Our family has always been super close. We get together for almost all the holidays. Our parents house used to be the central hub for us all to get together.

Now that our parents are gone we haven't stopped getting together. Honestly, I think we do it just a little more now than we did. It just seems more important to do now more than ever.

Now that it is just us three sisters we trade off hosting the holidays as much as we can.  Our youngest sister recently moved to another state so now my older sister and I will take turns until we can visit with her.

But with all the cooking, it can be one more pot on the stove and more dishes to clean up. I don't know about you but doing the dishes is one chore I dread. It was time to come up with a crock pot version to free up some space and make it super easy.

My dad's recipe for mashed potatoes is a pretty easy and simple  recipe so I based this recipe off of that one. These mashed potatoes came out so flavorful. Slow cooked in chicken broth infuses so much flavor that you just don't get with cooking them on the stove. I don't know if I will ever make them another way now. Plus, you can keep these on warm until its time to dig in.
