FIRST EVER TIME making gnocchi, and it didn't turn out bad.

I looked up online how to make gnocchi and I didn't follow the exact recipes that I saw, so I am here to share with you what I did:

1 Potato, boiled (or baked)
1 Cup Flour, will have to sift later
1 Egg, beaten
Pinch of Salt
Pinch of Black Pepper
1 tsp dry Oregano (but if you use fresh oregano, I'm sure that'll be better)
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Parsley
1 tsp Onion Powder

After boiling, or baking the potato, mash the potato in a bowl until there are no hard pieces (use fork or potato masher).

Then, slowly sift your flour into the potatoes so there are no clumps.

Add the rest of the ingredients and mix -- when you see the dough forming, take it out of the bowl and place it on a board with some sprinkled flour.

Flour your hands as well so the wet dough doesn't stick to your hand as much. 

Knead the dough (fold inwards) and dust a little bit of flour on it as you do it so it's not as sticky. Knead for about 1 - 2 minutes, and then mold the dough into a ball.

Dust your knife with some flour and cut the dough ball in half. At this point, get a pot and add some water - put it on high heat.

While the water is boiling, use half of the dough and roll it out into a rope. Then, get your flour dusted knife, and cut the gnocchi dough into bite size pieces. 

Now, to cook the gnocchi -- when the water is beginning to boil, add the gnocchi. Once it floats to the top, it's cooked.

Then, remove it and shock it in cold water so it can stop cooking, or add it to a pan with some butter and saute until golden/brown.
