PHOTO CAPTIONS: Wow, oh wow, feast your eyes on Lovina’s fresh-from-the oven cinnamon rolls. And bottom photo is a really sentimental one, it is the actual handwritten recipe card for cinnamon rolls written in the hand of Lovina’s Mom. THE AMISH COOK BY LOVINA EICHER This past week has been a very busy week with […] Read more
