Hi there! My name is Deborah Vogts, and I grew up in the country surrounded by dedicated cooks who knew how to feed their hungry families. I've passed on that knowledge to my three daughters and would now like to share some of my recipes with you!

I grew up on a farm in SE Kansas with pigs, cattle, horses and sheep, as well as space to run free. After college, I remember being in a city park flying kites and having the worst ache in my heart for
wide-open spaces. That longing took me back home where I married a high school classmate. My husband (of near 30 years) and I have three "grown and married" daughters and live on land my grandpa once farmed . . . along with our horses, cats, and Luther, our black Labrador.

To put it simply, I love living in the country -- fresh air, quiet atmosphere, breathtaking sunsets. Besides cooking and baking, my hobbies include reading, herb gardening and antique shopping. I enjoy spending time with my family and grandchildren, taking walks with Luther, and managing and traveling with our daughters, THE VOGTS SISTERS, on weekend performances. I adore Polish Pottery and have a passion for collecting vintage glass hen-on-nests, ceramic roosters, and tea pots. I also love Dove dark chocolate!
