Spring is finally here and we are all ready for the warmer weather. We can begin to enjoy all of the wonderful produce popping up and I am thinking about artichokes. Even though they are available year round, now is the time that they are at their best. Chill a bottle of Prosecco and make Maria’s (my Italian husband’s mother) stuffed artichokes for a perfect spring dinner. Preparing the artichokes is pretty easy so don’t shy away, it’s worth the time and effort.
