Chicken and DumplingsBy Rita's Kitchen Cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a fork or pastry blender until the texture is like course crumbs. Stir in the milk, mixing with a fork until the dough forms a ball. You may not use the entire 1 cup. Flour a work surface very well. You do not want the dough to stick to the work surface! You’ll need a rolling pin and something to cut the dumplings with. I like to use a pizza cutter. I also like to use a small spatula to lift the dumplings off the cutting surface. Roll the dough out thin with a floured rolling pin. Dip your cutter in flour and cut the dumplings into 2 inch squares (approximately). It’s okay for them not to be exact. Use the floured spatula to put them on a floured plate. Just keep flouring between the layers of dumplings. To cook them, bring the broth to a boil. Drop the dumplings in one at a time, stirring while you add them. The extra flour on them will help thicken the broth. Try not to add them too quickly or they try to stick together! Cook them for about 15-20 minutes or until they are no longer doughy. Add the cooked chicken to the pot, add pepper to taste and salt if it is needed! Sprinkle a little parsley for color if desired. If the consistency is too thick for your taste, add more chicken stock!

Easy Crusty French BreadBy Rita's KitchenThis bread is wonderful and the picky husband swears by it. Great as a side, as an appetizer with olive oil, or just warm from the oven with fresh butter. Original Recipe from Life as a Strawberry.


If you like, you can use a piece of parchment paper to make it easier to lift the loaf in and out of the Dutch oven. You can use almost any size of Dutch oven (or French oven, as Le Creuset calls them) for this bread – anything in the neighborhood of a 5- or 6-quart size will work. You may not need all of the flour for this recipe (or you may need a little more!) The consistency of your dough depends on the temperature and humidity of the room, the weight of ingredients, etc. So if your dough looks like it needs a little more flour maybe doesn’t need the full 2.5 cups, go with your instincts! If your kitchen is chilly, you may need to let the bread rise longer than suggested.
