I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
...in your mind.


It’s easy to forget about these prickly, goofy-looking things in the supermarket. But they’re so good you shouldn’t - they make a great appetizer. Sometimes we have them right with the rest of our dinner. Don’t forget about the artichoke hearts after...


  • 3 artichokes (my family almost eats 1 each)
  • 1 1/2 lemons
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 stick of butter


  1. Cut the stem off the bottom so they sit flat, and about 1 inch off the top of each artichoke
  2. Cut the point off each leaf, to keep you or your guests from getting poked
  3. Place artichokes in large steamer with about about 3 inches of water below, or put them in a large pan with water about halfway up each choke
  4. Cut one lemon in half, and squeeze both 1/2’s over artichokes
  5. Bring to a boil, turn down and simmer covered for about 45 minutes, or until you can pull off a leaf quite easily
  6. Remove from water, cool & serve with all three dipping sauces - yes all three
  7. Dip 1 -Melt butter in small pot - so simple, so right
  8. Dip 2 -Mix half the mayo with curry powder and mix well
  9. Dip 3 -Mix other half of mayo with basil, garlic and juice from half of a lemon
