    a good roasted root veggie mix is also wonderful right now

    I was totally thinking about doing mashed sweet potatoes using mascarpone cheese instead of butter or sour cream...what's your receipe?

    And to stay on topic, they (the Top Chef judges) should have sent both ostrich egg lover and sickly sweet lemon martini maker home. Oh well.

    no cheese...Its not so much about the recipe as the process for me.

    You have to find some really good sweet potatoes. I find that the ones that are medium in color work the best for flavor. Too dark or too light and the flavor is bland. I either steam or bake them until very soft, then peel them while still hot. Then, with a masher or fork, not with a mixer I mash them with a bit a freshly cracked sea salt and butter, nothing else. They mix best when they are still hot. Dont use a mixer, it changes the composition of the potato and makes them too starchy. But the right ratio of butter to potato enhances their sweetness.

    Would a ricer work? I've been itching to use my ricer on something other than potatoes or tofu. Super thanks for the suggestion.

    I am not sure how a ricer would be with sweet potatoes. They are a bit more fibrous than other potatoes. The stringy part would make it more difficult. I also think that would change the texture and break down the potato too much. It wont be fluffy like they should be...

    I am old school though, when it comes to certain things like this. For mashed potatoes, I believe in mashing.

    fuck, I know!

    pretty awesome that padma spit it out anyways.

    I feel like mascarpone would make the potatoes really stodgy. Go for Kira's advice. You should make some roasted beetroot too. I can never have enough

    Martha Stewart...I love Martha.

    I've learned so much from her: how to fold fitted sheets, and how to stack towels flat, etc.

    me too! I never could fold them without having them end up in this insanely large mess. She gave a demo on one show and now my sheet stacks are nice and neat, or at least better than they used to be.

    this show is hilarious...big hair, white trash, pill popping family drama, and heavy southern accents.
