It’s that time of year that is known for upping the ante. The HOLIDAY SEASON is practically here, all! And I know for many of you out there, that means shopping, coordinating, rushing around, going bananas in the kitchen whipping up this dish and that dish for this potluck, that family event, this kiddo’s school shenanigans . . .. It’s enough to make a person want to curl up in a corner and cry “Bah-Humbug!” to it all.

Whether we need to cart a crowd-pleasing side dish to that umpteenth holiday potluck or are seeking a straight-up comfort-food to eat by the bowlful when we’ve had it with the hustle and bustle, these Garlicky Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes have our backs!
Hello, all! Happy Thanksgiving!!!
This is historically my favorite holiday; I hold many rich memories around Thanksgiving. For one, there is our big Detroit holiday tradition, the 90th annual America’s Thanksgiving Parade! I have it on the telly as I am typing. The actual parade hasn’t started as of yet, but I am already all warm and fuzzy inside from the coverage I’ve seen so far, because I’ve been watching it every year of my life that I can remember. All kinds of pleasant childhood memories are summoned, of waking up to my mother preparing a turkey and other Thanksgiving goodies with the parade on in the background. My family hosted Thanksgiving for a number of years.
