    Susana, this is great...and a very nice Mother's Day remembrance for your grandmother. I've always loved our southern 'slick' dumplings, but have never gotten them to turn out like my grandma's did. Gave it a 5 rating for the wonderful memories! I will definitely give this recipe a try and let you know how it came out. Thanks a bunch!
