  1. This is Chip's wife. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE? I've hit the mother load. Thank you Thank you for your wonderful--incredible--recipes! When I saw the pic of your chix and dumplings that looked EXACTLY like my mother (and grandmother) made them, I knew I'd find everything I would ever need right here for the best recipes imaginable. I can't wait to make these for my sister and brother. They won't believe it! Thank you a million times Mandy! Initially I was looking for mac&cheese using eggs---BINGO! Not everyone uses eggs. I'm making your recipe tonight! Again, thanks. Can't wait to start cookin! Chip's wife Cher

  2. oh how I wish I lived closer to you, oh heck, I wish I was in your family!!!!! I'd love to cook with you!!!

  3. When my kids were little, my favorite things to cook/bake with them were cookies and pancakes! I think if the kids know they will like the end product, they will be more interested in the process. Of course, who doesn’t like cookies and pancakes? 🙂Jayme Silvestri


Hi there! While I’m not able to respond to every comment, I try hard to answer any questions that haven’t been addressed in the post, recipe or in other comments.

I can tell you now 1) I have no idea if you can substitute Minute Rice or brown rice in my recipes because I’ve never used them and 2) If I know how to convert a recipe to a Crock Pot version, I will make a note about it (otherwise, I don’t know).

And though I may not respond to them all, I do read each and every comment and I LOVE to hear from you guys! Thanks, y’all! - Mandy
