All done!  Yum!

All done! Yum!

I made these potatoes and froze them a couple of months ago and they tasted very good.  I am making them fresh for dinner today with my pork tenderloin.  I figured I’ll steam some carrots with them and it will be a healthy, yet tasty dinner.  Make sure to check out my pork tenderloin recipe post.

Here’s the recipe for the Garlic Cheddar Mashed Potatoes:

6 potatoes, peeled and diced
6 cloves garlic, peeled-not minced
1/3 cup buttermilk  (check out recipe for this down below))
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
Notes / Directions
Cook potatoes and garlic together until tender. Mash with buttermilk, cheese, salt and paprika.To make buttermilk, use just under one cup of milk and add 1 tbsp of white vinegar
This is very simple and very good!

Home Made Buttermilk and Heavy Cream

Today is leftover day, so I thought I would share a couple of substitute recipes.  Have you ever wanted to make a certain dish only to find that you don’t have an ingredient?  Or, you want to make a certain recipe but don’t want to spend the extra money on a certain ingredient?  I am very frugal since we are a family of 6 with a single income that seems to shrink yearly.  I will share the two recipes I use most often.  They are buttermilk and heavy cream recipes.  I was quite amazed at how easy they are and only 2 ingredients each!  They work too!   Please check out my Pinterest page for more recipes!  It’s under Shelly Boynton.

Heavy Cream:


  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup butter


1. Melt the butter.

2. Pour it into the milk, and stir.

3. Use in place of one cup of heavy cream.

Note: This substitute while not whip.

Tip: If you use low-fat milk, add a tablespoon of flour to the mixture to thicken.


  • – 1 cup of milk
  • – 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar
  1. Mix the two together – chill for 5 minutes.
  2. Use as buttermilk

Have a great day!
