Amish Cook: Try these recipes to get a jump-start on the holidays
Hard to believe there’s only a month left before 2012 is history. I thought I’d share a few favorite recipes from our family that you might enjoy during the upcoming Christmas season.

One of my daughters and myself will go help make subs for a “sub drive” on Friday. The proceeds from the subs sold go to help a family in our church with medical bills. It is nice to help one another with each other’s burdens.
