    This looks delicious Julie, I LOVE mashed potatoes and these look like the best ever.

    I use my crock pot for cooking pot roasts with vegetables. I’ve also cooked spaghetti sauce in it and pork chops.

    Have you ever used a pressure cooker? We bought an electronic one from QVC and we’re both afraid to try it 🙁

      Hey Jean,
      I haven’t tried one. My mom used one ALL the time growing up to cook a roast and vegetables. She put it in there and it would be done in no time. I guess in my mind it cooks meat, so I haven’t really thought about using one. I need to look into it.
      If you have one, I would try it!!!
      Julie

    This looks SO good! We’re making a lasagna in the slow cooker tomorrow. I’m a little interested to see how it turns out.

    I LOVE my crock pot – I’m not even sure why I put it away because I just get it out right away anyways, haha! I’ve never tried potatoes in my crock pot – looks like an easy Thanksgiving side though!

      I go through periods where I use it all the time and then sort of forget about it for awhile. It is such a time saver for me!

    These would be perfect for Thanksgiving dinner. Guess it’s time I invest in a crackpot again. Besides, it’ll make my life so much easier once the babies come. 🙂

    Looks delicious! I often deterred from making mashed potatoes because I don’t want to deal with boiling them.
