I don't bother nobody. I'm a real nice girl. Kind of laid back like a dead squirrel. Da ha, da ha, da ha ha ha ha. On a more serious note, I was born in Brooklyn, NY, then after nine years moved to Richmond,VA and lived there for thirty years. Lived in Fayetteville,NC for two and a half years. I lived in Savannah,GA for two years. I'm back in Richmond right now. I'm a recently divorced Christian BBW foodie concerned about human rights, ex-offender re-entry, recovery from all addiction, behavioral health,natural beauty,healthy living,etc. Right now I'm a caregiver,for the elderly,children and those with special needs and I am also trying to become a professional restaurant reviewer and blogger as well as looking for partners,investors & other resources to open a diner in the Bay Area of California or in Savannah Georgia

Grilled Artichokes with Artichoke-Mint Dip by Eat Snooth via Epicurious




This dip is also delicious with thin baguette slices, toast, crackers, or tortilla chips.

ingredients

  • 8 whole artichokes
  • 1 cup (packed) fresh mint leaves
  • 6 ounces cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

preparation

Prepare barbecue (medium heat). Using scissors, cut off spiky tips from artichokes. Using spoon, scrape out chokes from centers. Wrap each artichoke in foil. Using tines of fork, poke holes in foil. Grill until leaves pull away easily from heart, turning occasionally, about 40 minutes. Unwrap artichokes. Discard any outer leaves that may be charred and any tough inner leaves. Arrange 6 artichokes on platter. Remove leaves from remaining 2 artichokes and place on platter. Transfer artichoke hearts to processor. Add mint, cream cheese, and oil; blend until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer dip to bowl and place on platter.
