Although often considered a vegetable, artichoke originated in the Mediterranean and has been used for centuries for its potential medicinal properties.
How to Cook and Eat an Artichoke
1 Cut of the tips of the leaves: If the artichokes have little thorns on the ends of their leaves, take a kitchen scissors and cut off the tips. This step is mostly for aesthetics as the thorns soften with cooking and pose no threat to the person eating the artichoke. But snipping them off will make the artichokes easier to handle.
2 Slice off the top of the artichoke: Slice about 3/4 inch to an inch off the tip of the artichoke. A serrated bread knife works great for this.
3 Remove small leaves at the base: Pull off any smaller leaves towards the base and on the stem.

Let’s Make Mexican Lasagna
1 Brown the ground beef: Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large sauté pan or cast iron frying pan on medium high heat. Add the ground meat, breaking it up as you add it.
Sprinkle with salt. Sprinkle on the chile powder, cayenne, cumin, and coriander. Increase the heat to high. Add another 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
Do not stir the meat unnecessarily. Allow the meat to brown on one side, and then stir it so the other side can be browned.
As soon as the meat is browned, remove the pan from the burner. The meat will continue to cook in the heat of the pan.
Once you are sure that the meat is cooked through, use a slotted spoon to remove the meat from the pan to a bowl. Set aside.
2 Sauté onions, bell peppers, garlic,...Read More

These Stuffed Bell Peppers are such a classic. They’re made with a mix of ground beef, rice, onions, tomatoes, and spices. No need to pre-cook the filling , stuff, bake, and serve!
Stuffed bell peppers a classic American dish that one can’t easily find in restaurants.
It’s essentially meatloaf stuffed into bell peppers and baked in the oven. My mom and dad have their own different versions, both delicious. This one is my dad’s.
The Best Peppers to Buy
These stuffed peppers can be made with any bell pepper. Red, yellow, and orange peppers are sweeter, because they’re riper, having been on the plant longer, while green peppers have a fresh bitterness that can make a welcome contrast to the meatloaf-like filling. Pick your favorite or mix them up!

Glazed Baked Ham is so Delicious!
Baked ham is a great way to feed a crowd during the holidays.
A glazed baked ham is so delicious and one of the easiest things to prepare for a celebration. A half-ham can feed a dozen people with leftovers. There’s very little in the way of actual cooking that needs to happen, which makes the prep a lot simpler, too.
HOW TO CHOOSE A HAM
You have a lot of different choices at the store when buying a ham:
- Whole ham or half ham
- Shank or butt
- Unsliced or spiral cut
- Bone-in or boneless
- Fully-cooked or partially cooked or uncooked
For this recipe, I prefer an un-sliced bone-in half ham, A half a ham will comfortably feed at least a dozen people, and cooking it un-sliced means that it’s less likely to dry out...

Chicken and Dumplings in the Instant Pot
Nothing like Rich, creamy, chicken and dumplings that are made easy in the Instant Pot.
Whisk up an easy dumpling batter, add your vegetables, chicken, and broth to the pot, and you’re on your way to a rib-sticking dinner.

Pressure cooking chicken and dumplings can a bit of a challenge because thickened liquids either don’t come up to pressure at all, or they do, and you end up with scorching on the bottom of the pot.
To address the issue, I didn’t add flour directly to the broth in this recipe...

Sweet potatoes are sweeter than pumpkins, and though the pies are usually made in the same way with eggs, cream or evaporated milk, and pie spices, sweet potato pie tends to be lighter, airier, and well, sweeter.
