For the Gnocchi, boil the potatoes with the skins on until they are fork tender. Do not cool the potatoes. Remove from the hot water one at a time, peel off the skins and using the tines from the back of a fork, gently mash the potatoes. Repeat for each potato, add to a bowl, then let cool 10-15 minutes. Form the potatoes into a ball shape, form a well and add in the egg and salt. Next add 1 cup of the flour and gently keep folding all of the ingredients together until it is all incorporated. The dough shouldn't be too sticky. If it is, gradually add more flour as needed. Cut into ten pieces. Take one of the pieces and turn it onto a floured board. Gently roll lengthwise forming a log shape the thickness of your thumb. From there, cut into eight pieces (about the size of the tip of your thumb to the first joint). Gently using the back of the fork, make an indentation on the top. Repeat for all ten segments of dough. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Gently drop in the Gnocchi. They are done when they start floating, approximately 3-5 minutes. Drain the water and put the Gnocchi in a serving bowl. Heat the sauce, pour over the Gnocchi and gently mix together.

Although my eating habits have improved over the years, I still have a great fondness for creamy gratins, which I make on special occasions. This tender sweet potato gratin is definitely a treat. Don’t try to make it with milk-it won’t work. For an accompaniment, look to some authoritative greens, such as a big plate of mustard greens, broccoli rabe, or seared radicchio, or an equally pungent ..

When we have black truffles, we do a variation on this without adding any black pepper to the gnocchi dough, and using a slightly strong, more mature goat cheese (Robiolina di Capra, which comes from Piemonte) — about 4 1/4 ounces — and just 2 tablespoons of milk. We add some diced vegetables to the cheese sauce (2 tablespoons each of carrot, celery and onion, seasoned and stewed gently ..

I made this Sweet Potato Cupcakes two days ago and it was the best treat for everyone at home. This recipe was adapted from my favourite book Okashi, sweet treats made with love. It was a very healthy steamed cake, no eggs or butter required. So easy to make and adding sweet potato in the cupcakes make them extra soft and delicious. This is definitely a keeper and I'll make with purple sweet ..
