Elk City, Ok -- Every year I think I say the same thing but it bears repeating! My Momma is such an excellent cook and I am amazed how she can keep up and find new things to cook. I like cooking, but the hardest part for me it to think of something TO cook. Mom has had years of practice and it definitely shows. Thank you, Momma, for doing what you do best. You keep us all in line and take care of us like no other. You are very much loved not only for your cooking, but because

Sharon Springs, Kan. — Friday, the kids and I hit the ground running with our harvest duties and delivered Tex-Mex Sloppy Joes on tortillas for the evening meal. I found the recipe by Chef Alli in the Kansas Living magazine that Farm Bureau publishes. I had tried it out on Mark and the guys when they were in the area and they seemed to approved. The recipe went a little farther than I was expecting and was more than I'd get through at home, so I sent some over to our neighbors. They liked it, and she requested the recipe. With so

Garden City, Kan. – Taylor notified me earlier last week that she, Colten (her husband-to-be) and Callie were coming out to see us over the weekend. I sort of held my breath for the first couple of days thinking something might happen and they wouldn't be able to make it. But, made it they did! They arrived at 2:30 a.m. on Saturday. They left home at 6:30—after Taylor got home from work. And, me being the excited mom, I sat up and waited for them. I knew if I went to bed, I wouldn't be able to sleep because I'd be

Claude, TX - Remember my issue with not enough ingredients for the chocolate chip cookies? The recipe was one that I used from the HarvestHER Facebook Recipe Album (Randi Beckley of Beckley Harvesting). They turned out perfect! I baked a small batch to make sure all was good (mostly just to satisfy that chocolate craving I was having) and then I froze the rest. I made them into little "pucks" and froze them individually on a cookie sheet. After they were frozen, I put them in a large baggie for ease of using at a later date. I'm learning a

I think I have shared this recipe every year since my first year at All Aboard Wheat Harvest! It is just so darn good, I HAVE TO SHARE IT! Sorry, I'm not yelling, just excited! I have no idea when this recipe came to be in the Misener family, but it has been around since all of my siblings and parents have been around. I remember my Grandma Alda making it for us kids when we were at her house, and Momma making it for a special treat. The most important thing about this recipe is that it is eaten

Shattuck, Oklahoma—It has been a slow start but we’re in the field! The weather’s dried up and we’ve been in full-blown harvest mode, and it’s crazy how time can get away from you. Over the week Mom and Dad have been able to get roughly 600 acres cut with the help of Adams Harvesting crew stepping in with a second machine and truck. Wheat’s being cut and other than that there’s not a whole lot to report on. The wheat is very short, a result of the drought. Test weight is 50 at best and it’s yielding just terrible.
