“When my nephew was just three, I made potatoes Dauphinoise for Mother’s Day. He spent the evening nibbling on "dolphin potatoes." That memory came back to me as this was in the oven and has been named for him. The preparation of this Italian-French inspired dish goes quickly and leaves you with a lovely company worthy dish, but don’t let that stop you from making it for the family. The best part is no one will know that the sinfully rich sauce is light and low-fat.”
