I've high jacked Steve's pizza topic enough. Post your culinary masterpieces here! I would love to see food from other countries and US regions.

I've made ricotta gnocchi for tonight. I'll mix it with olive oil and sage in a pan after it cooks. I made a pound and a half, and will give the rest to one of the girls (frozen). I can post my recipe if anyone is interested.

Ed you are the R. L. Stein of muvipix threads. Your big threads are well big. Great idea. I hope it joins " Music Video Fridays, Music Memories and Obituaries!!!" in its popularity and postings.

Great picture, ed! Is that really your photo? Do you really have your own ridge board for adding stripes to the gnocchi?!

Yeah, I took it with my phone Steve, a gnocchi board is a must have kitchen tool imo. If you don't have a board you can press with a fork, or just press you finger into one side to make 'pillows'.

A few things on making ricotta gnocchi that I sometimes do, and did with this batch, when I'm either lazy or pressed for time.

- Normally you would put the ricotta in a fine mesh strainer over a bowel and leave it in the refrigerator overnight to drain. I didn't have time for that, so I grated dry ricotta (same number of grams) and then broke it up more finely with my fingers. The downside to this is it takes longer to kneed the dough. It still tastes great.

- For this gnocchi, but not for potato gnocchi, I sometimes skip the step of creating dough ropes. This saves me about 30 minutes in prep time. What I do is roll out some dough to between 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick, then cut into long rectangles about 1/2 inch wide. Then I cut those into 1/2 inch squares and run them down the gnocchi board. The shape is not very different then if you had cut from ropes, and gives a slightly more substantial piece of gnocchi, which I like for this style .

I've made it from scratch, ed (using a fork to add the ridges). But I've also cheated a bit and used instant mashed potato buds and a little semolina, egg and oil and they come out pretty good too!

Though it's a lot of work for something you can get at the supermarket for under $2.

Steve, what would your Grandmother have thought about this statement? :-8

I like to make fresh pasta, especially when we have guests over. I find the process relieves stress and is relaxing for me. My wife is going out with friends tonight, so I plan making some Orecchiette (hats) from eggless semolina flour. I'll leave those on a rack for a few days to dry them out before storing them.

I think I'll make and post a slideshow of one of my wife's favorite dinners soon, 40 garlic clove chicken. If you like garlic this will be something you'd want to make for sure.

Beautiful, ed! I went through a phase of making fresh pasta for my guests -- but I found that by the time we're done eating I'm so exhausted I just want my guests to leave.

A staple of the south - beer can chicken. Made it tonight for my Connecticut lady.

Rub is paprika, brown sugar, kosher salt and pepper. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes for a 4.5 pound chicken. Cover the top with foil after 30 minutes.

Nothing quite like having your dinner stand up and salute you when you walk into the kitchen!

Looks like the chicken made for a pretty tasty meal. and seems like a pretty simple way to get the bird cooked and crunchy all over.

Remindes me of this:

What an undignified end for that poor chicken. How would you like to finish your life with a beer can stuck up your whatever? :mrgreen:
