Great Addition For Daughter's Recipe Box
My 12 yr old daughter is a blossoming cook. She asked for all the best recipes from her family of great cooks so she can "learn from the best". After I wiped the sentimental tears from my eyes I began gathering all of my favorites to give to her. This mashed potato recipe has been handed down through generations of cooks in my family and is the only way any of us prepare mashed potatoes. I just wanted to share this bit of family tradition. :)
