{artischocken mit curry- & knoblauchdip}

artichokes01

Jedes Mal, wenn meine Mutter uns zum Essen einlädt und fragt was ich denn essen möchte, ist meine Antwort "Artischocken". Das grüne Gemüse ist definitiv eines meiner Lieblingsessen. Aus irgendeinem unerfindlichen Grund koche ich sie jedoch nie für mich selbst. Ich mag es am liebsten, wenn meine Mutter sie kocht. Aber ist das nicht irgendwie normal? Bei Mama schmeckt es einfach am Besten! ;)

Diese Bilder sind bereits etwas über ein Jahr alt, aber wir haben sie an einem dieser Abende geschossen, bei dem ich Essenstahl hatte.

Meine Mom macht immer einen riesigen Aufriss, wenn Besuch ansteht und macht es so gemütlich, dass man eigentlich nicht mehr nach Hause gehen möchte. ;)

      Thank you for stopping by, Chelsea! ;)
      We always cook the artichokes in water for about 40 minutes. It depends on the size of the artichoke.
      Have a great rest of the week!
      xo’s from Germany,

    Vanessa,

    I don’t know how I stumbled upon your site, but I’m glad I did. Your blog is so refreshing! It seems we have a lot in common. I was also born in 1982 and my heritage is in Germany, although I have never visited myself. My maiden name is Fasnacht (donut! My grandfather changed it legally from “Fassnacht” to “Fasnacht”.) Fitting for me to find your vintage-inspired, German-American recipe blog. I just finished reading the post featuring the Christmas cookie. I’ll have to try that one! Also, ironically, I currently live in Texas. No joking. I’m in love with your little blog and I’ll be sure to stop by again. I look forward to reading more.

    Best,
    Erin

    Have not had a good artichoke in years. I can hardly wait to get some and make this recipe. It is easy and sound yummy. I am with you about moms making the best dishes. My mom made the best pancakes I have ever eaten. Happy Weekend!
