Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Ok, so… I have been trying for over 11 years now to make Mashed Potatoes that were actually edible.  I know, I know… sounds like such a simple thing, right?  Mashed potatoes.  Well, mine always came out either tasteless, like soup or way too hard.  I made some yesterday that were simply unbelievable.  They even inspired my husband to write a Facebook status update!  LOL

Wondering what to serve with your Mashed Potatoes?  Check out my Super Simple Chicken Gravy Recipe and my Cajun Chicken with Pomegranate-Mango Chipotle Sauce Recipe.  YUM!
