I love Martha Stewart and every single thing about her. She is my hero and reminds me of my Mother who is also from the east coast. There is a right way to do things and there truly is a place for everything! Anyone not living and doing things Marthas way is doing it wrong! This mashed potato recipie is just as it's called, luxurious and delicious, thank you Martha.

I think that adding nutritional information to the recipes would go a long way in helping home cooks to choose the best recipes for them and their families. I don think I wanted be labeled as someone who preaches as in another comment but I think we all deserve to know the the nutritional information of recipes so that we can choose for ourselves which recipes we want to make and serve to our family and friends. I and many other readers have suggested this many time in the last few years.

Made this for Thanksgiving dinner this year and it's delicious. Simple and elegant. I can't wait to serve it. As far as the caloric load, honestly, who's eating this every day?

This recipe is one of my favorites. I make it every year during the holidays. I use Jersey whole cream from the nearby dairy farm and farm churned butter.

Martha should be ashamed of herself for suggesting that people need to make mashed potatoes that have 53 grams of fat and 35 grams of saturated fat PER SERVING, which by the way is 68% and 175% of recommended Daily Values. One can make terrific, satisfying mashed potatos with a couple of pats of butter and low fat milk; I do it regularly. This over-indulgent recipe is why there is an epidemic of heart disease in our Western diet.
