I have never tried to make homemade gnocchi.  It's so good!  I really must try my hand at it sometime. 

 

My mom used to make it all the time and said it was uber easy, I have always bought the frozen stuff and she used to yell at me because I was wasting money.

Saucy, Italian “Drunken” Noodles with Spicy Italian Sausage, Tomatoes and Caramelized Onions and Red and Yellow Bell Peppers, with Fresh Basil

Ingredients:

• Olive oil
 4 spicy Italian sausage links, casings removed
 1 large onion, quartered and sliced thinly
 1 ˝ teaspoons salt
 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
 ˝ teaspoon cracked black pepper
 1 red bell pepper, cored and thinly sliced
 1 yellow bell pepper, cored and thinly sliced
 1 orange bell pepper, cored and thinly sliced
 4 cloves garlic, pressed through garlic press
 ˝ cup white wine (I used Chardonnay)
 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice
 2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, chopped
 Ľ cup fresh basil leaves, julienned, divided use
 8 ounces Pappardelle noodles, uncooked

Preparation:

-Place a large, heavy-bottom pan or braising pot over medium-high heat; add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and once the oil is hot, crumble the spicy Italian sausage into the pan in small chunks (you want to keep the sausage fairly chunky), allowing it to brown in the oil for a few moments on each side; once the crumbled sausage is browned, remove it from the pan/pot with a slotted spoon and place into a small bowl to hold for a moment; next, add the sliced onion into the pan with the sausage drippings, and allow it to caramelize and become golden for roughly 5 minutes or so, stirring to keep it from burning (add a touch more olive oil, if necessary); once the onion starts to become golden, add the salt, Italian seasoning and cracked black pepper, and stir to combine, then add in the sliced bell peppers, and allow those to saute with the onion for about 2 minutes until slightly tender and golden; next, add in the garlic, and once it becomes aromatic, add in the white wine and allow it to reduce for a few moments, until almost completely reduced; next, add in the diced tomatoes with their juice, and return the browned spicy Italian sausage back into the pan, and gently fold the mixture to combine; allow it to gently simmer for about 3-4 minutes to blend the flavors, then turn the heat off; to finish the sauce, drizzle in about 2-3 good tablespoons of the olive oil to create a silky, rich flavor, and add in the chopped parsley and about half of the julienned basil; stir, and keep warm while you prepare the noodles.

-Prepare the pappardelle noodles according to instructions on package; then, drain the noodles very well, and add them directly into the sauce, using tongs to gently toss and combine the pappardelle noodles with the sauce and all of the ingredients in it; check the seasoning to see if you need to add any additional salt or pepper.

-To serve, add equal portions of the “Drunken” noodles to bowls, and garnish with a sprinkle of the remaining julienned basil; you can even top with shaved Parmesan, if desired, and an extra drizzle of olive oil.

Seriously your wife works all day and makes dinner every night? You honestly don't see many women that do that at all. I have never had a gf that could cook worth a shit. My gf in California idea of making dinner was bringing home KFC and putting it on plates  >:(

Is that your gf in your profile pic?

She could put a $.49 frozen bean burrito on my plate every night and I would be happy :P

J/K, I do love some home cooking, need to get Mrs. B to make her cabbage soup

Seriously guys Lisa is 1 in a million.

She came home and fixed me up an omelet for my breaky tomorrow and ironed me a shirt for work, then spent almost 2 hours making dinner. Also chopped veggies for my tuna salad that I made for my lunches for the rest of the week.

All the while fetching me beers and pouring them for me.

Add to that she looks like a moviestar and I think I may just be the luckiest guy on earth.

And now for something completely different...

Snookums does a lot of research on natural foods, and recently (over the past few months) have started to buy local honey instead of commercial honey. There are a few benefits. First, locally produced honey is not a blend, so the taste is wayyyyy better than Sue Bee or what your local grocer or warehouse club carries (ever notice honey blends are kinda biter?) More importantly, it's produced from local flowers, so it's kinda like getting a flu shot every time you have some.

We've also done some very interesting infusions with honey.  I've had some screwy knee and shoulder issues the past few years, and have been including the enzyme bromelain in my daily supplement regimen. In nature, bromelain seems to come primarily from pineapple- and this is where t gets interesting. It is most prevalent in the core, which is pretty much inedible. However, snookums discovered that immersing a pineapple core in honey not only makes for a very tasty syrup, it softens the core  to a point where it is edible.
