MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 8, 2012

"Made the recipe as written except I doubled it. Will be much more stingy with the ground cloves, though. Their flavor can get overpowering in a hurry."

"This recipe is EXCELLENT! I actually added 3 1/2 more cups of water though and it still turned out fantastic! It smelled great while cooking and while reheating the next day!"

"Really really good. I doubled it to make it for my family. Instead of this dumpling recipe, I used the reciped off of the baking mix box. It turned out great!!!"

"I followed the advice of the other reviewer and just used a bag of frozen stew vegetables, which had everything in them( potatoes, onion, carrots, etc.) Very fast and easy, and came out tasting good. Will make again!"
