AFAM - Dates RoundUp

Dear Friends,

Here is the much delayed AFAM-Dates roundup. AFAM is a wonderful event started by Maheswari of Beyond the Usual and it focuses on a particular fruit every month. November was my turn and I chose Dates. Thank you Maheswari for giving me this opportunity.

I am sure I am the only host who has taken so long to post a roundup and I am terribly sorry for it. I wish to thank each one of you who had spared some thought,time and effort to participate in this event and I extend my sincere apologies for delaying the roundup and for being unresponsive. Over the past weeks, I met with some unexpected circumstances and could not meet any of my commitments on time.


Again, thank you so much. I am overwhelmed by these 47 lovely entries. They mean a lot to a first time event hostess. I am sure you would enjoy the diverse recipes as much as I did.

I have categorized the recipes into Baked Goodies, Savory Treats, Desserts and Breakfast and Snack Choices and Beverages. Kindly let me know if I have misplaced any entry or if you do not find it in the roundup.
