Is it just me or are food bloggers obsessed with desserts? I understand the appeal of something sweet, decadent and gooey to entice and attract readers. We’re only human. I’m guilty of it myself! But you don’t see people going ga-ga over a roasted chicken, meatloaf or salad like you do over a coma-inducing chocolate cake. Do you?
Don’t get me wrong. I adore desserts. When I plan a party, I typically plan the dessert first. It really is the most important part of a meal!
My second love are appetizers.
I’ve professed my love for appetizers here before, so I won’t bore you.
But with summer fun, comes summer parties. And that means desserts AND appetizers.
Since artichokes are in season, my husband and I are going ga-ga over artichokes. We used to just steam them and make dips to go with it. Now we’ve moved on to grilling artichokes. Hello Mama!
First there was our Chile-Lime Roasted Artichokes.
Then came these lip-smacking, caramelized Grilled Balsamic Artichokes.
You can go ga-ga over them, too.
I won’t tell anyone!
