I can remember my grandmother making her special Chicken and dumplings. Well they were always so good and I couldn't figure out how her's were so light and fluffy and mine were not. So I asked one day and she told me what she put in them. So I figured if it was a secret ingredient I wouldn't write it down where other people would get a hold of it. Well low and behold I couldn't remember how much to put in so I just took a wild guess. Those were the awfulest dumplings I had ever made so I finally did go back to grandma and ask how much and this time I wrote it done.

I don't make dumplings but I make homemade noodles. I have to make them every holiday. Homemade is the best.

Thanks for this story. We have a disagreement on how to make dumplings in our family. I ake the the big round dumplings and my cousin makes the small dumplings. There is always a discussion on who makes them right. LOL Thanks for the story

I have messed up alot of dumplings in my cooking. Sometimes they were dough balls, and sometimes looked like they exploded. I have found the best ones for me are made out of bisquik.

My mother's dumplings were the greatest. I don't think she ver used a recipe to make them. Unfortunately, she passed away when I was 13 and I never found how how she did it. Can't make a dumpliing for anything now.

I make dumplings a few times a year. One year I did something totally wrong and they came out like gummed dumplings. I called them gumplings. From then on out, my daughter wanted me to make gumplings again. How do you repeat a mistake?

The moral to the story is get the recipe while you can. Some goodies need the advice of the older cooks in the family.
