Easy Mashed Potatoes

Easy Mashed Potatoes

Hey, its Hani again. Because of some reasons Im in charge making two recipe posts this week. As you may know several days ago I made Mie Ayam or Indonesian Chicken Noodles, one of popular street foods in Indonesia. You can check that out.

For this recipe I got the inspiration from the amazing Chef John. Long before I started blogging Ive already subscribe to his youtube account and until now it always be my favorite youtube channel. His instructions are easy to follow and also he is so funny.

By the way I adapted his mashed potatoes recipe a bit. I didnt have milk at the moment I made this, so I substitute it with two tablespoons of heavy cream. And the taste? Sooo delicious I think the taste is the same. And this recipe doesnt include gazillions of ingredients, you may have them in your pantry right now.

And Im sorry this post is quite short because Im preparing special spring recipes for next week. Yulis and I cooked and tested the recipes for two consecutive nights. Lacked of sleep but we are happy how delicious the foods are. Stay tuned!
