I normally like my mashed 'taters on a slightly "chunky" side. I was recently making a batch for company we were having and wanted a more traditional creamier take on them. So, I pulled out a little hand mixer I have as I didn't feel like carting out the giant KitchenAid mixer. Well, I just wasn't getting the power I needed.
I asked dear hubby for some assistance. I think I need to rehome his Makita to my kitchen. ;-)
