    I love your videos Sarah! My daughter and I made these last night, served with a light cheese sauce, and they were enjoyed by all. Yes, they are a bit time consuming, but a fun dish to prepare. I fried a few in a little olive oil for breakfast this morning, and they were still pillowy and delicious. I found them to be very filling, so next time I will make half a recipe. Thanks for all your great videos!

    Have learned once Gnocchi are prepared can freeze. Then drop into hot boiling water to freshen them, add sauce of desire. Lovely to have ready to eat~ simply heat up & know all ingredients. Less Sodium! (=^_^=)

    Sarah your hair is adorable - do what makes you happy. The gnocchi - how appropriate that this came out today as I was planning a gnocchi session in my attempts to make some we enjoy as much as the restaurant's version. The proportions were great as was the technique but you know that 'over kneaded' state that you describe? I think that's how we like it - heavier - almost 'al dente' - it really what we've all grown used to here in a heavily brooklyn/italian area from the places we love best

    I wanted to know about freezing them, too. Raw or cooked? This would be very helpful, and I DO NOT agree with the comment about the hair-do. How rude!

    Thank you. Can the dough for potato gnocchi be processed in the food processor? You make your bread and pie dough with your processor. Pat

    If I wanted to make the recipe for the future should I cook then freeze or just freeze raw? How is the process? Thanks for the recipe!
