Creamy mashed potatoes are something I love dearly. Many many moons ago when I was in law school a group of us stuck around for the Thanksgiving holiday and decided we would do our own big dinner. I happily volunteered to make mashed potatoes. Only problem was I didn't know how to cook. But I figured I was a smarty pants and could figure it out.
Too bad I didn't have the good sense to consult a cookbook, and what resulted was a pot of gluey undercooked, over mashed, sad sad potatoes. Needless to say, I never tried again. Seriously, we've been using powdered 'just add water' mixes since then. (I know. Dreadful.)
Until now. Today it was finally time for a do-over! So, I dabbled around the kitchen all morning and into the afternoon until I came up with this deliciously delicious Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I think this recipe is as good as my first one was bad. And that's saying something.
