The Art of Artichokes

 

 I bookmarked these photos from the portfolio of Swedish photographer Helen Pe several months ago and I keep going back to them for inspiration. Not only are these amazing photographs, but I love these open spaces with touches of warm wood and black pieces.

The photo of the dining room above also inspired me to pick up some artichokes at the market today. It's been far too long since I have made them, so I looked on the Martha Stewart website for a refresher course in how to simply steam them. They always look like such a chore in the market, but really they are quite simple to prepare and fun to eat!
