A recipe from Ricardo that I did yesterday. These mashed potatoes are creamy and delicious. I used more chives than requested. And instead of using buttermilk, I made my own with milk and adding vinegar. That was perfect.

  2. With a mash potatoes, mash the potatoes with the butter. Then with an electric mixer, reduce the mixture to a puree with the buttermilk and chive. Add salt and pepper.

Excellent. Loved the addition of the chives. I've made mashed potatoes with buttermilk before and really like it. DH usually doesn't eat leftover potatoes but he asked me to save these tonight. Very fluffy and very good. Thanks Made for Tic-Tac-Toe
