      Very good tasting soup!! It was my first time making dumplings in a soup and they turned out great!! I didn't chill the soup for 8 hours as I had already started making it for dinner when I realized I was supposed to but, it all worked out in the end!! Very good recipe, thanks for posting.

      This was very good. I added a little more carrots than called for and also added about 1 cup of frozen peas to give it some more vegetables. Had to add a little more flour and corn starch because the flour mixture that you add doesnt make it quite thick enough.

      This is very tasty and you feel good about the health factor while having it for dinner. I would recommend that salt be added to the dumplings as once they are cooked it doesn't penetrate and while they had a nice texture they remained bland without any salt. Thank you Dref for a down home dinner that I haven't had in years. I quite enjoyed it.
