i had my sister (my bestfriend) over to spend the weekend, while another other sister’s boyfriend was occupying her. (her room doubles as a guest room)
ever since i made the cozy kitchen’s chicken and dumpling recipe from her book a year of cozy (given to me by a dear friend…and it’s a book i treasure above all my home themed books) i’ve wanted her to taste it and when the opportunity for her to not just taste but make it couldn’t be passed.
cooking this recipe with her will be a memory that i will always treasure…
her asking questions, me explaining.
just stepping back and encouraging her to bravely mix the dumplings alone.
watching her drop the dumplings in the sizzling stock.
witnessing her joy and surprise on seeing the fluffy warm dumplings, after they cooked.
her eyes when she tasted this truly “comforting” winter soup.
it was a lovely night…
