I brought this over from my forpeteysake.blogspot.com blog. I thought you guys might like it. Black & White Ranch life is colorful, no doubt. There are so many elements to it that city people never have the privilege to experience, but in spite of its color, the time… MORE

Years ago, while living on the family ranch, there was a very large, very old turkey. We had about 30 laying hens, but this big turkey ran loose all over the ranch. On more than one occasion he would not allow people out of their vehicles. On a daily basis MORE

My apologies to those who read this before on my blogsite, but due to Randyman's attempt to remove his finger* yesterday, and his trip with the boss today (I did inspection and packed a ton of bandaging material along with his candybars) , I am up at 4 a.m. and remembering why I hate MORE

Its fall and that is the time that all the cattle on the ranch go thru processing, then weaning begins. I missed the processing, but had a good day on the 2nd day of the weaning process, so me and Wimpy rode out with #5 kid and started gathering cattle out of the very large field where they MORE

Workin' Hard Being on a ranch means hard work. There is no room for slackers. It is clearly a stressful and challenging life. Even for the animals. MORE

Here it is, October, and my tomatoes are FINALLY starting to ripen. I found a few deep inside the dark and spooky recesses of my overgrown tomato plants. All that were red, and any with a blush and promise of turning red were brought to the house. I went from bush to bush, having planted 10… MORE

Summer was cool up here this year. Too cool for tomatoes and peppers to do much good, so my plans for canning all of our tomato products this summer were…well…canned. An abundance of corn and sixty-eleven tons of squash took the edge off of the disappointment however. I got some corn MORE

Living on a remote ranch has endless perks. We can raise most of our own food, and almost everything is made from scratch. When you live 5 hours from shopping, you tend to buy all your food with “some assembly required”. It may sound too difficult to some, but in truth, I have found it to be MORE

AR relevancy-livestock guardian dog-sheep-lamb-dinner The Maremma pups are almost 7 months old now. They have been doing a pretty good job of protecting the sheep, goats and the orphan calf that have been placed in their care. I have not seen a single coyote or bobcat in our pasture this… MORE

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… 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!!!
