I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Creamy Mashed Potatoes with Garlic

Ok, mashed potatoes must be the most boring, bland looking vegetable ever!  But with a little help bland can turn to BAM!

5 lbs Yukon gold potatoes (worth the extra $$)
1 garlic head, roasted and mashed
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup half and half cream
2 tbsps Lowney's chicken broth powder (this is already salty so don't overdo adding extra salt)
1/2 cup regular or roasted red pepper hummus (store bought or homemade... see below for both the hummus recipe and a quick "roasted" garlic recipe link)

🠋Booooring 😞😴

Once you have boiled your potatoes, drain and mash them. Then add the remaining ingredients and mash together until well combined and smooth. Add more cream if you like. Yum!

Serves 10 people
