Warm and Delicious

Speaking of a small kitchen being no excuses for good food, take dinner the other night. I'm in the kitchen with my roommate Damiano who is boiling some potatoes, presumably to eat boiled potatoes. I go into my room for 5 minutes, come back, and sitting on the counter are beautiful, hand rolled potato gnocchi scattered among a sprinkling of flour on the counter. He made them in 5 minutes! Now even I'll admit I used to think gnocchi were one of the hardest things to make from scratch (in fact, my parents recently told me the most inedible thing I had ever cooked for them was some handmade gnocchi back in middle school).  But give it a try. These were absolutely wonderful, topped with a little rosemary garlic butter and parmesan.
