Ranch Mashed Potatoes

This recipe comes from Rachael Ray. I'm always looking for a good way to jazz up mashed potatoes because it is such an easy side dish to make and the flavor of the mix-ins can be adapted to almost any meal.

-5 to 7 small red potatoes
-Milk, both to taste
-A small handful fresh chives, finely chopped
-A small handful fresh dill, finely chopped
-A small handful flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
-1 cup sour cream

Heat up the potatoes in a pot of boiling water until fork tender. Drain. Mash the potatoes with the butter and milk. 
Add in the fresh herbs and sour cream. 

Enjoy with some salt and pepper if desired.

When you make this recipe, reduce the dill! J's biggest complaint was that the dill flavor was too strong, and I agree, that flavor herb should have been cut in half compared to proportion of the others. Overall, this was a good recipe, there was a ranch flavor to the potatoes and it was nice to use fresh herbs, it might have been easier to mix in a ranch seasoning packet, but I always appreciate using fresh ingredients. The fresh herbs also added a nice color to the mashed potatoes.
