This Tool Will Give You the Fluffiest Mashed Potatoes Ever, Hands Down
For years I had heard that the way to get the fluffiest, lightest mashed potatoes did not involve a masher, a wooden spoon, or (shudder) a food processor. The magical tool was a food mill. Last year I finally acquired one and I can say that the stories are true; for the lightest, fluffiest potatoes, a food mill is the way to go. I am a big fan of this food mill made by OXO. It’s dishwasher-safe, which is a major bonus when you’re talking about mashed potatoes and other purées.

Grilled pizza is a summertime, weeknight meal that has everything going for it. Whip up the perfect dough for grilling pizza, top with your favorite cheese and goodies, and let it cook while hanging out on the back deck with friends, wine glasses in hand. It’s easy, make-ahead, and elegant in all the right ways, and it doesn’t heat up your kitchen. Bonus. But to make a great pizza, you need a great dough.

Happy Sunday, and welcome to Kitchn’s Week Off, our first-ever collective staff vacation. While we have generous individual paid time off here at Apartment Therapy Media, I’ve been reflecting for a long time on how the work of digital media — especially when you write about food, which we live with every day in our own kitchens — is tough to shut off. Even when you feel like you should be taking a break, it can feel hard to completely disconnect.
