Wonderful as all the recipes I've tried from Miss Paula! Kind of wondering if all the "terrible" reviews from "anonymous" have been biased or "operator error" as this recipe is very easy and super delicious!!!!

From the very first time I made this recipe my whole family was in love with it. I even got distracted one time with the kids and forgot to drain the water from the potatoes (luckily there wasn't very much), threw everything in, started mashing, and they still turned out fantastic. So simple, yet super delicious. This is now the only recipe I use.
