A Bowl of Sunshine for this Snowy Day
April 4, 2016
I don’t know anything more delicious – or more comforting – than this rich, tart, soothing soup.
6 cups homemade chicken stock
1/3 cup uncooked rice
4 eggs, separated, whites saved for another use
1/2 teaspoon salt
Bring the chicken stock to a boil, add the rice, turn the heat down to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, grate the rind from one lemon, and squeeze its juice into a small bowl.
Add the egg yolks to the lemon mixture. Whisk in salt.
When the rice is tender, whisk about half a cup of the hot stock into the yolks, then slowly pour the yolks into the soup, stirring constantly. Cook gently for about five minutes, or until the soup is slightly thickened.

PERFECT !!!! Thank you for brightening this drury Monday…. Delicious.
A few of us on Chow Hound are wondering where we can buy the pink rum cake that was served at Elite Bakery ions ago. Sure would appreciate a recipe. It had pink icing with chocolate sprinkles & possibly raspberry filling & yellow cake inside. Do you remember? I miss your show too!
Not a cake I’ve ever tasted. Where was Elite Bakery?
Elite Bakery was also a cafe on W 72nds st about a block west of Broadway. They also had a bakery on 3rd Avenue in the 50’s.
