Dauphinoise Potatoes

I was born in the mid-west and my love of potatoes and cheese confirms that.

Crispy Leaf Potatoes

Crispy, oven-baked leaf potatoes. These are an adapted version of a dish my mom used to make when I was a kid. Scalloped potatoes were one of her signature dishes. Talk about decadent; potatoes, cream, butter, cheese…need I say more, they were outrageously good. My leaf potatoes are a slightly healthier twist, I still use […]
