Pan-fried Artichokes

12 baby artichokes for $2.99 at Whole Foods

Mix up 1 egg, milk, parmesan cheese, flour, salt, pepper, and fresh pressed garlic

Wash artichokes

Peel back the layers until the flesh is softer and yellow-green

Cut the tips off and the bottom stems

Slice the artichokes into 3's or 4's depending on size

Heat up a skillet with canola oil while you finish prepping the artichokes

Dunk the artichoke slice in the egg-flour mixture to cover both sides
Place it into the hot skillet (med-high heat)
Flip them over after a couple minutes to cook the other side too
Both sides should be golden brown

Take 'em out of the skillet and place on paper towels
I usually have about 2 - 3 batches to cook from the 12 baby artichokes
Best if served fresh and warm, but they can be refrigerated and served cold too

Weekend Brekkie

Sunday Breakfast

Everything here was purchased at the Union Square Farmers Market last Saturday (except the avocado).

- Freshly sliced sunflower whole wheat bread
- Vine ripe pesticide-free tomato
- Cage free scrambled eggs (1 yolk : 2 whites) with fresh Cremini mushrooms, avocado, ricotta, and basil

I love waking up to a delicious hearty breakfast on Sunday mornings.
Grazie to my Mister!

4th of July Sunset

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!

The sunset in New York was just as gorgeous as the fireworks.
