This was one of my favorite meals growing up but my grandma was the only one that could make just right. It's the ultimate comfort food; creamy and warm and it is the BEST with potatoes and peas straight from the garden. I can count on one hand how many I've made creamed peas and potatoes while I've been married simply because I could never get it like my grandma's. Recently, I've finally mastered it and my husband and children are now rolling in creamy bliss.
