In her book Bread & Wine, author Shauna Niequist gushes over her love for this three-ingredient appetizer. Perhaps more importantly her guests love them too. “Perfect these little numbers and people will be happy every time you walk in to a party. It’s like holding a puppy or baby- suddenly you become irresistible, which is a great feeling, even if it’s just because you are carrying bacon.”
With company coming over for dinner recently, I thought I’d see if these dates lived up to the Shauna’s hype. However, as the guest’s arrival time drew near, I was so far from having my act together, with the ingredients still in their packaging. Instead, I opted to keep it simple and be present with our guests rather than be preoccupied with trying out a brand-new recipe. It was a win-win. I enjoyed visiting and the next day while the kitchen was empty, and I wasn’t in a rush, I made a batch of these for my family to enjoy as a pre-dinner snack. They were so yummy. Now it’s an easy decision to figure out what to bring when we go to their house.
