Time me

In the spirit of dinner tonight, this post will only take 15 minutes to write ... 1 ... 2 ... 3 ... GO!

So I "found" this foodie Web site today and I use the word found loosely since Time magazine named it one of the 50 coolest sites way back in 2006. But it's new to me. That's what counts here. I discovered it and I'm passing on to you.

What I wanted was a ricotta gnocchi recipe because that's what someone else was making for dinner and I had a half carton of forgotten ricotta in the fridge. A while back at some restaurant Chris had gnocchi and said we should try to make it some day. Stuff like that gets filed way back in my brain ...

10 minutes ...

So the gal on Delicious Days has a recipe that she swears is super easy and super fast and look, I have all the ingredients so I decided to give it a go. The woman behind the blog, Nicole Stich, says 15 minutes prep. Holy kaaa-rap, she was right! It did just take 15 minutes!

Verdict, mine did not taste like velvet. But it did have this wonderfully light cheesy taste. Chris asked for more but it is a recipe for 2 to have just one helping. Most of my helping was devoured by Joseph who got MAD when I cut him off from eating it all. Will refused to try like usual.

running out of time ...

Go here for the recipe and pretty pictures. Enjoy!


  1. Thanks for the inspiration. We have a fairly dull food routine over here. I often repeat the statement that if I didn't have to eat or sleep, I'd have lots of time for other cool stuff. Since you swear it only takes 15 minutes, I believe you. I'll give it a go. Only suggestion: add pronounciation of exotic-sounding dishes. Remember your Southern US friends! ;-)

  2. Yes, yes, yes! We tried it and it was delish! This is a great family activity, as the dough is just like playdough. The rolling and cutting of the dough is also like playdough, so the kids thought they were just playing. We'll definitely make this one again. Thanks!
