Chicken and dumplings...



When I was a little girl, my favorite dinner was my mother's chicken and dumplings. I tried preparing it once when my children were young, but the dumplings had the texture of glue. When I was leafing through my cookbooks this week, I noticed a recipe for chicken and dumplings and decided to try again. It was delicious! The perfect dinner on a day when the the sky is spitting snow, hail and rain, and the temperatures are in the 20s.

I use this cookbook a lot. It's from the people who publish Cooks Illustrated magazine and the recipes are dependably good.

I've never made chicken and dumplings, but it sure looks good. It got cold here again after having been really warm. Spring must be on its merry way.

Your Chicken and Dumplings look delicious! What great comfort food.

I've had very good luck with Cook's Illustrated recipes over the years but have not tried that cookbook before. I'll have to look for it.
