Step 1 Cut potatoes into quarters and place into a pot. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender and a fork slides easily into each potato, about 20 minutes. Drain.
Step 2 Mash potatoes. Add 2 tablespoon each butter and milk. Adjust the measurements if needed-if it’s dry, add more milk and if it’s not creamy enough, add more butter. Add celery salt and salt; continue to mash until there are no clumps of potato left and everything is thoroughly blended.

Step 1 Fill a stockpot with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Add green beans and 1 pinch salt; boil until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Drain beans in a colander and rinse with cold water. Blot dry using paper towels.
Step 2 Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and shallot in the hot oil until tender and translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add green beans, garlic salt, soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir for 5 to 7 minutes more. Serve immediately.
