Both of my parents and I were born and raised in Pasadena Ca,but we do have Southern roots. Both sets of grandparents were born in the South. Both Grandmothers and a Grandfather were awesome cooks, I don't ever remember my maternal Grandfather cooking,they were married 62 years ,so I guess he never had to cook! He did make onion sandwiches.(never tried them),I remember my Grandmother making chicken and dumplings in the summer when my sisters and brother would spend time with them. I don't remember how she made them but this is my version,guessing from memories.
