white mashed potatoes

Mashed potatoes are the best with ANY meal – and these were particularly tasty – always love when potatoes arrive in my weekly Produce Farmers Direct box!

Mashed Potato Recipe


  • 10-12 small white potatoes, washed and cut into chunks
  • 3-4 Tbs unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place cut potatoes into medium pot, add water to just cover
  2. Bring to a boil, boil gently for 18-20 minutes or until tender
  3. Drain, return potatoes to hot pot, place back on hot burner (burner turned off) for about 1 minute to steam off excess water
  4. Smash potatoes in pot
  5. Add butter, smash again
  6. Add half and half and salt and pepper to taste
  7. Mash to desired consistency
  8. Serve immediately

So - a little about me. I'm Jane Frank, and I love to cook! I am a self taught cook, and very very much enjoy experimenting with new foods and cooking with fresh produce. I'm a widow, with a 16 year old daughter. She's a bit of a foodie, too, and she helps me cook and taste - and give her opinion! She takes a lot of my pictures for me - as my hands are full most of the time. Or else they are too dirty to pick up the camera! Enjoy the blog, please give feedback, and give me some hints about what you'd like to see on here! Happy Cooking!
