    For some reason I think of my parents when I see dates, probably has to do with their insistence on having a date tree here in little old Indiana (where I’m pretty sure the weather is terrible for actual date harvesting haha). Beautiful photos, Cynthia! Hope all is well with the little one 🙂

    This is so good, Cynthia and molasses-y is my most favourite word now! I’m so glad you love this book. It is pretty much the best thing in my life providing me with endless encouragement. I swear I recommend it to everyone I meet.

    Creamy mascarpone with dates and tea? Sounds like a sweet little victory to me 🙂 I love how you styled this recipe, so inviting.

    I’m not much of a baker, so this was like a dream come true for me that I can actually have a simple dessert for valentine’s day without burning the house down. 🙂 It’s such an amazing and unique idea …but honestly, I’m hoping with time and following along with your recipes I’ll be able to produce good sweet eats from the oven.

    This looks magical. If my Great Nonni was still alive she would have loved this recipe. My sister, her, and I would have sat outside and eaten tea soaked dates dipped in mascarpone for days with me!!! Wonder if a hint of orange zest on top would really help kick those flavors up even more!! Will surely be trying as I have all ingredients in my fridge currently. SCORE!

say hello!
