    Michelle S.'s Note:

    I make this whenever fresh mushrooms are on sale, and I need a comforting soup. This is from one of those little magazines at the checkout line in the grocery store...I'm glad I had to wait in line the day I found this recipe. This can easily be doubled for 4 servings.

      One of the best soups we've ever had - creamy, zesty, and totally memorable. Did I mention easy, too? I made this exactly as written and only wish I'd doubled the recipe as we slurped this up PDQ! The spice was great, the mushroom flavor was pronounced, and actually, a little does go a long way, as this is a rich, delicious, superb soup. Thanks for a winner, Michelle! Lovely.

      Excellent! A quick, easy to make creamy mushroom soup accented with tarragon, cayenne pepper and white wine. The wine accents the flavor of the mushrooms and onions to give balance to the cayenne and tarragon. I used small Crimini mushrooms and substituted heavy cream for the half and half because I needed to use it up. DH loves mushrooms and now DH loves Michelle !
