Mac & Cheese Wednesday: Spinach-Artichoke Mac AND Fantastic Daisy Artichoke


Hey, look, it's a Mac & Cheese Wednesday post! Sorry, my tummy told me I needed to slow down on the mac and cheese recipes. However, my mother tagged me on Facebook with a recipe for Spinach-Artichoke Mac and Cheese - a Buzzfeed recipe, no less - and it looked too tasty to resist! I Googled spinach-artichoke mac and cheese recipes, just to compare this one with any others that may be out there, then decided this one looked fine. Verdict?

Oh my gosh. This was delicious. So delicious that I forgot to take any pictures besides the bad phone photo you see at the top of the page.

So the recipe can be found on Buzzfeed, complete with video. For once, I was able to follow the recipe directly. (In other words, I went to the store after I decided to make it.) 

And today's book? It's Fantastic Daisy Artichoke by Quentin Blake!

Fantastic Daisy Artichoke by Quentin Blake. Red Fox, 2001.

Alas, the book has nothing to do with actual artichokes. It's just a fun little book celebrating the fabulous hippie DIY-er Daisy Artichoke. It's a rhyming story with a catch: every rhyming word rhymes with "-choke!"

I love Quentin Blake illustrations. I think Little Sis copies his style at times in her own art, which makes me giggle.  Unfortunately, this one is out-of-print (at least in the U.S.), but perhaps you can score a used copy, or do as we did and check it out from your local library.

  1. What a great dish and book! I love Quentin Blake's illustrations -especially in those beloved Roald Dahl books that I've had since I was little. This one looks so funny.

    1. It's so very cute and silly. And I love his Dahl illustrations best, too!
