I just wanted to share this recipes with you all. Not sure if anyone has since the new weight loss show called Extreme Makeover" Weight Loss Edition". I was so glad that you can still have comfort food without losing the taste. I always eat Chicken and Dumpling, but i use refrigerated biscuits.. But this will be a great change...
