Chicken Biscuit Pie
Had some leftover chicken so thought give it a go. I used the same ingredients, but in different order, I cooked the onions, with part of the butter, added the veg shortly after and cooked it . Once cooked added rest of butter, put flour in and made a roux. Then added broth, and milk and meat. Added bit of parsley and pepper for bit of taste as well. Put it in casserole dish, I made top as per he recipe, but didn't do biscuits, I mixed it up, rolled it out and put a full top on it.......was really good. OH TURN DOWN THE HEAT. That has to be a typo, at that temp half will burn and other half raw. I cooked it at 375 for about 20-25 minutes and it was gorgeous.

Peach Whirligigs
I tried this tonight, and loved it. I used 7 peaches as mine were quite small. I had some peaches in the fridge that were horrible to eat, so thought try cooking them, they were worse peaches I have ever worked with, they were dry and hard and plain awful. But this recipe turned out great and peaches tasted fine. I used all brown sugar that was only change I made, will certainly use this again and will try with apples as well.

Chicken and Dumplings II
I used this recipe as a base recipe. I dont think personally that tomatoes and green peppers belong in a chicken and dumplings meal, so did not add them. I added a few more herbs as personal choice and it was really good, I find it easier however to cook the chicken first without any other ingrediant, then shred it, and put in the veg/herbs/ and anything else you want back into the liquid. I like a thicker base so did use flour to thicken it up a bit. I also used my own dumplings mix. For those having a problem with the dumpling going gooey or liquidy, make sure the fluid is piping hot! Cover the dumplings and try cooking for 15 mins, do not remove the lid or they will go flat!
