    Mama would skin me alive if I used canned biscuits in dumplings. Seriously. She hit me with a folded up magazine last week because I made Yankee Cornbread.

    So. What is the difference in Chicken n Dumplings and Chicken n Biscuits?

      Chicken n Dumplings, you put the dough directly into the broth. So you’re not baking it, you’re boiling it, so the mixture starts out a little more soupy, not quite as thick because then the dumplings soak up some of that and have a different texture than biscuits. Chicken n Biscuits, you bake the biscuits on top of the mixture and have…biscuits.

      And Annmarie, your mama clearly has way more time in her day than I do if she has time to worry about whether the biscuits are from a can or from scratch ๐Ÿ˜›

    Chicken n Biscuits sounds like our version of chicken pot pie. Total yum!

    Mama has a lot of anger toward canned biscuits. I can’t explain it.

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
