If you'd asked me 5 years ago if I liked artichokes I would have probably said no. Or something more like "Ew." Since then, I've had artichoke hearts a few times on pizza and in pasta...to thankfully realize that I do like artichokes. And last spring when we took a trip to San Francisco we took a risk and ordered an appetizer of grilled artichokes. Jason and both liked it and since then I've bought artichokes a few times to grill ourselves. They're usually pretty expensive, so I wait until they go on sale for $1 each. They can also be a little intimidating, but with a little help from Google, I figured out how to cook them properly.
