  1. When I was 12 years old my mother was in the hospital for a week. My grandmother came over and made this the first night and I was hooked. I couldn't remember the name and I have been googling the recipe and I finally found it! This is exactly it and this is the exact name "Gourmet Goulash"!!! My grandmother's recipe was hand written and the only thing not on the list was the Worcestershire sauce. I wonder what the origin of this recipe is?
  2. This is one of our "tried and true" meals that we turn to. It is so easy to stir together for an evening meal yet the flavors taste as if you've cooked it all day long. We use low-sodium V8 and saute fresh mushrooms with the onions if we have them on hand. This one has been shared with our young adults in their 3-ring family recipe binders. Thanks Bobbie!


This is a picture of me with my oldest grandson, DJ and was taken this past summer when we went on a cruise and land tour of Alaska. I am retired after working for the same company for 25 years. My husband is a retired military officer. After the military he started working for Lockheed and is now retired from there as well. We live in San Jose, CA and have lived in the same house for over 33 years. We have two grown children and 6 beautiful grandchildren. I love to try new recipes and jazz up old ones. Taste of Home and Southern Living are my favorite recipe magazines(I enjoy reading a little bit about the people who submit the recipes). Recipe Zaar is just an incredible site. I've made many new friends since joining. I have tons of cookbooks -- but now when I need a new recipe that I know I can count on, I come here! <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj240/marienixon_715/kittencaljpg.jpg"> <img src="http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y227/vjuhl/MEPcookathon.jpg">
