One of the fondest memories I have of holidays when I was younger was making food for Thanksgiving, and Christmas. These were the only times of year where my mother would agree to covering the entire kitchen in flour for the sake of delicious food!
The favorite dish of our festivities was chicken and dumplings (though some think this particular kind is more like noodles)- with a recipe from a cook book that Noah probably saved on the Ark. (It had instructions for plucking your chicken - Seriously.)
They're very easy to make if you don't mind making a bit of a mess, and so much better than store bought!
Step 1: Mixing the Dough
First off, we're going to need a few things to make our dough. You probably already have all of the ingredients if you do any baking/cooking at all in your home.
2 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/3 Cup Water
1 Teaspoon of Vegetable oil (Or substitute for olive oil if you wish)
Combine all of your ingredients in a large mixing bowl, and stir with a spoon or fork. After moving the mess around for a while it should start to get clumpy looking, and begin taking shape.
