Thanks Barb for one of those simple recipes that works so well. We halved the recipe and after putting it all together, held it in the oven for about 5 minutes-the potatoes soaked up all the yummy garlicky cream! I should add that we used the lightest cream available (18% fat) and it worked perfectly.
