1. Place potatoes and garlic into a large saucepan full of cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce heat to medium, and boil for about 10-12 minutes. Check potatoes for doneness by poking a few wedges with a fork or skewer--if still firm, cook another minute or two and check again. Repeat until tender. Drain, taking care not to lose garlic cloves. Return potatoes to warm pot.
2. Mash potatoes. Do not overwork, or potatoes will be tough (it's okay if there's a few lumps--it just means these are real potatoes, not from a box). Make sure to smash up the garlic, or pull out the cloves and squeeze in a garlic press.
3. Add some butter, to taste (I usually use 2-3 T), and salt and pepper, also to taste. Mix until butter has melted.
4. Add a little hot milk and beat it into the potatoes. Continue until potatoes are desired creaminess (the amount I use varies, but I usually use between 1/4 and 1/2 cup, give or take a bit).

3. Process the potatoes and garlic through a food mill fitted with the medium disk. Add the reserved olive oil, 2 teaspoons of salt, the pepper, cream, and 3/4 cup of the cooking water to the potatoes and mix with a wooden spoon.

1. Place potato pieces and garlic cloves into a large pot, and cover with enough water so that the water is 1 inch over the potatoes. Add enough salt to the water so that the water is similar to seawater. Place over medium-high heat and cook until potatoes are fork-tender.
2. Drain potatoes with a colander, and using a potato ricer, rice the potatoes and garlic back into the empty pot. Add butter, cream, and cream cheese to the pot, and mix well until completely combined (using a hand-mixer makes very easy work of this!). Season with salt and pepper, and serve!
3. (Optional) If you do not have a potato ricer, pull the cooked whole garlic cloves out before mashing, and either use a garlic press to crush them into the mashed potatoes, or add the cloves to the cream and blend in a blender or food processor.

1. Peel the potatoes (or leave some/all of them unpeeled if you prefer, just make sure to scrub them well) and cut them into thirds. Add them to a salted pot of water and boil until a sharp knife easily pierces them.
2. Meanwhile, while the potatoes are boiling, add the cream, butter, garlic, and salt & pepper to a small saucepan over low heat. I let it slowly warm through (and the garlic slightly cooks). The garlic flavor nicely infuses the cream so the potatoes are more evenly flavored.
3. Drain the potatoes thoroughly and leave them in the pot. Slowly pour in the cream mixture and mash the potatoes using a hand-held potato masher. Mash until the cream has been absorbed and you've got a nice, smooth mash. Don't over-mash or they may end up gluey.
4. Serve potatoes with extra butter (if desired). I also sometimes like to sprinkle some chopped parsley and/or chives over top (optional).
