Okay...this recipe has my name on it, so I had to review it right? But it doesn't need my endorsement! I'll admit, I've never had dumplings with onions, carrots, or potatoes in them. And I've always had them with the dough rolled into strips and cut. But this was great!We both loved it! It had great flavor, and was just right in consistancy, of dumplings, veggies, and "broth/gravy". Great for a filling dinner when you don't want to work too hard. Thanks for the "heads up" on this dumpling recipe Barbara, I'll definately be making it again.
