At the request of a few rabble-rousers, I am bringing the blog back to AR. It can still be found on my website, but for a few 'website change challenged' dear friends, I will be doing my best to duplicate them here on AR.

Seeing as how this is a cooking website and all, I would like to say up front that I live on a beef ranch, and I also have milkcows, so I figure that qualifies whatever I happen to write about, if you follow the trail...story....petey....beef....kitchen....plate.<

During my absence however, I added a few new skills to the old repertoire, such as making mozzarella, ricotta, sour cream, a few other things, and well, of course, butter and yogurt...and lets not forget soap. Real soap is an experience. Just like in that old Sandra Bullock movie...what was it called...Soap Floats?

Hey, Petey. I've been visiting the other site for some time, and even added you to my recipe box as an offsite site, so to speak. I am a fan of your way with words and how you do tell a tale. <>< So nice of you to make your blog accessible to your AR-buds. Good to see you back.

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. forpeteysake.blogspot.com http://throughthedarkestvalleys.blogspot.com/
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!!!
