Pork and Dumplings
The recipe as is would be pretty bland, with a few additional spices it's pretty good. I added half of a chopped onion to the broth and some garlic powder, also added some veggies before I put the dumplings in ( I only had peas and carrots, but anything on hand could be added). Might try making it with chicken stock next time too, or bone in chops for additional flavour. As for the dumplings, reason for only giving it three stars, only three tablespoons of shortening for 3 cups of flour does not make the flour crumbly. Maybe it's just me, but I ended up having to make two batches of dumplings because the first batch ( the one where I followed directions to a "T") came out dry crumbly and wouldn't even stick together to make a ball of dough. So I made them again adding probably 7 Tbsns of shortening and a full cup of water and they came out ok. I also live in a very dry climate right now, so maybe that had something to do with it. Will keep tweaking, but a decent base recipe for some good old fashioned comfort food.

Dessert for Breakfast - Red Velvet Pancakes
We all thought this was pretty tasty, made it this morning for a valentines day breakfast treat! The cream cheese frosting sauce is really good. I will say that mixing the batter well then letting it sit for 10-15 would be ideal, I made a mistake and didn't mix well enough and had to mix it again. Which of course made them a little flatter than they would have been originally. Overall, these had a great flavour! Thanks for a great recipe! Oh, and it makes quite a few pancakes, normally we double pancake need for this one!
