Dill Mashed Potatoes and the SRC

I am sad to say that this is my last hurrah with the Secret Recipe Club... :( It has been so much fun, finding new blogs to check out, trying new recipes that I might not have found with the club and just cooking up a storm. But, lately it seems that I am just not keeping up with the blog enough - sick kids, vacations, work and just life in general is coming up and all of that comes before a blog... So, rather then be someone that can't give her all to the group that she is in, I am going to bow out. I'll still be blogging (you should see the recipes piling up around here) but just more on my own terms! That being said...

This month I had the honor of checking out the blog Stephanie has a variety of gluten free, healthy, veggie recipe ideas on her blog and it was very interesting going through them. What does a meat and potatoes kind of girl find to make on a mainly veggie type blog? Why mashed potatoes of course!! They were a different taste from our regular potatoes and oddly addicting... Check them out sometime and take a step off the beaten path! :)

Dill Mashed Potatoes
(recipe found on

4 medium red potatoes, scrubbed and diced
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
1 tablespoon spicy mustard
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
dash of lemon juice
black pepper, to taste

Place potatoes in saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and allow to boil until potatoes are soft enough to pierce with a fork, about 15 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of potato water. Add remaining ingredients and mash with potato masher. Add potato water to create desired consistency (I only added a bit.) Enjoy these warm or cold!


  1. Sorry to see you go, but totally understand you!

  2. You'll be missed, Raina, but I completely understand. Something has to give. I'll still be following along in your cooking adventures. Take care.

  3. Sorry to see you leave the SRC, it's been fun to get to know you through the club but I'll still be following along.

    If you haven't already, I'd love for you to check out my SRC entry Loaded Potato Soup.


  4. You can never go wrong with mashed potatoes, in my opinion. These sound delicious. Sorry to see you go!

  5. what a great recipe- yay for src :)

  6. Glad they worked for you! It's little like a merge between potato salad and mashed potatoes, I think. But, oddly enough, a recipe I haven't made in quite a long time. Should do them again...

  7. Mashed potatoes are so fun add herbs to. Looks good.

  8. Sad to see you leave but totally can understand!

  9. sorry to see you go.

    LOVE mashed potatoes and these look delicious.

  10. Mashed potatoes with mustard in it? We'll have to try these soon! They'd be delicious with pork chops. Sorry to see you leave SRC!
