Hi Lovelies! I am in Vegas on my last day with Zappos for the week, and guess what?! It is my three year anniversary! Cory surprised me, and showed up at my hotel door on Monday night, and to say I was shocked would be the understatement of the year! Cory and I have been together for almost eight years, and he always finds a way to make me feel special. Some days I just want to shout it from the rooftops; however, not every day was a pleasure cruise…..I did mention we have been together almost eight years right?! Anyway, we both love artichokes, but I have never cooked them before, and I decided to make them before I left last week for New York. They were a lot easier than I thought, and these would be a great addition to any dinner party or add them to your weekend snacketizer menu!
1 Package Baby Artichokes
4 Tbs Mayonaise
2 Tbs Dijon Mustard
Salt and Pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Peal artichokes of the hard outer layers. Cut off tops and bottoms. half and place in an ice water bath with the juice of a lemon. A little oxidation is ugly, but normal. Dry artichokes with paper towels, toss in olive oil, salt and pepper. Lay face down on baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Serve immediately with dipping sauce.
Dipping Sauce: Combine mayonaise, dijon mustard, juice and zest of one lemon. Salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
