As a kid, I looked forward to one of my mom's signature dinners: fried chicken wings and egg drop soup. I have no idea how she came up with this combination, but as a mother of two myself, I want to create the same memories for my own kids. The egg drop soup I've had in restaurants over the years always seemed to pale in comparison to my mom's and I recently figured out why. My mom added a tiny bit of sugar to the soup to balance the usually salty/peppery taste of this soup. No wonder why I loved this as a kid. I served this a few days ago and my son asked for seconds (something he never does)... so 'thanks, mom!' Enjoy this simple, yet tasty soup!
