We moved to the ranch we currently live and work on, almost 4 years ago. After making several trips from CA with our truck and horse trailer full of goodies, we crammed it all into the tiny 100 yr old "cook house" which will be our humble abode and Home Sweet Home for years to come.Aside from… MORE

In an effort to refrain from anymore continuing...which is becoming a nasty habit, I would like to post this as a warning...this entry might be rather long.Okay...so we had to plan a wedding. We agreed this was best executed at our family ranch, which is where we were moving anyway, as no one… MORE

After Randyman's metamorphosis and our trip to the family Christmas party in palm springs, he became a regular visitor. There were times he was lauded as a hero, such as the incident when he rescued my Down pillow, "Fluffy", whom I found suspended from the ceiling fan where the boys had fitted… MORE

Due to the severity of a freak snowstorm, HandyRandyman spent a week on our couch, and there were no fatalities. As vehicles and other mechanical units continued their struggle for operational survival, he took meals with us and watched the two TV stations we actually got. It was during this… MORE

After he repaired my tractor, I learned that Randyman aka 'The Axe Murderer' had been summoned via the local feedstore...again! Their excuse for this was:"It wasn't at your house, it wasn't a delivery, and he fixes heavy equipment."So, I offered them my next problem...how was I supposed to pay… MORE

People often ask how the HandyRandyman and I met, and I tell them the truth...he was a stalker.Back in the day, when I was still training horses professionally, and going thru an ugly divorce (after 18 yr of marriage and 2 kids) I ordered a couple tons of hay from the local feed store and that… MORE

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!!!
