Mashed Potatoes-How Do You Like Them and etc.
Growing up, my mother made a potato dish with every meal, except breakfast. And besides french fries, the best thing she made was mashed potatoes. My wife can't make a decent batch at all. They are either runny, lumpy, or plain bad. She's a good cook, but doesn't like mashed potatoes. My questions are:
1.Do you have a secret to good mashed potatoes?
2.What is your favorite combo to eat with mashed potatoes, because they need another food to be eaten with?
3.What type of potato makes the best mashed potato?
4.My parents made potato cakes out of leftovers, what can or do you add to make potato cakes a little more zesty or spicy?
