Thanksgiving Traditions with #WinnDixieHydePark + #Giveaway has been sponsored by Winn-Dixie.




My favorite holiday of all time is Thanksgiving. Maybe it’s because the whole holiday centers around being together as a family, eating amazing home cooked food and just giving thanks for what we are blessed to have. It’s a slow holiday that I savor every year.




And my family LOVES cooking as a family for Thanksgiving! My kids come into the kitchen and help all day. We prep together and they are so excited to learn and share their dishes on the table.

Thanksgiving Tampa MamaWe’ve partnered with Winn-Dixie this Thanksgiving to talk what’s for dinner at our Thanksgiving Feast and how we can save some money too!

And of course you’ll need a turkey for Thanksgiving too! My husband is always in charge os this and I might add it always tastes as good as it looks!

Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes


PREP 15 min.

COOK 45 min.

MAKE-AHEAD Buttermilk mashed potatoes can be made up to 1 day ahead, covered and refrigerated.

Rewarm over medium-low heat.



3 ½ lb. Yukon Gold Idaho Potatoes

10 tbs. unsalted butter, melted, divided

1 cup whole milk, warmed

1 cup buttermilk, room temperature


1. Place potatoes in a large pot and add enough cold salted water to cover them by 1 inch. Bring water to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium, and simmer for about 35 minutes, or until potatoes are tender but not bursting apart.


2. While still hot, peel potatoes and press through a food mill or potato ricer into same saucepan. Alternatively, use a potato masher for a coarser texture.


3. Stir 8 tbs. butter and milk and then buttermilk into potatoes. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm. Drizzle remaining 2 tbs. butter over and serve.

I was chosen for this opportunity through the Tampa Bay Bloggers Network.
