Editor’s Note: Gloria is taking a deserved late-summer break. Her column will return next week with a special family guest writer and then Gloria will return. She thanks readers for their well-wishes and encouragement.
Meanwhile, enjoy this recipe from the Amish Cook archives, perfect and refreshing for a hot late-summer day!
