My sister, Wanda Sue, gave this to me right after mother passed away in 1968. She probably got this from one of mother's cookboods or one that mother had written down on something. Wanda was 13 years older than me so she got to spend more time with mother than I ever did, especially in the kitchen. I haven't tried these but plan on it soon. It sounds like something my mother would of cooked often. I do remember the chicken and dumplings she made so often on Sundays after church.
