This is as good as it gets!! Tastes just like the soup at a chinese restaurant!! Easy to make!! My friend and I used to hit a chinese buffet once a week. We would drive 30 min to eat at one. I would love to find all my favorite recipes and i'm adding this one to the list. My boyfriend and I LOVE it.
I made this tonight for a light dinner and it turned out great! I made it exactly as written except left out the salt as suggested. I also added some mixed frozen veggies (corn, carrots, green beans). I think next time I will add a little more cornstarch because I like my broth a little thicker and cut it down to 1 egg. Those are just personal preferences though. Thanks!

<p>I currently live in Arizona and although when I moved here I was sure I'd hate it - I absolutly love it here! My husband and I have owned our own business for almost 10 years and have a flexible schedule which I love! The most important thing to me right now is my family - I couldn't be happier to be a Mom! I don't want to miss out on a thing! I love to cook. I know it's nerdy, but I am a huge interest in food storage, canning, and emergency prepardness (don't make fun). Give me a wheat grinder and I'm in heaven! I also love photography, everything about the outdoors, sewing, playing cards, and playing with my girls. Pet peeve, by far, is when I am forced to waste time (traffic, waiting in line, etc.) I guess I'm just one impatient woman! <br />src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></p>
