Restaurant Style Egg Drop Soup
I never made egg drop soup so I used this recipe as a starting point and adjusted according to comments /personal taste. If I remember correctly, I steeped quite a few minced green onions & 2 garlic cloves in broth. Added the ginger, a bit of sesame oil, soy sauce, sriracha for some heat and a splash of vinegar for sour as it needed more flavor for my taste. Removed cloves, thickened with 2tbsp cornstarch before adding 3/4 eggs (didn't bother separating one of the eggs-hate waste). White pepper & salt to taste. I also threw in handfuls of fresh spinach at the end to add some vitamins. Served immediately.

Japanese Chicken Wings
I doubled the sauce using only half of the recommended sugar and added some sriracha hot chile sauce to taste. (I think I add cornstarch to thicken it so it would stick) Did not use egg or flour, just salted chicken and poured over chicken legs/thighs after baking them for 30-45 minutes depending on size at 400(thay were big chickens). Baked for another 30 minutes at 375 basting often. For side dishes I Made white rice and for vegetable dish heated a teaspoon of sesame oil and olive oil and stir fried bok choy, spinach, shredded carrots sprinkled with sunflower seeds and soy sauce.

Hearty Ranch and Bacon Potato Soup
I only made this because I had a packet of ranch in my pantry left over from the super bowl game that I didn't know what to do with. I added carrot and a bit of garlic. Also I drained the bacon grease and added a tad of butter to saute. Could have used olive oil. It was ok, but for a comfort food I like the classic nostalgic flavor of what I remember growing up. I didn't grow up on ranch so that flavor, while subtle, didn't do it for me, and masked the flavors of the veggies IMO. To each there own. Oh, and I did use just a tad of sour cream like many other reviews suggested.
