Dumplings

Rated as 4.69 out of 5 Stars

"My mother was one of the best cooks I ever knew. When she made stews we mostly found dumplings in them. We never ate things from packages or microwaves and you sure could taste what food was. That's the only way I cook today - I don't use any electronic gadgets to cook with except an electric stove."

I found that forming the dough into small balls, keeps the dumplings from falling apart.
