My favorite recipes

I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I do! First we have my moms special Apple Oatmeal. YUM!!! Okay folks, next we have some peanut butter balls. Oh, I love these ones. They're healthy foods, but really good. And we have homemade potato chips. And we've got Amara's recipe. And very last of them them all, we've got steamed artichokes. I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I do! Good bye!

Mashed Potatoes and Gravy


15 potatoes
2 cups of milk
1/2 Tb salt (add more if it needs it)
1/2 stick of butter
5 dashes garlic powder


Peel and cut potatoes into big chunks. Cover with water and boil 20-30 minutes or until potatoes fall apart when stabbed with a fork. Drain water and return potatoes to the hot pot. Add butter, milk, salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Using a hand mixer, mash potatoes manually until potatoes are broken up. Then turn on the mixer and beat them until smooth (Warning: Be careful not to fling hot potatoes out of the pot). Turn off mixer and taste potatoes. Adjust seasoning if needed. Serve and enjoy!

For gravy just use brown gravy packets from store. Use instructions on gravy packet.
