Welcome to our ‘Home…and The Range’!

I am a country at heart gal living with my country at heart hubby (Poppy) in our new home in the South. We are…South by Southwest!

I am looking forward to expanding my homestyle recipe file with flavors of the region,  some Kentucky favorites and blending the flavors of the South and the Southwest.

This is a journal of our  life experiences and some of my homey passions. I love baking, cooking, home crafts, crochet, photgraphing moments with family, nature…and more.

Please join me…for some inspiration that I find in this network of sharing, some of our life adventures of ‘Home’ (family) and ‘The Range’ (homestyle cooking) and maybe some humor through it all!

Friends and Family gather here…

I  hope you’ll visit for a while and come back again soon!

Happy  Trails to you…

  1. Thank you for the lovely birthday wishes on my blog Victoria! I love the collection of recipes and fun craft projects on your blog. I’ve actually been wanting to try out pepper jelly for a while and I’m bookmarking your recipe to give it a whirl!

      You’re welcome Heather! I hope your birthday was a wonderful celebration! And…thank you for your kind compliment of my humble little blog! Everyone that has tried the pepper jelly (and most recently the red pepper jelly) LOVES it! It is quite easy and very delicious! If you do make it…stop back by and let me know how you and your family like it! ~Blessings!

      Thank you for your comment…and for the welcome! I am still navigating my way through life in the South and enjoying some new regional recipes…and the scenery! It is beautiful here and I enjoy the rain…just not the thunderstorms and tornadoes! I look forward to navigating through your blog also. ~ Blessings to you!

  5. I just found your blog and I’ve got to say right-off that i love it!!! ~ Beautiful pictures & i look forward to trying some of your recipes! 🙂

      Hi Cookin’ Cowgirl! So glad you found me here. Thank you for the kind comments. I hope you do stop in and try some of the recipes. I love sharing them. I will also look forward to stopping in at your country kitchen as well. 🙂

  6. Love it! Having never experienced the snow, your description made me feel like I was there. Thanks so much for stopping by Island Vignettes!

    • Victoria says:

      Thank you for your comment…which I believe would be in response to the Snow and Yoberry post. I think living on an Island would be pretty spectacular and you must feel very blessed to be there….even without snow. 🙂

  7. Nice to find another ‘cross-genre’ blog, food matters, but there’s always other stuff to weave round it. Look forward to your posts. Thanks for liking one of mine,Tracey

    • Victoria says:

      Yes indeed! Food, home, life and homelife matters…matter! 🙂 Thank you…and you’re welcome! I will look forward to your posts as well! Be blessed! 🙂

    What a positively clever Blog name…says it perfectly I should think.

  11. I have nominated you for the Sunshine Award! Congratulations! It will be posted on my blog tomorrow, for you to find the details 🙂 PlantBasedDietAdventures.com

    I love your blog name (very clever!). Like you, I also am a country-at-heart gal, however, because of jobs, I’ve always lived in the city. So, I go to the country whenever as as often as I can! Visiting your blog feels a little like a visit to the country. 🙂 Thanks for visiting my blog and so, leading me to yours.

    • Victoria says:

      Thank you! I am glad that you found a little road trip to the Country through my blog :). When I thought I was a City Girl…and had to live there…my heart wasn’t in it. I’ll stop by…when I’m in the City! 🙂 Have a blessed day!

  13. Vicki says:

    your visit to my blog has led me to yours.. thankfully 🙂

  14. Hi 🙂 Thank you for stopping by my blog and for taking the time to comment! You have a great blog!

    • Victoria says:

      Thank you! I do want to try out your pasta recipe…looks great! I love cooking…and homemade pasta. My Father tells me about his Mother making her homemade noodles. The process then seemed to be a lot more tedious! I will definitely be getting me an attachment for my KitchenAid! Thanks for stopping in!

  15. I found you via Diary of a Mad Crafter. Great blog! Where in Utah is Horseshoe Mountain? I live in Park City. Have a great day- check me out at theusualbliss.com sometime!

    • Victoria says:

      Excellent! Thank you for the compliment! Horseshoe Moutain is in Central Utah…Sanpete County (pictured in my 6/7/2012 ppost). Ahhh…Park City. I lived and worked there for a while…also a beautiful place. Thanks for stopping by and I do enjoy your blog also.
