  1. A good basic mash with a little something extra, scaled back a little and my measurements may have not have been spot on (and :oops: as I am reviewing just realized I forgot the garlic - so sorry), don't think I used the best of potatoes (they were home grown and given to us and don't know type) but they were a bit gluie which makes me think it was the type of potatoe which didn't lend itself best to mashing. Thank you Chef Buggsy Mate - a recipe a will give another go with potatoes I know and REMEMBER THE GARLIC (though will use roasted - not keen on raw in dishes), made for Potluck Tag.
  2. These were so good. I didn't use but about 2 lbs of potatoes and adjusted the other ingredients accordingly. The cream cheese really stood out and gave these an amazing flavor. I also mixed the paprika into the potatos instead of ontop of them. Although, they would have been prettier for the picture that way. My whole family just loved these. Thanks for sharing. Prepared for PAC.


I am blessed with a wonderful dh and four fantastic, crazy children. I am a stay at home mom who works from son up till son down. My favorite cookbook is not one that I cook with very often, it actually sits on top of my pantry propped up in an old basket. The cookbook was given to my grandmother just prior to her marriage to my grandfather and it has the family prayer and some recipes that my great-grandmother penned in her own hand inside. It is called All About Home Baking. <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=> <img src=> <img src=""> <img src="">
