Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Brown Butter Sauce and Fried Sage

So I've made this twice already and only realized last night as I was typing up the recipe that I'd misread the ingredients on Gourmet's site!  Twice.  The recipe calls for a total of two pounds of potatoes, but it was worded in such a confusing way that I ended up using half that.  It does explain why the gnocchi were a bit denser than I'd like, though.

Sugar Spiced Nuts

Happy New Year, you guys!  I hope everybody had a fantastic time over the holidays!  I had a nice, long visit with my family and completely lost my mind eating cookies, brownies, on sale holiday candies and chocolates.  I probably had more rice and noodles in the past two weeks than the last few months combined.  I was a woman possessed.  Nothing containing a smidgeon of carbs was safe from my bottomless maw, including these sugar spiced nuts.  These were so addictive it should be everybody's new year resolution to have a secret stash hidden in some dark kitchen cupboard.
