Awesome!! I loved loved loved these potatoes. The fresh rosemary and pine nuts were terrific. And who would believe that brown sugar would taste good in mashed potatoes?!? Well it does!! I made it exactly as listed (with 1% milk) and wouldn't change a thing! I served this with Recipe #362455 and Recipe #203925 (see a theme?). Made for Potluck Tag. Thanks! :)

What a nice change from plain mashed potatoes! I love rosemary and pine nuts but never knew they went so well together. Thanks for a great recipe!

These are great. Love the rosemary and pine nuts together, but will leave out the sugar next time.
