Reviews for Oh-So-Good Creamy Mashed Potatoes
"2-1/2 c. of milk is way too much milk. Potatoes were soupy. Cut back on the milk. I topped with fresh chives, minced"
"One of the best mashed potato recipes I have ever made. Quick, easy, and delicious. You can always doctor it up by adding some of your own likes but really is super tasty just the way it is."
"Loved them. Definitely a keeper."
