    The humble potato makes its way to the Thanksgiving dinner table in many forms. Of course, there are the classic mashed potatoes and sweet potato casseroles, but there are plenty of other creamy, baked delicious dishes made using the versatile starch. Many of these dishes are traditionally made with plenty of butter, cream, and cheese.

    Police officers stand around climate protection demonstrator Aimée van Baalen (22) on Wexstraße. She belongs to the group "Last Generation". After a long break, activists have now blocked numerous streets in the city today.Paul Zinken | Picture Alliance | Getty Images Police have arrested two climate activists who threw mashed potatoes at a Claude Monet painting in a museum in Germany to protest fossil fuel production, a stunt which caused no damage to the art. The protestors on Sunday targeted Monet's "Les Meules" at the Barberini Museum in Potsdam, a city on the border of Berlin. The impressionist painting, which was enclosed in protective glass, sold for $110.7 million at a 2019 auction. The German climate group Last Generation took credit for the stunt. The group posted video footage on Twitter showing a man and a woman tossing mashed potatoes at the painting, kneeling in front of it and gluing their hands to the wall. The incident was the latest attack on famous artwork carried out by protesters calling for action on climate change. Earlier this month, protesters from the campaign group...
    Screenshot via Twitter. Here we go again. Anyone who’s ever been around a toddler understands that if you respond to the tantrum with a reward — by giving them the toy or cookie or whatever they’re demanding — you’re basically training the kid to throw tantrums. And that’s exactly what’s happening now, with the international media training climate protesters to throw food and glue themselves to walls in order to get publicity for their manifestos. The latest group of climate protesters having a food fight with a priceless work of art were two Germans who threw mashed potatoes on a painting by French Impressionist Claude Monet, “Grainstacks,” at the Barberini Museum in Potsdam, Germany, and then glued their hands to the wall by the painting as they shouted about climate change. This follows a similar stunt by two other protesters at a London museum who threw tomato soup on one of Vincent Van Gogh’s famous “Sunflowers” paintings and glued themselves to the wall. “Grainstacks” is part of a series of 25 paintings Monet created in 1890-91 of the grain stacks...

    CREAMY mashed potato is the ultimate side - but it can also be quite time-consuming and the hard efforts won't always pay off. However, according to a cooking enthusiast, there's a more simple way that doesn't involve strenuous mashing and whisking. 3Polly's cooking videos have amassed her 46 million likes on TikTokCredit: pollypocketsy/Tik Tok The TikTok user Polly Pocketsy (@pollypocketsy) has taken it to social media to share her clever potato mash hack, where it's been seen by close to 45,000 people.

    At the end of every Thanksgiving celebration, there's always that one aunt who insists on sending you home with the leftovers. "What am I gonna do with all these potatoes?!" she asks nobody in particular. "Your uncle and I can't possibly finish all this food!" she adds, usually while fumbling around in a drawer of plastic containers she's been saving for this exact purpose. A moment later, when she finishes scooping an ungodly amount of mashed potatoes into a gigantic plastic tub that once held margarine, she'll hand it over, kiss you on the cheek, and send you on your way.

    ESPN analyst Mel Kiper has fired off a lot of hot NFL Draft takes throughout his career, but nothing he has uttered at the league’s annual event can possibly rival his thoughts on pizza. During the most recent episode of the “ESPN Daily” podcast, Kiper spoke to Pablo Torre about several topics, including his strange eating habits. Kiper told Torre that he eats pumpkin pie “as many times as I possibly can” and will even kick off his morning with pumpkin pie for breakfast. He doesn’t eat pumpkin pie every day, but that’s only because it is not always available to him. NFL MOCK DRAFT: What Kiper, other experts are saying about first round Oh, but it gets weirder. Torre then asked Kiper to reveal his pizza-eating process, and it is . . . something. “I take the cheese off the pizza, and I eat the pizza with mashed potatoes. So, mashed potatoes and pizza without cheese is what I do,” Kiper said. “I think I’m healthy because I’m not eating the cheese, right? I don’t eat the cheese. I just leave a little on there for the flavor. The cheese...
    Martha Stewart's cinnamon rolls are a mashed potato-infused treat. Lauren Edmonds Insider Martha Stewart created a cinnamon-roll recipe that incorporates mashed potatoes. Stewart said that mashed potatoes are "the secret behind the light texture" of her cinnamon rolls. The mashed potatoes definitely added a fluffy consistency, but the recipe was time-consuming.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. According to Martha Stewart, cinnamon rolls "will turn anyone into a morning person." And I definitely agree. Some of my favorite childhood memories were waking up in the morning and racing into my kitchen, where the smell of gooey cinnamon rolls topped with icing filled the air.

Cinnamon Rolls that were so dense we never finished a whole batch in one sitting.  But in December, Stewart caught my cinnamon roll-loving attention when she re-shared her 2018 recipe that promised to yield the "lightest, fluffiest cinnamon rolls ever" thanks to one unexpected ingredient: mashed potatoes.  "The secret ingredient to pillowy perfection? Adding a russet potato," the 79-year-old chef and lifestyle icon...
    What could be better than a rich and creamy bowl of mashed potatoes? How about a bowl of mashed potatoes infused with celery and horseradish? This fluffy bowl piles on the roots, with celery root and horseradish joining the mix. The result is a delicious side of potatoes, with an extra dimension of fragrance, flavor and bite. Celery root, also known as celeriac, is the dark horse of root vegetables. Don’t let its gnarly, bulbous exterior put you off. Once you cut away the skin, a milky white interior is revealed, softly redolent with celery. Celery root can be eaten raw and grated into salads. When cooked, it’s a non-starchy alternative or complement to potatoes in mashes, gratins and soups. Horseradish is also a root and belongs to the mustard family, which explains its peppery bite. Horseradish is often grated raw and folded into sauces and garnished over meats. Sharp and nutty, horseradish is quite strong when fresh, but its flavor fades and bite softens with cooking, so don’t be deterred by the amount in the recipe. Related Articles ...

    When mashed potatoes are on the menu, I almost always make extra so I can use them for another meal later in the week. I add them to vegetable fritters, make gnocchi, puree them into a creamy potato leek soup or combine them with other leftovers for croquettes. Shepherd’s pie is another ideal destination for leftover mashed potatoes. The simple formula — ground meat baked with a fluffy potato topping — lends itself to all sorts of flavor profiles. You can go traditional British with carrots, peas and Worcestershire sauce, or try this spiced version inspired by the Indian dish, keema. (I’m tempted to try a teriyaki version, perhaps with a scallion-ginger topping, or chili con carne paired with cheesy potatoes!) This recipe gives the mashed potato layer a little extra texture and bite by adding minced raw onion, but if you prefer, you can sauté the onion along with the ginger and chile pepper before mixing them with the potatoes. Shepherd’s Pie with Indian Spices Serves 4 For the meat layer: 1 to 2 tablespoons oil 1½ cups finely...
              Thanksgiving is all about spending quality time with family and friends away from the everyday responsibilities such as work and school, but the holiday really centers around the large afternoon feast where so much food is consumed that a nap is usually required immediately afterward. And everybody knows that Turkey is the mainstay of traditionally Thanksgiving meals, hence the nickname Turkey Day, but what about the side dishes? Which classic sides are more popular than others? Zippia, a career expertise website, analyzed Google trends to found out which Thanksgiving side dishes are most popular among the 50 states and the results are actually quite interesting. In Virginia, the most popular side dish is surprisingly mac and cheese. One would assume that the Commonwealth would naturally go for mashed potatoes or some type of casserole, like many other states, but no.
