    Tracy Graves's Note:

    This is my mom's very own recipe. These dumplings are best served on a cold winter day, as a true comfort food. You may use a chicken, but a hen makes a richer, better tasting broth. If you opt to use a chicken, add a can of chicken broth and a tbsp margarine to the broth.**If dumplings a ppear "soupy" remove some broth while they are simmering.
