love is a pillowy dumpling


Check out my Valentine's Day do-over from this past weekend. Oh, did I make these? Nah. The Mister did. And they were soooo good: dreamy delicate but delightfully decadent.

Not only did Toby make these adorable Ricotta Gnocchi, but he served them bathed in a Sage Brown Butter sauce*. I'm pretty sure my version of heaven is anything drizzled with sage brown butter.

Why the smooch-day do-over? Well, my job requires me to be 3000 miles away pretty much every Valentine's Day. Apparently the toy industry hates love. Hrmph... Anyway, this was Toby's year to cook--we take turns--a romantic, candle-lit dinner for two. HA... well, the gnocchi were excellent :)
