Gluten-Free Baked Potato Soup

Life sucks pretty bad right now here.
Randy is sick. I am in a neck brace. I am bored crazy. There really is nothing that can be done when a Mom is down. The house gets messy and either you spend a fortune on takeout or you deal with the pain and cook. That is what I did today. I dealt with it. Blah blah blah. You don't need to hear it. I made baked potato soup for the sicky.
Ingredients
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour - gluten free
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 cups chicken broth
2 large baked potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 cup half-and-half cream
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
Shredded Cheddar cheese
Minced fresh parsley
sour cream
Directions
 I use 1 TB olive oil Saute onion and garlic until soft.
 Stir in flour, salt, basil and pepper; mix well. Gradually add broth. Bring to boil; boil and stir for 2 minutes.
 Add the potatoes, cream and hot pepper sauce; heat through but do not boil. Garnish with sour cream, cheese and parsley.
