I tried this because I hac not hac scalloped potatoes for awhile. after making it I was disappointed becase of the way it looked. (not like Moms) It looked dry and not natural at all. I took some to work the next day and was completely surprised at the taste alone. Friends tasted it also and loved it so mauch they wanted the recipe. I still can't explain how much I did like this after it set over night.
