Personally, I prefer my potatoes without the milk. I boil them, butter them, smash them, add salt and pepper(and parsley flakes if desired), and devour them! To me, adding milk takes away the potato taste, which I prefer.

Yes. If you have evaporated milk use that. If not regular milk is just fine.

Here are somme tips on mashed potatoes:

Mashed Potato Tips:
1. Start with russets, Idaho etc.. Just a plain basic potato, no need for red potatoes, or Yukon golds etc… Just stay with the classics here.
2. Don't over boil the potatos the way to tell when they are done is just when a fork can be poked all the way thru a potato with out any force.
3. Drain well or you will have a thin watery mashed potato.
4. When you emtpy your potatos back into the bowl to mash, weather you hand mash or use a mixer just mash the potatos and seasonings without the butter and milk first. Then when you get the consistentcy you want add some milk and butter and stir/fold it in. Potatos can sometimes get a glue like consistentcy due to the starch, mixing them "dry" frist helps to prevent that.
