On September 18th, 2012, I lost one of the most important and influential women in my life. My Aunt Diane passed away after a brief battle with Pancreatic Cancer. This would explain my absence in blogging. This post is for her.
In recent years, I’ve been on a crusade to document our family recipes, which can sometime prove difficult because a lot of these recipes aren’t written down, rather, committed to my grandmother’s memory.
Growing up, Date Square could always be found at family gatherings, and it was always homemade. This is my Aunt’s recipe, and I’m so glad I asked her for this recipe years ago so this tradition can still carry on. I made a batch of these beauties for the family for after the funeral. As soon as everyone knew there was Date Square, they were off their seats, and literally running into the kitchen to grab a few pieces.
What kind of food traditions does your family have? I’m always curious to learn about what dishes are special to other people.
