About this Cook
I'm an academic primary care physician in the suburbs north of New York City (I teach at a medical college).

My favorite things to cook
Chicken soup with matzo balls, lasagne

Quickie French Onion Soup
The problem with this recipe is that it calls for CONDENSED broth WITH NO WATER TO DILUTE IT. Try swapping regular broth (not condensed) and it will be FAR less salty (or better yet, use low-sodium broth and add salt yourself to taste).
