My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes

{ Prep Time: 45 mins / Difficulty: Intermediate / Yields: 8 servings }

8-10 potatoes, peeled
1 8-oz. pkg light cream cheese, softened
1 C sour cream
2 Tbsp chopped chives
White pepper
1/2 stick butter
pinch of baking soda

1. Quarter potatoes and place in large pot with enough water to cover. Add 1 tsp salt. Boil for 10-15 minutes until soft. Drain well. (Potatoes will soak up water, so make sure to immediately remove from water once soft and drain well before whipping.)
2. Whip hot potatoes and add cream cheese, sour cream and butter. Add pinch of baking soda.Continue beating until fluffy and smooth. Stir in chives, and add salt and pepper to taste.
3. Spray 9x13" casserole dish with cooking spray and add hot potatoes; cover tightly with foil. Refrigerate (24 hrs.) or freeze.
4. Bake at 350' for 1 hr (20 mins longer if frozen). This is a relatively messy project, so it's great for dinner parties, thanksgiving, xmas, etc. It's one less thing you need to worry about because you can get it done days/weeks beforehand!
