Friday Firsts - Artichokes

Friday Firsts

Happy Friday everybody! Thank you so much to those of you who link up every week and have the buttons on your blogs. It really means so much to me to have your support and I honestly love seeing each of your contributions every week. It gives me so many new ideas and confidence for my own firsts! One of my favorites from last week was Jessie's use of green garbanzo beans! I didn't even know such a thing existed - so cool to learn a new ingredient!

When I started Friday Firsts artichokes were one of those things I knew would make it here eventually. I like them, but have never made them myself because they intimidated me so much! I'm very proud to say that this week I tackled that fear and made Johnny and myself two beautiful stuffed artichokes to enjoy!

Now it's your turn to tell me about your first! To participate in Friday Firsts create a blog post featuring a "first" of yours. Next, link that blog post below and tell us about it! If you don't have a blog or a specific post to link to please tell us about your first in the comment section! Any and all participation is welcome!

Thanks for the shout out! New foods are always so much fun :) Congrats on your gorgeous stuff artichokes! I admit that I've never been brave enough to make stuffed artichokes, but yours look so good I just might!

Have a wonderful day, Christina!

Your artichoke looks amazing!! I've never had them like that before, but I've seen them in restaurants.

Happy Friday!

Bravo for tackling the artichokes, Christina! I've always been afraid of them too. Your's look SO delicious!

This week, I'm linking up some cookies I made out of a left over milk chocolate Easter bunny. They are insanely good!

Have a great weekend!

YUM....Love artichokes. I just added a link to my radish post. It's kind of lame in that I didn't really cook them, but they were a first for me!
