Karina Jones is a real-life ranch wife in the Nebraska Sandhills and one of the most highly sought-after speakers in the cattle industry nationwide!
Thanks for starting your week with me, right here on Ranch Raised.
Boy are you in for a sweet treat this week. All year long, my girls scour the internet looking for 4-H baking ideas, which is just fine with my husband, but because he has a big sweet tooth! I guess a perk of being a girl dad is being their official test taster.
I really value the skills that are learned in the kitchen, so as my girls get older, I have stepped back and watched them let their creativity flow.
My oldest daughter loves baking cookies and candies. My middle daughter is more into muffins, donuts, and quick breads. My youngest daughter is our little pie baker, well she loves using fun, mini cookie cutters to adorn the tops of pies. So, at least we enjoy a variety of well-rounded options. So far, no one is showing much interest in canning, so I guess that is still momma’s job.
They recently entered all of their 4-H baking entries. So, while I am off to the fair watching them show their cattle and goats this week, I thought I we would add a few recipes to the Ranch Raised Recipe Book, compliments of my daughters.
Stay tuned for a new recipe that they used in 4-H every day this week. We will add those recipes to the Your Ag Network app and website, and of course they will be found on the Ranch Raised FB page.
Ready, set, preheat your ovens! I hope you enjoy our 2022 4-H recipes as much as we have!

Karina ranches with her husband, Marty, and 3 daughters near Broken Bow, NE. She grew up in western NE, with roots also in southwest SD. The cattle industry and raising kids is her passion.
Watching the cattle industry go the path that it has gone, she could no longer sit quietly at home checking cows, fixing fence, and doing all the everyday tasks wondering when some else was going to make it all better. As she became more active and outspoken on industry issues, she was asked to join the R-CALF USA staff in September 2020 as the Checkoff Petition Campaign manager. That position transcended into her current role as full time Field Director for R-CALF USA.
You can hear her almost every Friday on Your Ag Network’s Hot Barn Report that is broadcast on 60 radio stations with coverage in 9 states, where she deep dives into cattle industry issues and highlights R-CALF’s work on industry reforms. Listen to Ranch Raised on a Your Ag Network hometown station or www.youragnetwork.com where she talks about her daily life on the ranch.
