    Wonderful comfort food. My only complaint would be that it was a little on the bland side. I added some thyme and sage to the broth, and it turned out just fantastic. Thanks for the recipe!  -  22 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is one of the best recipes I have ever made. Very easy to prepare even though I have never made dumplings before. My 2 year old loved it as well as my picky brother in law.  -  24 May 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
