    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.

      There are only three ingredients; it would be easy to determine the nutritional information.

    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.

      You should be ashamed for thinking people care about your superior preaching. It's a recipe. It's titled "luxurious" for a reason, dear. Perhaps you should focus on lightening your mood instead of your mashed potatoes recipe.

    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?
