Feeding a crowd and on the go this holiday season? Here’s a tried and true recipe that my Mom made for years. A real hearty, stick to your ribs one-pan meal with a smoky flavor. It’s perfect for your next potluck, or busy weeknight meal. Be sure to use a deep skillet with a tight-fitting lid for best results.

AMERICAN GOULASH INGREDIENTS (6-8 SERVINGS) 2 lbs 1 large 4 cloves 3 cups 1 tbsp 2 cans (15 oz) 2 cans (15 oz) 3 3 tbsp 3 tbsp 1 tbsp 2 tbsp 2 tsp ½ tsp 2 cups 1 cup

Ground chuck Sweet onion, diced Garlic, minced Water Beef base (beef bouillon) High quality tomato sauce (Tomasso) High quality diced tomatoes (Tomasso) Bay leaves Low sodium soy sauce Worcester sauce Sea salt Italian seasoning Smoked paprika Black pepper Elbow macaroni noodles (uncooked) Shredded sharp cheddar Fresh Italian parsley chopped

DIRECTIONS 1. Brown ground beef in a deep skillet or pot over medium heat. Remove beef and drain fat from the pan. Keep beef to the side and add the diced onions and cook over medium heat for about 5 min. until tender. Add the garlic and cook for another minute. 2. Return the beef to the pot and add water, beef base, both cans of tomatoes and sauce, soy and Worcester sauce, bay leaves, salt, Italian seasoning, paprika and black pepper. Stir together well, bring to a boil and then reduce to low and cover. Simmer for 15 min. 3. Last step: Stir in the elbow macaroni and simmer for 15-20 min., stirring occasionally.

ne of our favorite features at 919 Magazine is showcasing products that are natural, organic and good for you. With that said, we have fallen in love with Zoha Fragrances. Unlike most perfumes that are 80-97 percent alcohol-based, Zoha products are made without alcohol and last longer and better than many fragrances on the market today. All 18 fragrances are available in an oil-mist or roll-on form. Yummy smells such as Floral Allure, Cherry Bloom and — my new personal favorite — Amber Bloom. What makes Zoha fragrances so unique is that the aroma compounds all evolve around your skin chemistry; therefore, no one person will have the exact same scent experience. For more information or to order, visit zohafragrances. com or amazon.com.
