When trying to keep a dinner menu simple, I love to serve a substantial recipe rather than a few picky dishes. If you get your timing right, a few glasses of wine when your guests arrive will hold them over and naturally transition to dinner with just one big appetizer.
It might not feel like spring outside, but the season is in full swing in the market! It’s artichoke season, so get those kitchen shears ready, because you’re going to need to make artichokes straight away. Cleaning artichokes feels a little work intensive the first time you make them, but after once you’ll get it and you’ll be craving artichokes regularly!
