Party dates

Hello! After a long hiatus I'm back. I realized I missed sharing photographs, recipes and stories on the blog. I also felt like a needed a more grown up space—with my new last name—so here we are. You might also notice my design portfolio in the navigation. That's because my interests are intertwined and I felt like I wanted to keep them in the same space. 

These dates were made for a friend's birthday party this fall. I simply stuffed fresh dates with goat cheese, orange zest and pistachios. Not only were they easy to make, but they travelled well on the back of my bike.

The hardest part was stuffing the cheese inside the date. I let the cheese sit at room temperature in a small dish, then added a bit of water to thin so it was easier to spread. You could probably use a pastry bag (or a plastic sandwich bag with a cut corner) to fill the date as well.

Feel free to swap the ingredients with your favorites or try this blue cheese and pecan recipe or this bacon wrapped recipe. Your friends will love this savory and sweet party snack.
