    Good recipe, and easy to make! Don't leave out the fresh herbs....they are what make this dish. Made for Zaar Stars tag.

    Simple yet so effective! I love these flavours put together so this dish is a winner for me. I put the butter on straight after straining the potatoes so it melted in nicely, then added the sour cream. I experimented by using Cavenders Greek seasoning in place of the herbs which worked really well. Thanks for a lovely recipe!

    Really good stuff! I left my skins on because I always do that these days for the nutrients. I wasn't sure when the butter was suppose to go on but I figured it was right before the sour cream. Very yummy alongside some salmon for our meal tonight. I had some fresh dill so I used that for the herbs and I used low fat sour cream and margarine to make this diet friendly too. Made for 1-2-3 tag.

    A lovely, simple dish that delivers. I used light sour cream and no butter and sprinkled with chives. Can you get any easier? I used tiny Yukon Golds and halved them. This is truly a company worthy side but simple enough for week night suppers. Be sure to add some salt to the cooking water as it says. The potatoes don't absorb a lot but it adds enough so that there is no need to add any more. Thanks Marra for a winner. :D

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="">
