The Amish have a cuisine that emphasizes caloric intake because these people work literally from sunrise until long after dark in the fields.
No powered mechanical assistance allowed (for the most part). The Amish are renowned for their hospitality, delicious food and intense work ethic that showed how life in the 19th century was truly lived. I greatly admire them and was lucky enough to live with an Amish family for a week when I was 5. It was truly a life-changing experience. :)
This recipe for mashed potatoes makes the richest and most delicious taters you’ll ever taste – the secret is the addition of cream cheese and sour cream beyond the standard butter and milk.
They’re simple but delicious beyond compare – just know they’re diet-busters and enjoy! They also serve 20, so feel free to ½ the recipe or more. :)
