Hot And Sour Chicken Soup

I love this soup! Not only do I love the flavor combination of spicy and sour but I love the way the chicken comes out nice and tender.

Our first cooking lab was snickerdoodles with various replacements: flax instead of eggs, whole wheat and gluten free flour mix instead of white flour, different sweeteners instead of granulated sugar, etc. Pretty interesting to see how much the […] read more
