“Found on Allrecipes and can't wait to try it! All it needs is a loaf of hot bread and a nice green salad. Yum! Update: 06/10/2008 when posting the recipe I did it the way i found it but after making it, I chose not to include the tarragon (personal preference) dislike anise! Also used a little less butter and increased the broth by 1/4-1/2 cup.”
