  1. Very much enjoyed, I particularly liked the addition of green onions and nutmeg, two flavours I really enjoy. I used the sour cream :) Nice creamy potatoes with lots of flavour, I made this to accompany an old favourite, Recipe #54257, and we enjoyed an excellent Sunday supper! Thanks, CountryMama!
  2. Not your ordinary mashed potatoes. These are heavenly delicious and the flavors really work well together. It's smooth and creamy with the occaissional bite of a green onion. I used sharp cheddar cheese and a bit more than a "pinch" of nutmeg. I used 2% milk and light sour cream, so I can say that it's easily "lightened" a bit without sacrificing flavor. This would go with pretty much any type of meat. I will certainly make this again. Thanx for posting the recipe!


I'm a young (if I do say so myself!) mom to 3 boys, ages 4, 2 and 4 months (as of Jan 08), and my husband and I live on 19 acres outside of a small village called Douglas. I grew up in Ottawa, but always wanted to live in this area, having spent a lot of time around here at my parents' cottage. Most of my time is spent with my boys and taking care of our new old 100 year old farmhouse. I absolutely love cooking and trying new things, and I'm very much into natural healing and healing through diet.
