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. I am 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. Enjoy the recipes below for Deluxe Scrambled Eggs and homemade taco pizza.
