  • Since we love us some Paula Deen style cooking on this blog, I figured we ought to add this hilarious video of Martha Stewart making mashed potatoes with Snoop Dogg.  Needless to say, she adds lots of butter.  Snoop likes to add black pepper to his mashed potatoes, but I happen to be a fan of Morton's Nature's Seasoning.  In any case, enjoy.

    Just in case you happened to be wondering what the Snoop Dogg rap-style Christmas music he talked about with Martha Stewart would sound like, see the video below.
