By guest blogger Anita: A few years ago, some friends and I were at Table 8 restaurant in Montclair, NJ where we had the most delicious appetizer. Since then, we have NOT stopped bothering my friend, whose husband owned the restaurant, about those famous dates! We all loved them so much and had never really tried anything like that before. So delicious! This past weekend, I decided to pay her a visit to “catch up” and oh yeah … “can we make those dates?”
Dates are among the most ancient fruits, growing along the Nile as early as the 5th century B.C. They are very decadent and will satisfy your sweet tooth, but they are also packed with lots of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Dates are an excellent source of iron, rich in potassium and fiber.
• Sliced Almonds
• Gorgonzola Cheese
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Voilà! It’s as easy as that to make. This crowd-favorite app has been served and requested over and over. It’s also a great, easy way to get the kids involved in the kitchen.
Thanks Demetri & Marisol for the recipe and Sabela & Malik for the extra help in the kitchen!! Oh yes, and our friend Yunetsi who decided to come over … once she heard we were making the dates 😉
