Foodie Friday

I missed the first Foodie Friday, but I am happy to be participating in the second one. Thank you Michael for hosting Foodie Fridays at Designs by Gollum.

Before leaving for work this morning I put a chicken stew on to simmer. All that need to be done when I got home was to make the dough for the Southern Style Dumplings and put the beans on to simmer with some bacon and chicken broth. I love simmered beans. Served with mashed potatoes. "Comfort Food" . Unfortunately, chicken and dumplings do not really photograph well, but they sure do taste good.


  1. What I wouldn't give for a bowl of your chicken and dumplings, Ann! Perfect comfort food, especially since Dallas is supposed to be chilly this weekend - down below freezing in the mornings. Best kind of weather for chicken & dumplings. :)

  2. It's 11:24, I've just eaten a sinful slice of key lime pie, and all I want is this soup. It's beautiful, the kind of one pot meal that warms the soul. What divine dumplings, so plump and lush.

  3. How perfect you picked a Southern theme:)

    I bet Moe loves this too..I keep saying it..and I know he knows..but he is very lucky:)

  4. Oh I think this photographed just fine - I'm drooling lol. I love chicken and dumplings, such perfect comfort food. Kathy

  5. Girl, I am passing my plate right on through the computer screen! Yum-O! What are you talking about not photograph well? This looks delicious! :-)

    Happy FF on Saturday...

  6. it looks terrific ann, and you are right, thats a hard one to pull off!

  7. We would adore this at my house.

    Ann, I've never made the Southern style rolled dumplings ~ my grandma and mother always made dropped dumplings, so that's what I've always made.

    You've given me the inspiration to try these. :) Thank you!

  8. Yum...haven't thought about chicken and dumplings in ...forever. I used to cut my dumplings with a pizza cutter, makes all that rolling and cutting sorta fun. Your pictures are divine...and its snowing at my house right now so I'll have a big bowl please.

  9. When I am cold I always think of chicken and dumplings to warm me from head to toe.

  10. My son loves chicken and dumplings more than anyone I know. Poor thing, he nevers gets them from me. What he wouldn't give to have a mom that would cook for him the way you do.

    I check out your blog almost daily to see what you have prepared. Truly amazing, I wish I were a tiny bit as talented in the kitchen as you.

  11. Chicken and dumplings with hot cornbread (and a stick of butter :)) is my absolute favorite comfort food. They may not photograph well, but I bet the taste makes up for it. My first visit to your blog--thanks!
