    LifeIsGood's Note:

    These mashed potatoes are creamy, fluffy and slightly tangy thanks to the creme fraiche. A ricer is used on the potatoes to make them really smooth, but you could always mash by hand. Simple goodness! From Food & Wine. *Note: the mashed potatoes can be made ahead of time and kept at room temperature for up to 3 hours. Reheat before serving. (You may need to add a bit more milk.)*

      I love mashed potatoes, and these were tasty!! Great easy recipe. If you have no creme fraiche, sour cream will do. My kids really liked it and it is a nice alternative to plain mashed potatoes. And My seven year old grandson said of these potatoes, "It just eating a clouds." Everyone loved these silky smooth potatoes, and so creamy! Thank you for sharing this fantastic recipe! Happy Cooking to y'all!.....PRMR 2013 Grpa
