Butternut Squash Soup with Spinach Ravioli

Asparagus, Lemon, and Mint Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars 26
This soup is easy to make. Asparagus has a strong flavor by itself, so I chose to add a few mint leaves and lemon zest to give it a wonderfully fresh aroma!

Wisconsin Blue Ribbon Chili

Rating: 4.5 stars 20
This chili earned its blue ribbon at a chili cook-off three years in a row! It is a mild, sweet chili, but it could always be spiced up with a little hot sauce. In Wisconsin, chili has macaroni noodles in it, which my husband thinks is the best part of this recipe. Enjoy! Add canned kidney beans with the macaroni, if desired.

Greek Stew

Rating: 4.5 stars 9
I'm not sure how 'Greek' this is. However, my father made this, his parents came from Cephalonia, and he called it 'Greek stew.' As with many such recipes, the leftovers are even better a day or two later.
