She Should Be Shot for This

The last Saturday of every other month, a group of friends and I get together and watch old movies (nothing after 1965). Last night we watched Paradise Lost with Ronald Coleman and Jane Wyatt and Here Comes the Groom with Bing Crosby and Jane Wyman.

We were down one, but we sure had plenty to eat. We had sub-sandwiches, chicken wings, hamburger quiche, past e fagioli, queso spinach dip and chips, Mexican Stuffed Shells, chocolate bundt cake, no-bake cookies, and my little cheese cookies.

And I decided to make The Pioneer Woman's Apple Dumplings and I've got to tell you, this recipe is dangerous. Really. I didn't take any pictures because Ree is such an amazing photographer that I'm embarrassed to show mine.

Good Golly! One taste of these sweet treats and you will want to "slap your mama" for never providing anything this wonderful. I think I've found my dessert for Thanksgiving. Or anytime I feel like escaping my problems into a diabetic coma.

Check this one out, you'll love it!

WOW! Sounds like an impressive menu. I'm sure your dumplings were picture-worthy! It's all about practice - so don't be afraid to shoot and post. It's a learning process for all of us :) The more you do it, the more comfortable you will become behind the camera.

I've wanted to try those dumplings too but I've been scared for the same reasons that you've said.......LOL Glad to know they live up to the high expectations that I have for them! Maybe one day I'll break down.
