Growing up with THE best Sicilian cook as my grandmother, delicious foods were always around!
One of my most favorite dishes were her stuffed artichokes! The artichokes were packed full of Parmesan cheese and Italian breadcrumbs, I used to look forward to them every year! Most people struggle with the cravings for sweets but for me, my weight gain came from BREAD! All kinds of BREAD...and these stuffed artichokes were no exception. I mean, I fully admit that I used to eat the stuffing out of them before even making it to the artichoke :( sad but true.

Move It Mommas SUPER simple artichoke:
2-3 artichokes, trimmed Place in pot, half full of boiling water. Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes or until leaves are tender. Drain water and drizzle with zesty Italian dressing and SERVE!
Nothing can be easier than that, right?! RIGHT! These are so good and although not covered in all that stuffing, they still remind me of my grandmother and her delicious foods :)
