I didn't start cooking until I had my first child. Before that I couldn't even make scrambled eggs or toast.   It was my dedication to supporting a balanced meal and create the perfect nutrition for my children that ignited the fire I needed to learn that I have been passionate about food all my life, I just needed a little push! 

Holy Smokes Artichoke was inspired by the idea of creating new recipes combined with stories that inspire that recipe. We live in such a fast paced world that slowing down and being mindful can sometimes be a challenge.  At Holy Smokes Artichoke we will inspire fun, easy and fast recipes for you to enjoy with your family and friends.  Some recipes will be filled with heart warming stories and others to simply be enjoyed. We believe in creating memories not perfection. 



Our editorial scope is simple. By contextualizing each post with simple ingredient explanations and some fun historical facts, we hope to inspire you to create your own unique dishes. While our recipes can incorporate industrial food, we recommend sourcing locally when at all possible. Seasonal produce and free-range meats always yield the best flavor. Most of all, we believe they contribute to a healthier ecosystem and a more connected community.
