Giada’s Stuffed Dates: Review

I made these for Thanksgiving this past year when most of my family came over to celebrate the holiday, and Maddie’s fourth birthday. Whenever I host the event, I always look for two things: a new app to bring to the table, and a different spin on sweet potatoes (there are so many!) When I was searching for a good app, I came across Giada De Laurentiis’ website. Firstly, let me say that if you’re going to visit, be prepared to spend a lot of time there. It’s got tons of great stuff including recipes, videos of recipes, and lots and lots of tips and tricks. All very cool.

One of the videos is Giada showing how to make these stuffed dates – and they are so easy to make! I think it took me about 10 minutes to put the entire plate together and they were delish too. With a fairly picky crowd, there were only three of us adventurous enough to try them, but that just meant more leftovers for me. Beware that while they do stay pretty nice in the fridge, the cheese inside does somewhat harden. If that texture’s going to bother you, you’re just going to have to eat them all the day you make ‘em!
