Parsley & Chives Whipped Potatoes

whipped mashed potatoesFirst, I want to thank Hamilton Beach from the bottom of my heart for choosing me as a brand ambassador. It has been a great honor.

Second, I needed a break from pudding, gelatin, and cakes so I decided to test out my new mixer on mashed potatoes. Spring is here and I can’t wait to get started on my vegetable garden!

potatoes and mixersSome of you may be familiar with the Hamilton Beach brand. I can admit, I have had to buy a lot of my appliances these last few years from thrift shops or off the clearance aisles. A lot of my electrical kitchen gadgets are hand-me-downs. I’m ok with that. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Christmas before last my step-mother-in-law purchased a new hand mixer for me because we had blown through all the ones we were buying from Goodwill. The one I have is loud and the beaters are metal.

The wonderful thing about this new Hamilton Beach Softscrape hand mixer is that its quiet! Even at the fastest speed! I was so amazed. Even husband couldn’t believe it as he tried to take the mixer out of my hand and mixed the potatoes. The other great thing is that this particular hand mixer comes with 2 sets of beaters and a whisk. One set of beaters has a rubber covering meant to keep you from having to scrape the bowls with a spatula. I’m here to tell you, it worked. I loved that I completely mashed my potatoes and it was quick. I don’t generally take the hand mixer out for potatoes because I just use a masher because it’s a quicker process. I also did not have to do any scraping because these beaters did that for me. My potatoes were evenly blended! Butter, milk, parsley and some chopped green onion all blended through my potatoes.

  1. I would constantly burn my mixers up mixing stiff doughs, but I don’t think I bake often enough (or have the space) to justify buying a large stand mixer (although I drool over them regularly). I’ve been eyeing the mixer in your giveaway, so I’m glad to hear you’re satisfied with yours.

    1. I really loved using this. It was so quiet and those scrape free beaters were such a blessing and actually cut down on food prep! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. If I won I would use it to help me beat eggs. We make a log of egg casarole here and that would help a lot.

  3. This looks so good! Whipped potatoes are one of my favorite sides, and I love mine super creamy!! I’m also getting married in June so a mixer would be awesome! 🙂 I’m not sure how mashed up I can do with just a utensil.

  4. Your site is looking so amazing Chrystal 🙂 Potatoes look fantastic and that mixer looks like a great piece of equipment to add to any kitchen (whether just starting out or already have a few/several tools) — everyone needs a good hand mixer! I’m entered in the giveaway — good luck to everyone who is entering!

    1. Thank you so much Marsha! I don’t have a lot of tools. For one, I feel like I just don’t need them and for two, I don’t have a lot of cabinet space to store them. We have a good sized kitchen, but its old fashioned in the way it was made, so its not very user friendly. This mixer does rock though. I loved that I did not have to scrape sides!

  5. We’ve been doing some healthier baking, so I think we’d try out some of our new recipes we’ve been collecting. Our old blender is a bit loud. I love the way this one stores, too.

  6. Great giveaway, but I don’t know what to put for the G+ link? Anyway, the first thing I’d whip up would be some chocolate mousse.

  7. The first thing would probably be cookies, but I also like to make bread in this kind of weather because it rises well in the warm kitchen.
