Artichokes are this week's Blogger Secret Ingredient! Since I'm hosting this week's event, I need to post something artichoke-alicious, right? I have had this post waiting in my drafts section, and since I have been crazy busy this week, and needed an artichoke recipe, it was perfect timing to use it! Before the BSI deadline on Sunday night, I plan to whip out the fresh artichokes and try something, but this will do for now.
So, here's another vacation meal, like my Fave Fresche, Finocchi, and Piselli Brasate al "Latte" (Fresh Favas, Fennel, and Peas Braised in "Milk"). I was inspired by the River Café cookbooks once again, and decided to transport myself to Italy through my kitchen. I just can't help it. Italy has invaded my brain!
