Cookin' Chain Reaction

Turns out, Thanksgiving was just a warm-up for some of the cookin' I've been doing lately. Nostalgic stuff like Sandies (Mexican wedding cookies) and last night, I made a big pot of 'Chicken 'n Dumplins'. Just the aroma of it, smells like home. It's a dish I typically make on a Sunday but TUUUUesday seemed like a good day, too. Making the Sandies is a real trick now because I've used up the confectioner's sugar I brought from the States. I really don't know where to find it here....
Painting the bottles for the egg nog batches I've been making has resulted in plates of sweet treats (brownies, sandies and cookies) to accompany it.
I'm posting a couple of fool-proof recipes that I hope you will enjoy. Just click onto photo to enlarge. If you want to know how to make Chicken 'n Dumplins, just let me know. It's cheap, it's fast, and it's soooo GOOD! Bien Provecho!

Yummm..Chicken and Dumplings...will you share the recipe? My mother always made that, and I've never figured out how to do it.

I've not had any trouble finding confectioners sugar. Powdered suger, right? I've even found it in smaller pulperias. Check all around the regular sugar or where they have little packets of spices. Buena Suerte! If all else fails a trip to AutoMercado will probably get you S&H pure cane sugar, from Hawaii no less. Hehehehe ...ok, remembering good ole N.American advertising...Who ever thought I'd miss it?

Mas x Menos doesn't have it but I'll check AutoMercado. Some of the simpliest things are the hardest to find. I remember one year searching everywhere for light corn syrup for my peanut brittle. Now, it's everywhere.

My mom taught me to make chickin' n' dumplin's for my dad (they were divorced). I've never written down how to do it but I'll give it a shot!

confectioners sugar, I think is called Azucar Glass in Mexico, maybe over there is called the same?

Here, I found out it's Azucar Molida and it's everywhere if you know where to look. Thanks. Teri
