On Entertaining…


A friend asked me today if I had a good scalloped potato recipe that she could use for Easter Sunday dinner.  If you too are looking for a scalloped potato recipe, here is one for you to try.  I always use some version of this basic recipe because it’s easy to prepare and always comes out right.
