  2. I am part of a crazy cooking challenge and this month we are challenged with mashed potatoes. It won't get posted until Nov 7, but I am making your recipe... with due credit given :-) Hope you will check it out

  3. Laura,

    You can bake these babies for less calories! I have been making these forever. I make a spicy chipotle sauce to dip them im. YUMMY! Just bake at 350 for 10-15mins. You can prep them the night before and stick the balls in the frig until your ready to bake.
