Editor’s Note: Gloria’s family has been battling winter illnesses. Lots of sniffles and sneezes in the Yoder household, so we wish them all a speedy recovery.
I told her to take a week to rest, and I’m glad she took me up on it! She will return next week.
In the meantime, I’ve pulled a couple of my favorite recipes of Gloria’s to share, I know that not every reader catches every recipe, so this is a good opportunity to showcase a couple you might have missed!
