Yesterday I was in the mood for something sweet and since Cinnamon Rolls take too long I decided to make Carmel Dumplings. Really these should be eaten as a dessert, at least that is what my Dad use to say when we ate them for breakfast as children. Usually I make the less sweet version that is not carmel but peach instead. Dumplings are one of the few breakfast foods that everyone in my house loves. This recipe is one that my family has been making for a very long time.

Peach Dumplings:
1 lg. can peaches with juices from the can, sliced (I just slice them myself)
2 T. butter
Pour in a frying pan that has a lid and bring to a simmer while you mix the batter

Carmel Dumplings:
2 T. butter
1-1/2 c. brown sugar
1-1/2 c. water
Mix all together and bring to a boil stirring occasionally, so as not to burn the bottom.

Dumpling Batter:
2 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar
1 T. baking powder
3/4 t. salt
1-1/2 t. vanilla
3/4 c. milk

Mix dry ingredients and then add the milk. Drop spoonfuls onto boiling fruit, or carmel. Cover and turn down temperature to medium low. Cook for 20 minutes, do not remove lid until the 20 minutes is over!

I enjoy milk, or when I am really wanting calories cream, poured on top. Serve warm.

Those look delicious!
As for the alergy, my kids projectile vomit when I eat something that they are allergic to. They also squirm, and sometimes cry depending on their personality. When they start to do that, I think back what I ate 3-4 hours earlier then try to figure what it might be. I have heard that allergies don't start until about a week after they are born.. The first thing I take out of my diet is chocolate and dairy besides milk. Then if I have to I stop drinking milk. I always have to :)
no big deal though, I like to cut out all the extra calories :) Thanks for asking hope this helps.
When do you head to China?
