Not very light but so very good. I typically go for roasted potatoes, but my hubby loves mashed. This is a great recipe when you want to splurge.
Simple Mashed Potatoes
"This is the perfect recipe for mashed potatoes. The proportions of ingredients are exactly right. You can use whipping cream or half & half - either way is delicious! You can use white pepper rather than black pepper if you prefer." -peaches09
