the first dessert I baked for my then-fiance was red velvet cake, and he was hooked...I love to cook, and my 3 daughters are following in my footsteps. This is a collection of recipes that we love. Feel free to comment - good, bad, indifferent - if you try any, let me know how they turn out.

Chicken and Drop Dumpling Stew

This is from Eat at Home, one of my favorite recipe blogs - I added my changes in bold:

  • 3 boxes chicken broth (or 6 cans) I used stock from a rotisserie chicken carcass
  • 5-6 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning & a generous pinch of parsley, sage, rosemary & thyme
  • 3-4 cups cooked chicken, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
Bring the broth to a boil in a large pot.  Add the vegetables and seasonings and bring back to a boil.

Mix up the dumplings.  Stir the flour, salt, and baking powder together.  Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or fork.  Stir in the milk to form a stiff dough.   Drop by spoonfuls in the boiling chicken broth.  Stir in the chicken and reduce the heat.  Cover and cook for 20 minutes.
