Chive it up tonight

Herb Potato Mash
by Lane

2 1/2 pounds small red-skinned potatoes
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup heavy cream
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
3 tablespoons snipped fresh chives
2 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves

Boil potatoes over medium heat for about 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain pot of potatoes and add butter and let melt. Next add cream, garlic powder, salt and pepper and mash together. I like to have the potatoes be a little lumpy for this recipe. Next lighltly scatter chives and basil in and stir lightly.
