    I saw a picture on the site under "summer recipes" that I wanted ingredients for. When I clicked on picture it took me to page full of recipes but not that one. I put in ingredients that I could see in pic but still couldn't find it. This site is frustrating. I've used it for several years but may move on now.  -  14 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made these bites for a family dinner this Easter and they were a hit! Nice and moist, and a great consistency, and the orange zest was perfection! I didn't give this 5 starts as I found the instructions slightly lacking. It didn't work well at all combining the dates and cashews in the food processor together. The dates all clumped together on the side and the cashews were all at the bottom. I poured the two into a big bowl and went to work with my hands and this worked much better to combine the dates and cashews. I would definitely make these again.  -  17 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
