Cinnamon Gnocchi

I had my first baby in the early evening–and I was so excited that I stayed up all night looking at him–with the Food Channel muted.  I thought about all the wonderful homemade foods and after school treats that I would make for my little guy.  Little did I know he would nurse forever and be homeschooled . . . so my baby food exploration and after school snacks were put on hold for a very long time.  I love to cook creatively.  What I didn’t realize that night I turned into a Mom it would be several years before I would be appreciated (by my kids) for my creativity in the kitchen!

This however is one recipe that my kids love.  I always have butter, sugar, cinnamon and gnocchi (or in a pinch I’ll use pasta).

Cook gnocchi according to the package–I buy frozen or make my own–it only takes a few minutes in boiling water.

Melt 1/2 stick of butter, 1/8 cup sugar and cinnamon until the sugar is dissolved–but not too hot or the sugar will burn!

Toss cinnamon sauce with gnocchi.

I serve this with a fruit salad or a green salad that has oranges or cranberries.
