Chef John's Perfect Mashed Potatoes
This is exactly what I do only I use regular all-purpose potatoes. Mashing them with a masher is the way to go. Don't use a mixer unless you like Elmer' s glue consistency. Also I warm up the milk in the micro first.

Caprese Appetizer
I haven't tried this yet, but I've made lots of tomato salads. I am going to try this ,but add some fresh or granulated garlic and let it marinade for a which is what I do with all my tomato salads. Oh, and please don't add vinegar to tomato salad per my Italian grandma..... tomatoes already have acid. I'm glad Jessi didn't.
