Recipes of the week: Goulash
Marcia from Clinton, Mich., wrote in a couple of weeks ago looking for a new twist on goulash — a favorite winter dish of hers.
Jean from Adrian, Mich., says her baked goulash is a whole dinner in a pan. Marilyn from Lambertville, Mich., sent in her hearty and delicious recipe for easy goulash.
Sue from Allen, Mich., says the first thing she learned to cook as a new wife was goulash. She made it so often, her husband went out and bought her a cookbook!
