“I don't think I've found a way to prepare potatoes that I don't like. They're all good. Mashed potatoes, in particular, just screams "comfort food" to me. When a holiday or special occasion comes around, I like to turn to this recipe just to dress things up a bit. Sounds a little fancier, but tastes delicious.”
