Bethenny, I am sorry your show got cancelled. I have to say your honesty, straight forwardness had me engaged. Ok there are a couple of things I would have changed about your show, but overall you are a great interview, a "girlfriend" who asks the questions that we want to know and you ask them. You have always been the one to be a straight shooter. I know you will go far in this business and maybe there will be another forum for you to do the same thing again. If Ellen can engage audiences so can you. Keep up the great work and I hope the viewers will not have to wait too long. Love your receipes as well, you had great guests and I have to say also I recorded your show and learned alot. Sheryl, from Toronto Canada.

I'm making $86 an hour working from home. I was shocked when my neighbour told me she was averaging $95 but I see how it works now. I feel so much freedom now that I'm my own boss. This is what I do, http://CashJury.com

Does anyone know what size package of rice noodles to use and what is considered a "serving size?

What about the carrots and sprouts I see in the picture. Bethenny also mentioned chicken or tofu on the show and yes I thought she said to NOT add salt. Can you please post the full recipe that was on the episode that aired. I look forward to trying it out.

Many thanks!

On the show, Bethenny said not to add additional salt, yet you have it in the recipe.
