OK, ok, I will tell you. I buy the gnocchi and the marinara sauce.
Now you know the secret. Don't tell anyone.
Here is how I make this easy baked mushroom gnocchi.
1 lb potato gnocchi
1 lb mushrooms, sliced
1cup marinara sauce
parmesan cheese, grated
2 tablespoons oil
Sautee the mushrooms in 2 tablespoons of oil until golden brown. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Pour the marinara sauce in the same skillet and simmer 5 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning.
In a large pot bring water to a boil, add salt. Boil the gnocchi until they float (follow the instruction on the package).
Turn on broiler.
Divide cooked gnocchi among 2 shallow baking dishes.
Top gnocchi with the sautéed mushrooms.
Add the marinara sauce.
Add dollops of ricotta cheese.
Sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese.
Broil until golden brown 3-4 minutes.
Garnish with basil leaves.

Last night I made my first apple ginger shot. The first sip felt like all my taste buds exploded! The ginger has a strong kick. Woooow, first you feel the apple and then the ginger. Soooo good, ohhh. Don't sip it, just drink it like a shot that is the best way to drink it.
Next time I will try pure ginger juice. Wish me good luck :-)
(for 2 shots)
1 large apple
1 piece of ginger (size of thumb)
Pour into a glass and serve immediately.

I am crazy about ginger lately. I make ginger tea, I put it in juice, it is good for cold, tummy pain, nausea .... it has a lot of health benefits.
Spice up your juice with ginger root.
3-4 orange, peeled
1 inch ginger root, peeled
Process the ginger root through the juicer than the oranges.
Pour into a glass and serve immediately.
The amount of ginger root you use will depend on your individual taste.

Don't ever think that the photos you take are not good enough. One day you will find your pictures on othe websites, just like I did. And it hurts.
Images are an important aspect of blogging. If you're placing your photographs on the Internet, you'll want to make sure you protect your rights to those images. I learned my lesson. Unfortunately we learn from our mistakes. I will copyright my photos, I will watermark them I will do whatever it takes. I am not a pro, but I love to take pictures and I don’t want anybody to use them without my permission.
I have 3 blogs, one of them is Scarsdale Diet Recipes. Pictures from my blog are on different sites.
Here is my post: http://scarsdaledietrecipes.blogspot.com/2011/06/tuna-salad.html
Here is one website that used my photo: http://www.de-slabit.com/2012/04/dieta-scarsdale.html
Another website is http://cieloalatierra.wordpress.com/2012/08/31/viernes-de-dietas-dieta-scarsdale/
It is easy to steal a photo to rotate it to crop it and to post it on your blog. That doesn't make it yours.

I took those photos and it drives me crazy to see them on somebody elses site.

Growing up my family used food as a way to share stories, memories and love. Even now, when I eat certain foods I feel like I am that little girl sitting at the table with my brother and my paretnts. It is such a great feeling.
In winter this was the soup I wanted. Nothing beats the winter chill like a steaming bowl of chicken soup.
2 1/2 lb Stewing Hen (Mature Chicken)

With a pizza cutter, slice the puff pastry into 1/2 wide strips.
Wrap puff pastry around the asparagus.
Arrange wrapped spears in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Bake for about 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until asparagus is tender, prosciutto is crisp and puff pastry is golden brown. Serve immediately.
Note: Prosciutto is salty enough, so you don't need to season with salt.
You can brush the puff pastry with egg wash and sprinkle with garlic powder and parmesan cheese.

He loved to play in the snow.
Preheat oven at 350F.
Note: If you want the cake to be super moist, reserve about 3-4 tablespoon of syrup and when the cake is baked make some holes in the cake with a toothpick, and pour the caramel syrup with a spoon over the cake.
