KCL 2018 Beauty Awards

Welcome to the latest beauty edit and the very first beauty awards here on the blog! I’ve tried so many wonderful beauty products this year and wanted to let you guys know which were my top must-have products of the year. I’ve picked from new and small businesses only, as I love to work with indie brands. And like most of the beauty brands I review; most of these are organic, natural, and cruelty-free.

These are the items that long after the required testing and promotion period, I find myself still using and preferring above any others. The're the products which despite a never ending stream of free PR samples, I would still spend my own money (and in some cases have) in order to get more of. And whether affordable or more costly, these are the beauty products that I truly think are worth the price. So if you’re thinking about adding more beauty or selfcare products into your 2019 routine, I highly recommend each of these brands.

Garlic and Herb Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes


If my Italian ancestors could rise from the grave and improve on American mashed potatoes, I'm quite certain they'd come up with something like this. With lactose-intolerant munchkins, I can't drown my potatoes in butter and cream. I've tried over the years to substitute with lactose-free milk and garlic, though I've never had a ton of success. The potatoes always turn out good but never great, and I refuse to make some healthy pureed cauliflower version. This year I decided to use more herbs, more fresh garlic, and a ton of olive oil. It was so worth it. These herb and olive oil mashed potatoes earned a lifetime place at my holiday table!

INGREDIENTS
*serves for a holiday dinner - for a small family dinner, you could cut the recipe down
  • two 40oz bags of Honey Golden Potatoes
  • 1/4 cup or 6-8 cloves fresh garlic finely minced
  • fresh herbs 1-2 bunches approximately 1/2 cup (I used parsley and sage)
  • 1 cup lactose-free milk
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • salt to taste

Two important things: Use the golden potatoes! And if you don't have a ricer or mixer, slice them into very small pieces. I would suggest this either way. I find that using the golden ones and cooking them down slowly makes for a more thick and creamy result, which totally makes up for the lack of cream and butter.

Boil until fork tender then mash the potatoes, add the other ingredients and stir. Enjoy!:)
