4 egg whites (room temperature)
1/2 cup sifted sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Never let things boil over again!!
The solution: a wooden spoon!
Place the wooden spoon over the top of an open (not lidded) pot of boiling soup, pasta, rice, etc. and it won't boil over. I have no idea how this works - it's just magic.
For goodness sakes, don't mash them with a blender, food processor, or mixer. Just use a plain ole' potato masher by hand. The more you work with the potatoes, the more mushy and starchy they become.
Make mashed potatoes at the last minute. Potatoes don't like to wait for anyone - they give up their tastiness! If you must make them ahead of time, stick them in a crock pot on warm and fluff them before serving.
