Mashed Potatoes

My friend, Marla at Always Nesting, is celebrating her 100th post with a TJ Maxx giftcard giveaway.  Go check it out!  In this post, she also asks you to name your favorite comfort food.  The words food and comfort just go together don't they? I think my subconscious brain lit up when I read the words.  I've been trying to tell my brain for a whole month that January would be starvation time.  We know how that works.  It's like reverse psychology. I almost baked some cookies today before I thought about it.  My fav comfort food is mashed potatoes. Just reminds me of simple times, home and family.  I always make mine with evaporated milk and lots of butter.  Paula Deen's loaded mashed potato recipe is delicious when I'm in the mood to stray from the basic.  Come to think of it, potatoes are good any way you cook them.  Anyone have a good potato recipe they'd like to share?
