Rating: 4.58 stars
This is a recipe that was given to me by my grandmother. It is a very savory and tasty soup and I believe that all will like it. If you would like to add even more flavor, try using smoked chicken!!

Lentil Soup III

Rating: 4.38 stars
As a busy college student, I don't have much time to eat, let alone cook. I've been making this soup for myself my whole college career, since it's a soup my mom made when I was growing up. This soup is illegally easy and incredibly good for you. Eat it up! You can add sliced, shredded, or diced cooked chicken to the soup when it is almost ready. This soup is delicious, but it can be a surprisingly dull color. You can make it more attractive by serving it with a thin slice of lemon on top and a sprinkle of chopped parsley or chives.

Hungarian Goulash I
Rating: Unrated
A spicy way to dress up stew beef. My mom made this when we were kids, and we loved it. It is spicy while not mouth-burning! Can be made with cheaper cuts of beef, and comes out very tender. If it gets too thick, add a little water while it's cooking. Garnish with sour cream.
