One of the things I love about this site is that it has served as documentation of my life through food. Sometimes, it’s directly in the writing about the recipe. Other times, it’s less noticeable through an overall trend. For example, I can’t remember the last time I posted a recipe that takes longer than an hour. I love sharing quick and easy but sometimes a meal is well worth the time. Yet, after having a child, time has become a precious commodity in rare supply.
However, as Mack turns two, I’m starting to find my rhythm. I’m finding ways to be more mindful of my time. Making gnocchi has always been a therapeutic process. This spelt gnocchi requires time but the end result is worth it. There are shortcuts to this meal (like using regular pasta) but if you have the time, make this recipe in it’s entirety. Also, if you can grind your own spelt flour, you should. The flavor from freshly ground spelt in these gnocchi push it over the top. Read more and see the recipe.
