  1. Four stars as written as these would inarguably be on the ho-hum side flavor-wise. But with a few small additions these are easily elevated to five stars particularly if you re an artichoke lover like me. (I love artichokes so much that Santa used to put them in my Christmas stocking when I was a - Read more ...
  2. It was a tad dry for how I like mashed potatoes so with a touch extra liquid this is a 5-star recipe! Such a simple side dish and with potential to be far less fatty than mashed potatoes without sacrificing flavor! SO good!
  3. i would LOVE to give this recipe 5 stars but it was just not THAT good! i was so excited to try it but it was a let down. the only thing i did different was diced my artichoke hearts instead of puree them. everything else was done according to the recipe. there was just - Read more ...
  4. These are really good if you're an artichoke lover. Since some reviewers said it made a lot I used 3 large potatoes and 2 cans of artichokes. I left about 5 artichoke hearts out of the puree and roughly chopped them I wanted some chunks of them in the mash. It turned out great!
  5. Delicious. Did add a little parmesan cheese as suggested. Great flavor.
  6. This was super easy to make and totally delicious. I made a few small changes I doubled the recipe and I added 1 cup of parmesan cheese and 1 TBSP of Italian seasoning and 1 tsp celery salt to this recipe. For a change it can be spread in a greased pan sprinkled with chedder/mozzerella - Read more ...
  7. Delicious and creamy without all of the "bad stuff" in normal mashed potatoes. My new favorite! Just be sure you cut all of the leaves off the hearts- they mess with the texture and make for an unpleasent find.
  8. These were good. I bought a jar of marinated artichokes and I next time I won't (didn't care for the marinade). Hubby LOVED them! He made TWO sandwiches with them and the "French Bread Rolls to Die For". LOL he's just like a kid! I will try again!
  9. WOW these were so good!!! Creamy and smooth especially with fresh garlic. I just recently learned to eat artichokes (mainly because of those restaurant spinach appetizers)! I followed recipe except for only using a half a jar of artichokes cause I was worried the kids wouldn't eat them. I will definitely make again!
  10. Very yummy. This recipe is really a more healthy alternative to traditional mashed potatoes. I roasted a few cloves of garlic and threw that into the food processor with the artichokes and milk. The recipe as written calls for very little butter but the artichoke mixture was so creamy I was able to use even - Read more ...
