My Best Date Ever

The sweetest experience you can imagine — with recipes

Have you ever taken room temp butter, fork-mashed a super fresh date into it, added cinnamon and salt, and spread it on hot crusty toast? I really don’t know what’s better than that. 

Whenever my parents went on trips, they brought things back for us. Usually, it was something edible or a tee shirt; one time my dad brought me back these ridiculous button covers — I think he was in Wyoming, or someplace else totally foreign and awe-inspiring to me. (The button covers, however, were not awe-inspring and never got worn.) And sometimes, he brought me dates, one of my favorite foods.
