Betty Lou Gallardo Anderson, the 4th child, and youngest daughter of Lucille Rodgers is known as “the baby” to her family and was “little bit,” to her school friends. Betty was taught to cook by her mother. She was 1st runner up to Miss Texas in 1967, and World Rattlesnake Racing Champion in 1976 and as of yet her time record has not been broke. Betty is a grandmother to 6 girls and 1 boy. She has made her home in Marshall Texas with her husband Rick for the past 23 years.

Betty says, "if you just do not want to, or, do not have the time to make homemade dumplings, this recipe is for you."
