Some things in life are so nice to have around. Instant mashed potatoes are one of those for me. You just need them sometimes. I was so glad when Costco switched their instant mashers over to a brand that is gluten free. Yippee! I just use my earth balance butter and soy milk and we are good to go. I even use vanilla soy milk sometimes, and it tastes great, just a little sweeter. Enjoy.
