Artichokes and leafy greens are in season! Artichokes have always been one of my favorite vegetables. As a child, my mother would serve them steamed with a side of some tangy delicious dip that was mouthwatering.
Ah, high school. Say what?!? High school was pretty much a bust for me. I finished, but barely. Socializing with other kids was difficult with the exception of a very few. Needless to say, I am much better now and so are the people I'm around. However, one of the amazing things that did come out of my high school years is my recipe for gorgonzola gnocchi. Intensely delicious and oh-so-bad-for-you... or so I thought.
