Artichoke Francaise

I am not sure if Artichoke Francaise is an appetizer or main course! I just ate 2 of them as an appetizer while making dinner.. Give this recipe a try and you can substitute flours to make this a paleo recipe or gluten free.

Artichokes in a lemon and herb sauce

I grew up with my Nana steaming the large pot of artichokes on Sunday's and we would sit around the table before dinner with our bowl and just eat them with lots of laughter and smiles.  My Nana was very smart and she knew if she was making artichokes we would all sit around the table with her and that is all she wanted.  I came up with this recipe to add a different twist to artichokes but I still enjoy them steamed with olive oil and tons of chunky pieces of garlic!

You can also find this recipe in my cookbook: Paleo Italian Cooking.

**Cindy's Tip!  We all want to get to the heart of the artichoke.  Enjoy each leaf peddle by putting in your mouth then using your teeth to get the delicious flesh in your mouth.  Enjoy each leaf and don't hurry for the heart!  When you arrive to the bottom of your artichoke, there is a little "fuzzy hair"--just remove them and cut around the heart.  Put on your plate, cut it into pieces and just lightly dip and take a bite and enjoy that flavor in your mouth.  Enjoy with your family and friends! **

Chicken, Sausage, Spinach, Artichoke over Pasta

Chicken, Sausage, Spinach, Artichoke over Pasta

I was about to go grocery shopping and knew that I should have lunch first! Rule #1 eat before you go food shopping… I had all of these ingredients handy and it is cold outside so this was a perfect lunch for me!

I make this type of dish often to use up left over chicken and sausage or you can purchase fresh and sauté for this delicious Paleo recipe. You can also use zucchini if you have some handy!

The combination of chicken sausage, spinach, artichokes with herbs and garlic make this an amazing pasta dish for lunch or dinner.

I sometimes use spaghetti squash, our favorite pasta! There are also some great gluten free pastas available now!

Italian Pickled Vegetables

My grandfather had a very large garden and my Nana would wait for him to bring in the fresh vegetables. My Nana and I would take the fresh vegetables and make a bunch of jars and we would serve them on our Sunday dinners along with her antipasti. You can really cut the vegetables anyway you want. I like some slices and others in a stick form (sliced).

My Nana insisted that all of the vegetables except for the cauliflower and artichokes to be the same shape.

Kale, Bacon, and Artichoke Dip

Kale, Bacon, and Artichoke Dip

Wow I was thrilled on how great this dip came out for us!  As many of you know we spend the summer at our lake house in Massachusetts and we often get pop-in company!  Luckily I never fret and always have basic ingredients (and a little extra) for these weekend.  As avid entertainers I can quickly come up with something to serve my guests and luckily I had a few pieces of bacon left from breakfast and this appetizer was a great hit!  

We  had a little rain storm and enjoyed appetizers inside with our wine and when the weather cleared we grabbed our glasses and came outside.  Next thing we hear this noise and as we look over Jake is on the table eating the rest of the dip!  OMG he has never done that before and of course we all just laughed.  Oh Jake....   We love you...

Enjoy this paleo recipe and if you don't have kale use spinach or even arugula!  I have and it's great!

Paleo Cast Iron Pizza with Chicken, Artichoke and Spinach Pizza

I go on these kicks and after our amazing trip to the Virgin Islands making a pizza sounded so good!  I had my cast iron pan out after making my husband my paleo german apple pancake so it seemed like a great idea to make a pizza in this pan!  WOW we loved it.  Normally when I make a pizza we like it thin but this was a nice change.

Penne with Artichoke,Tomatoes and Spinach

Recently I have been experimenting with different recipes and I wanted to take one of my signature Italian dishes and reconstruct them so anyone can enjoy. I took a typical penne dish and put a vegan and also vegetarian twist on it. My family loved this  meal and were shocked that it was vegan!

Sausage and Artichoke Sauté

I am a huge fan of Italian 30 minute - one pot meals and paleo recipes! I was at my favorite Italian shop in Hartford, D&D Market, and I saw the delicious sausages in the case and immediately thought about sautéing them with artichokes. Now that's Italian! For a side I roasted zucchini, roma tomatoes and red onion. It was a great dinner. **Tips below!

Spinach Artichoke Rolls

This recipe was inspired by my love for artichokes! As I was creating this cookbook, these rolls just came together and was not on the original recipe list! I was very surprised that it came together so well and the first bite was breath taking. Go ahead and make these but beware it is hard to stop eating them!
