Step Back In Time

by Eileen
(New Mexico)

My Aunt and I have made it our tradition to go to Amish Country every six months. I fly into Cleveland from Albuquerque. We leave early in the morning and take back roads to begin our adventure. Our first stop is breakfast. We have tried many restaurants. Our favorite is Mrs. Yoder's Kitchen in Mt. Hope. They have THE BEST FOOD and we really love their grape pie!! We love the winding back roads to get there. It is such a beautiful area. We have the utmost respect for the Amish way of life. It is so peaceful and beautiful (especially for this desert girl). We also love Berlin Bulk Food Store. I can harly wait for my next visit in two weeks!! Eileen and Aunt Squidge

Sounds like paradise!

I have experienced Mrs. Yoder's in Mt. Hope and have had their grape pie! You are right. It was fabulous! The best time to visit is when they have a scheduled auction and flea market across the way. All the local farmers descend upon the area and they have some great sale items.

I also have stepped into Berlin Bulk Foods before. Each time I am there, I cannot avoid that store because of the friendly owners and of course their cinammon balls! They are so delicious - and very addicting! Their spice selection is great!

It is a wonderful area to visit and to spend some time checking out the local stores and services that are offered! And you are right about it seeming like a step back in time!

I also love your Auntie's name! "Squidge" - that is too cool!
