping me make Thanksgiving dinner and SOMEbody (who resembled my youngest son) forgot to put the sugar in the pie!!!
