10. A vintage recipe request from a reader:

"My grandmother used to make the most delicious dumplings on top of a chicken stew! They were light and fluffy! The only recipes I seem to find are more like biscuits, cut into little squares. These were round and floated on top of the stew. Anyone have an old-time recipe?" Lindsey from Minnesota

If you can help this reader with this recipe, please forward it to phil@bignews.biz .

As with collectibles, people also have very strong feelings about foods from their past. Sometimes these special recipes get lost. This section is to help people who are looking for lost recipes from their past. If you submit a request, please include the geographical region where you tasted the recipe.

If you have a vintage recipe request send it to phil@bignews.biz and we might just publish it here.
