I left out the sugar and added the juice of half a lemon (while stirring, very slowly) after the sour cream was added and warmed...I wanted something a little more savory to put over top of mashed potatoes and this was lovely. I used fresh tarragon, probably about 2TBSP or more. Very French-y ;) Thank you for sharing!

Delicious! This was a big hit with the family and we'll make it a part of family dinners to come. I don't usually like to make multi step recipes on a weeknight after work, but this was relatively easy and so worth it. (I had a full dinner on the table within an hour of walking in the door having no idea what I was going to cook.) It has the comfort of a "cream of" soup recipe, but with the fresh ingredients it tastes so much better. Next time I will add more garlic and fiddle with different mushrooms for a change of pace. Also, I can't wait to have fresh tarragon to try. I only had dried tarragon and it was great - fresh tarragon would be amazing. Most excellent, thank you!

Yummy! This is very tasty. I used portabellas for the extra flavor. So rich!
