Potatoes with Almonds

Robin DuPree


This is one recipe that I could not stop eating, and it will be a family favorite for futures to come. I altered the recipe slightly by adding bacon and spinach to the ingredients, but I have to say that the turmeric cream and almonds make this recipe so delicious.
