David Tanis's pan-fried artichokes from the Times look great to me:http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/13/dining/cooking-baby-artichokes-city-kitchen.html

After spending a semester in Rome I almost always make fried artichokes (carciofi alla giudia), as Merrill suggests. Now that I'm a Californian and they're plentiful I've branched out into grilled artichokes like http://www.food52.com/recipes/11651_very_good_grilled_artichokes
Just cut the babies in half, boil, oil, and grill.

Being so tender, I love keeping things simple. Steam and dip the fleshy ends of the leaves in butter. How can you go wrong?
