"I have made a lot of mistakes falling in love, and regretted most of them, but never the potatoes that went with them."
-Nora Ephron, Screenwriter
I love having herbed oil on hand. Basil oil is a great choice and is especially delicious in this recipe. You can use any herb oil you want to for this recipe - rosemary or thyme oil, for instance, will give these potatoes a lovely herbaceous flavor. (You could, of course, leave the oil out as well.)

|1 lb||yukon gold potatoes|
|1 ounce||goat cheese|
|1/3 cup||2% milk|
|2 tsp||basil oil|
|fresh ground black pepper (to taste)|
Place the water in a large stock-pot over high heat.
Quarter the potatoes and add them to the stock-pot. Cover with water by about an inch. Bring to boil and then reduce heat until the water is simmering.
Cook the potatoes about 15 - 20 minutes, until slightly soft in the middle. They should give when squeezed.
Remove from heat and drain water. Add goat cheese, milk, salt and basil oil. Mash potatoes until creamy.
I like to leave some chunks of potatoes. If you like them smooth, be careful because over mashing will result in pasty potatoes.
Add ground black pepper to taste.
