How to Cook Whole Artichokes VIDEO



Watch this video to see how easy it is to prepare artichokes.  The tomato-basil salad is optional,  but very tasty and a lot more healthful than a traditional mayonnaise-based dipping sauce!  I am excited to share more videos soon!

I come from a large Italian-American family with 28 first cousins (on one side of the family!) where sit-down holiday dinners for 85 people are the norm (how, you might ask – organization! But more on that later …).

Some of my fondest memories are of simple family gatherings, both large and small, with long tables of bowls and platters piled high, the laughter of my cousins echoing and the comfort of tradition warming my soul.
