Easy and economical. Two important words that come to mind when planning a family meal. If it can be healthy too, then I think I've hit the jackpot. I'm always on the lookout for budget-friendly meals as well as skillfully assembled foods and this sweet potato gnocchi fits the health, effort and budget bill perfectly. Something like gnocchi may seem a little daunting at first, but I suggest starting with a basic recipe and build up from there.
1. Simmer the apples gently in a covered pan with 40 g (1 1/2 oz) sugar, but no liquid, until pulpy. Cool slightly.

As I mention in the opening of the video, this stuffed, prosciutto-wrapped chicken breast has everything you want in a Valentine’s Day entrée; it looks fancy, it tastes amazing, and contains dried cherries, a known aphrodisiac. Of course, the efficacy of aphrodisiacs has been hotly debated for centuries, and while I think that some foods can have this effect, it’s virtually impossible to prove as scientific fact. One challenge with objectively analyzing the libido-leavening effects of these substances is that they’re often served alongside copious amounts of alcohol. Would eating two-dozen oysters still turn you on, if you didn’t down all that champagne with them? Does chocolate mousse have the same effect if not preceded by a bottle of wine? I guess we could do some experiments eating these foods without drinking, but to be honest, I’m really not curious enough to do something that extreme.
