Avgolemono (Greek Lemon-Egg Soup) Fri, 08/29/08 8:15 AM (permalink)
I'd like some comments and hints and if possible a personal recipe from someone who has made the Avgolemono (Greek Lemon-Egg Soup).

          Here's a hint...taste once, adjust, and leave it alone. If you keep tasting and thinking it needs more lemon...it doesn't believe me. You get used to the lemon every time you taste it, and you guests will choke on it.

          ...been there, done that, my wife won't let me make it any more.
