“I love garlic soup with onions and potatoes! That being said; I don't like the flavor of the fennel fronds or the fennel bulb. However, am printing this the way I found it, with a few tweaks here & there.The sugar snap peas were nice and fresh and gave the dish a wonderful flavor! BHG online.It's just that I am with the Cubans, they don't like licorice either!”
