I have not been a fan of making artichokes myself, but my good friend Julie told me how easy it is.  And it was!  Chris now loves them and Lexi will try a few leaves.  Joe and I love them too! 
Lexi is not so sure...

Now that I know how easy they are to make, I have made them several times.  All you have to do is boil the artichokes for 1 hr.  Drain them.  Pull the leaves off - they will come off very easy.  Put them on a platter.  Make a sauce out of butter, garlic, parmesan cheese and italian seasoning.  Pour over artichoke leaves and enjoy!  You don't eat the whole leaf.  You just scrape your teeth over the leaf and the flesh comes off.  Your hands will get messy, but it is fun!
