Nancy's Cookbook

About 5 years ago, my uncle had embarked on collecting all of our Grandmothers Italian recipes. He complied them into an entire cookbook, which he then gave all of us grandchildren a copy.

By popular demand, he's decided to print up some copies to sell, in a nicely bound form. He's asked me to contribute design duties, starting with a cover:

And with that, here's a recipe for Garlic Mashed Potatoes:

2 LB baking potatoes
2 Large cloves of roasted garlic, reserving the oil
1/4 c Unsalted butter
1 c Milk
Salt & Pepper to taste
1/4 minced Italian parsley

Peel and cut the potatoes into large pieces. Place in a medium sized pot with salted water and bring to a boil. Cook 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are easily pierced with a fork. Drain potatoes, mash adding butter, milk, garlic, pulp and garlic flavored oil. Mix well. Season with salt, pepper and Italian parsley.

Serves 6
