Garlic Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes {Sass in the Kitchen}

 Let me start by saying that these pictures aren't the prettiest but what can you do when your 6 yr old breaks your camera?  I recently made these for my co-workers for May birthdays celebration and they were a hit!!!  I doubled the recipe and served them in a crock pot to keep them warm.  
Warning!!!  These are NOT low calorie by any means but they are comfort food at it's finest.  Hope you enjoy!!

3lbs of Yukon gold potatoes
1 stick of salted butter
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup of buttermilk
1 tbsp of minced garlic or more if your into that sort of thing
1 tbsp of kosher salt
1 tbsp of pepper (I used a combination of white pepper and black pepper) 

Start by peeling potatoes and roughly chopping them.  Add them to a pot of water and bring to a boil.  Boil until fork tender.  Remove and strain.  Warm milk, buttermilk and butter.  Add potatoes, milk, buttermilk, salt and pepper and butter to a bowl or stand mixer and whip until fluffy.  Serve hot.

Caterpillar Cake

I try to replicate just about anything into a cake.  I was recently given a task of doing a birthday cake for  a 3 yr old that was just like her favorite stuffed animal.  I love the way it turned out.

Here is the stuffed animal
