Creamy Mashed Potatoes

I’ve been wanting to post my Mashed Potato recipe for a long time now but kept putting it off because it is just so easy and not much to it.  I’m that person who can cook a really hard meal and it comes out tasting scrumptious but can’t make boiled rice to save my life.  How can someone mess up rice??  Well…I can!  But, I’ve mastered these mashed...
