Not even remotely difficult.
Suzanne: I never use catalogs. I'd rather go in the store and see all the salespeople groveling and sucking up to you. Julia: Pardon me, I never knew they were so solicitous at the K-Mart.

If you had gone to school as planned, you'd probably know how to by now!
I hung out with Cheyenne Jackson in his dressing room waayyyyyy before he tickled D2.

If they're hard, you've done something wrong. Very, very wrong.
Cheyenne Jackson tickled me. AFTER ordering SoMMS a drink but NOT tickling him, and hanging out with Girly in his dressing room (where he DIDN'T tickle her) but BEFORE we got married. To others. And then he tweeted Boobs. He also tweeted he's good friends with some chick on "The Voice" who just happens to be good friends with Tink's ex. And I'm still married. Oh, and this just in: "Pettiness, spite, malice ....Such ugly emotions... So sad." - After Eight, talking about MEEEEEEEE!!! I'm so honored! :-)

Why make them when you can buy really good gnocchi at Whole Foods and the like?

I still want to go to chef school. I am teaching myself right now. I remember them making gnocchi in Godfather 3 and think it looks like fun.

Try one of Lidia Bastianich's recipes. She's a fabulous chef, and her books are great.

Actually the gnocchi I bought at Whole Foods kind of disintegrated in the water.

By the way, what's up with all the different screen names?

Um, guys, I'm sorry to say that this isn't me.

I love how people are helping this asshole out. I know perfectly well how to make gnocchi.

Dear friends, you really thought this was me!?

I'm so insulted.

Maybe you can use these recipes and write a cookbook. That way you can combine your two passions!

Ivan, why don't you just make that spaghetti and Red Velvet Cake you served the night you invited your lover to join you and your sugardaddy. That seemed to have made for a memorable evening.
Rest in peace, Iflitifloat.

"Red Velvet Cake"

I can't remember, was it an Armadillo Cake?

If it wasn't, it should have been.

As road kill, of course.

Now, back to gnocchi ... last night I ate at Nove in Victory Plaza in Dallas. (There also is one in Vegas.) They have the second-best gnocchi in town (that I have eaten). Very large, delicious dumplings. (They also have a wine room with a light display that is reminiscent of the lighted backdrop in "Hairspray." The restaurant is exquisitely decorated.)

However, Daniele on Oak Lawn has a mouth-watering gorgonzola gnocchi that is out of this world. When you are done with the gnocchi, sop up that sauce with bread and make your tummy happy!

So, the moral if the story is, if you are in Dallas, like the person in Ivan's avatar once was, don't make gnocchi at home ...
