    I’ve never bought those dates, but finally saw some at Publix the other day. I guess I need to get some!

      Missy,

      The only dates I use; however, please, please before you buy/eat those dates, be certain they are not cross-contaminated.

      Remember the article on how some dried fruits and similar items (like dates) are “dusted” with wheat flour or a gluten-containing food OR how cc occurs due to storage/handling? Just double check first.

      Stay safe, dear!! xoxo

    Do you have the ability to give nutrition data like number of carbohydrates in your recipes? Due to Type I Diabetes I need that information to make exchanges in my foods. Thank you.

      I do not take time to calculate the nutrition information for recipes; however, please see the note I added on how YOU can do this just after the recipe, above.

      It is time consuming and not everyone needs it, and what’s more, the info I calculated would be only with the exact measurements and ingredients I used. I find so often readers measure differently and/or tweak recipes or use alternate ingredients, so for these reasons I do not offer that info.
