Got Gnocchi?

One of my family favorite meals from my Southern Italian culture has become an essential hearty comfort food. Gnocchi (NYOHK/kee) is the perfect meal to heal the soul. It is an authentic evening meal that is undeniably good on those cold winter nights or snowy Sunday afternoons. Most cooking and baking is an art and a science.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Ready, Set, Done.” Traveling today now diverted from the plane from New England, to Boston, to Detroit to get home to Milwaukee. We get shuffled around from line to line waiting as though we want to catch public transportation. No glamour or glory and certainly no luxury anywhere around us. We were “de-planed” as they say, with … Continue reading On the Road to Nowhere
