Mashed Potatoes Done My Way

Deneece Gursky


My children will not eat anyone elses mashed potatos! I never thought they were all that special until I had friends over for Easter and they all wanted to know how I made them so delish. I guess some people have never added cheese and garlic. So I decided to post them just because : ) I do have pics at home so I will post when I am there
