It all started with leftover mashed potatoes and a winter slump.  Every time my mom would have leftover mashed potatoes, she would make potato bread.  Since growing up, I have carried on the same tradition.

This past week I was left with just about the perfect 1 cup of leftover spuds required for potato bread.  As my apartment was filled with the comforting scent of baking bread, I wanted something bright to go with it.  The zest from the orange packs a clean punch of flavor and the honey sweetens and mellows the bitterness from the zest.  And of course, whipped butter always feels fancy.  Even though I only used 1 stick of butter, the final result was almost a 1/2 pint of whipped butter!
