DD wants to make chicken and dumplings
« on: May 27, 2018, 04:53:04 pm »
She is very much a novice in the kitchen. She wants to start getting to know how to make dinner. But my chicken and dumplings has a lot of ingredients in it (whole chicken, onion, garlic, celery, mushrooms, carrots, potato, milk, chicken stock, eggs, butter, flour, baking powder, thyme, peppercorns, whole cloves, bay leaf, parsley, paprika, S&P).

I know she doesn't care how home made it is. I was thinking of teaching her to make my mom's chicken and dumplings, which is a very simple version (just cooked chicken, a can of white gravy, a can of chicken gravy, some biscuit dough,  a box of frozen mixed vegetables, some chicken broth, chopped onion, and poultry seasoning).

She seems less intimidated by my mom's cooking. And honestly both do the trick for satisfying that urge for comfort food. What do you think?

I will say that I love to cook and love making stuff from scratch so your recipe sounds amazing to me.  And I would never make your mom's recipe.  I think for a young person interested in learning it is perfectly fine to have her make your mom's recipe.  Let us know how it turns out!

P.S  Would you be willing to share your recipe? I have never made it before, but have always wanted to try it.

Wow. ML is different than MC. Last week, I'd have been raked over the coals for even considering teaching her to cook with a bunch of canned stuff when I knew how to cook from scratch. But she really wants to just be able to make more than oatmeal, grits, and ramen.

Let her do the easy stuff first. That way she can get comfortable in the kitchen.

I have a feeling it is due to the 'anon' feature not being as easy to use as on CM

I would much rather take the opportunity to teach her how to actually cook than to put canned stuff together.

When mine cook with me, they cook what I would normally cook. It takes a little longer but its worth it in the long run.

I'm going to differ from everyone else. I'm a former Chef so I suggest teaching from scratch. It will mean much more to her in the long run and it will familiarize her with more ingredients, how to prep them, and even culinary terms. My oldest just learned how to make pate a choux over the weekend and my youngest learned how to make Brazilian black bean stew. By cutting corners, she is not really going to learn anything..she will learn how to open a can and throw it in a pot...By using a scratch recipe, she will so much more.

Oh, my gosh. She was funny to watch, though. She murdered that poor onion. Lol. It also ended up taking her hours, so I do think maybe she learned a thing or two about using her time in the kitchen.

Awwww...yeah that is why I said to use that recipe first.  In time she will learn about time management, taste, ingredients etc.

My daughter would later ask why my recipe tastes different than the first one and then I'd use that opportunity to explain the difference using fresh vs canned stuff.

And you never got back to me about possibly sharing your recipe? It is totally ok if you don't want to.  I don't share a lot of mine!
