Hello pals, long ago in one TV show i watched one of our famous (in Bulgaria) singers. She was a part of the cooking minutes in the show. They expected from her to cook something, so she did one winter healthy cream. I've never tried it before i watch the show, but then i did it for myself and the result was amazing. Mashed potatoes with few spoons yogurt and garlic in there. You put everything in the blender, then you turn on the blender for a minute or two and you got great pate. She said that she make it in the winter, mostly, because of the cold weather and since she is doing it, her son doesn't get ill so often. Garlic is useful for cold. If i have to be honest, i wouldn't believe that mixed potatoes and yogurt can have so amazing taste, but when i tried it, it was so delicious that i still want to buy blender for doing that at home. Have you tried it? Other ideas for mixed healthy food, which can protect you from some illness?

mmm, now I am hungry. I am a potato and a yogurt lover so mixing the two might make a great combination. The other day someone told me about Apples and Cheese. At first I though hmm, never had that, although I love both. So I tried it and whoo, hoo am hooked. I eat it weekly now. I have not tried this in a very long time but growing up we use to get malt beverage mixed in a blender with an egg yolk and milk. It was a healthy shake for all flu and cold symptoms. The sound of it was like gross, but the taste is very delicious.

I also eat apples with cheese, because i don't like every kind of apples and don't enjoy the taste so much. I remember, when i was little girl, we had apple trees in our garden and the taste was amazing, but we don't have the trees anymore, so the taste of the bought apples is much different. The one combination i love them is with cheese. I'm potatoes lover too. Doesn't matter what way they are cooked.

I am mostly a cheese lover. I can put cheese of any kind in just about anything. Some people cringe when they see the different things I put the cheese in. I especially like it melted. Okay I am officially hungry.

I'll fry some baked paper right now, because we are hungry too. I love cheese too.

Sounds good tasting, friend! I certainly will try it. What did she serve it with? I will also try to make some alterations to your recipe, to get other colours. How about adding a bit of paprika? You can do that without a blender. Mashed potatoes can be whisked by hand. I have a blender but I donĀ“t use it to mash potatoes. Take care

Hello friend, actually the yogurt is getting a part of the pate when you mix all of that ... i don't know if i do it without blender, how the yogurt will mix with the potatoes so good as it was when i did it with blender. Some color would be good for sure, as you said paprika, or i love black pepper, so i put some.

Hi, Suggar....I don't know why you would need to buy a blender for this recipe. Looks to me like you could mix it up with a hand held electric mixer or even by hand if you do not have that. It would just take a little more time. This reminds me of a recipe I recently tried for the first time using potatoes. I love all kinds of pasta and I received an email with the recipe for gnocchi. This is a dumpling type mixture made out of mashed potatoes and varied seasonings can be added to taste. I made them up and they were delicious. I'll be making them again and again.

Thanks for your opinion Yoyo, i need blender because when i did the pasta with blender all mixed products was like one pate, i am not sure how it will happen, how the products will mix so good if it's done with hand hold mixer or something like that.

Hi Suggar, Yes, In Northern India and maybe elsewhere too we have a dish called Dahi Ke Aloo (a dish prepared from potatoes and curd with turmeric, garlic etc) But we dont grind everything out as mentioned. And I love that taste... I wish now that i could invite you anytime for enjoying a few Indian dishes - almost all of them are good and if you put less of spices - I would say all are good(going by the fact that I am not allowed to have any spices )

I have never tried Indian food, if i have to be honest. Here we have some restaurants specially for Indian food, may be they cook delicious. I wish i could live there too, my boyfriend often say - Let's move to India ... but it's not so easy. Thanks for the invitation Sids.

That does sound interesting. I usually make chicken noodle soup in the winter to help stave off colds...and when you have a cold its so beneficial for breaking it up...and so very good for you!
