Emigrated from America to New Zealand and never looked back. Couldn't have asked for a better husband, family & life!


A family favourite for certain, this lovely side is a perfect accompaniment for all sorts of mains. It goes well, with poultry, pork, beef and lamb. It also sneaks in a bit of colourful veg if you have family members with an aversion to all things rich in vitamins and fiber (or beta carotene).


4-5 Med/Lg Potatoes
1 Lg Carrot
3 Tbsp Lite Creme Fraiche (or Sour Cream/Cream)
2 Tbsp Butter
1/2 Cup Colby Cheese
2 Tsp Parsley (finely chopped or flakes)
Salt & Pepper to Taste

Peel & cut veggies into similar sized cubes/chunks then boil in salted water for approximately 15 minutes.
Drain well and add all other ingerdients then mash until creamy and all (or most) lumps are gone.

Easy peasy, right??? This is also a great topping for cottage pies and similar casseroles, so…what are you waiting for, eh?
