Spices? Natural flavor? Caramel color? I think I’ll pass. Also–I’m passing on 430 mg of sodium per serving (1/6 of the package). What will be next? 1. Sweet Potato Gnocchi. 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.

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.
