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

I grew up on a farm in Southeast Kansas with lots of animals and space to run free. After college, I remember flying kites in a city park 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. And that, my friends, is how Country at Heart Recipes came to life.

Besides cooking and baking, my hobbies include reading, herb gardening and antique shopping. I enjoy spending time with my family and grandchildren and traveling with our daughters, THE VOGTS SISTERS, on weekend performances. My passions include collecting Polish Pottery, vintage hen-on-nests, ceramic roosters, and tea pots. I also love Dove dark chocolate!
