  • After trials, chicken and dumplings recipe is ready

    A friend asked if I knew of a really good recipe for the old-fashioned type of chicken and dumplings, the kind Cracker Barrel  makes. 

    I’ve been searching for something like that too because I’ve tried many recipes and I haven’t been very satisfied. After some time, through the help of my friend, Mary, and combining recipes, I think I’ve got it.  Try them and see what you think. They are easy to make and much better than the Bisquick kind.  I give you:

    Slick Chicken and Dumplings

  • Stuffing recipe is one to share for the holidays

    I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, I certainly did.  Most of my family lives in the Indianapolis area, so we usually go there. We have so much fun together.

    I always remember the family meals we had when we were very young, and what I continually reflect on is all the laughter. I am proud to say, especially since I am now the ‘older’ generation, that we have certainly carried on the tradition.
