Regarding the above creamed potato recipe- I prefer mine mashed, preferably by hand with an old potato masher, rather than whipping them to the smooth consistancy of baby food. It leaves a bit more substance, and you actually get to chew on them a bit.
Don't know if I'd go that far, but their Two Buck Chuck is the best deal in bottled wine ever. Not only is it good to drink, but it is so cheap that I use it extensively in cooking.
Best trick? Soak a bunch of cedar chips in wine for about four hours, and then smoke them in the BBQ while cooking a beer-can chicken. Fill the beer can with the wine too. You can use one of TJs free-range organic chickens here. Makes for one great chicken . . .
