    You are right, true comfort food. Chicken & dumplings is MY comfort food. I still can't make them quite as good as my grandmother did. And don't even get me started on her sour dough biscuits. I can't even come close!

    My Granny's dumplings were like this. I remember my sister getting her 5th helping and looking innocent: "This is just my 2nd helping!"
