Two weeks ago, a reader was looking for a fluffly dumpling recipe. Here's another suggestion for our reader:
"For the person who was trying to replicate her grandmother's dumplings, you might suggest to her that she pick up a package of matzoh meal (readily available this time of year) in the grocery store. On the back of the box is a recipe for those fluffy matzoh balls (dumplings). Good luck" ... Robbin, Dayton, OH
