i love dates.
this is no secret.
i try to eat one a day at least. i eat them plain. i stuff them with peanut butter. or cashews. or goat cheese.
i bring them with me to almost every potluck i attend. medjool dates are so sweet and smooth. if you don't like them, i bet you've never tried them.
my friend betsy is trying to use all the extra food in her pantry, and had a half bag of dates and featured my 'recipe' on her awesome betsylife blog last week.
if you close your eyes and chew long enough, these things taste just like the old hostess funny bones.
