Joanna Gaines' Mashed Potatoes Recipe
My mom would be the first one to tell you that she's not really a cook, but there are a few things that she makes better than anyone I know. My dad has always been a meat-and-potatoes guy, so many years ago she figured out how to make a killer roast, dinner rolls, and mashed potatoes. She taught me this simple recipe and method long before I moved away for college, and I still remember how grateful I was to know it when I first got married. I can't think of any meal that's not made better by these dreamy mashed potatoes–and thankfully Chip feels the same way. I still. Make mashed potatoes pretty much exactly how she does, with a couple of exceptions: I always peel the potatoes in "stripes," leaving a little bit of the peel behind, because it also adds a bit of color; and my mom uses three sticks of butter instead of two.From Magnolia Table by Joanna Gaines.
