About

This is from my mothers (she was polish but married to a hungarian) receipe book. She taught me to cook by feel rather than exact measurements. It was always = if it looks like this or tastes liker this or has this consistency etc. One hint don't use to much paprika - that's a mistake most people make. If I have a bit of bacon fat around I will also use this to saute the onions. Enjoy on a nice winter day!
