    PaulaG's Note:

    The holiday season is upon us. Time to make those homemade gifts of quick breads, muffins and bagels. What better than to include a container of your specially made spread to a bread basket. This is super quick and can be ready in 5 minutes.

      This spread is nice and chunky with great nut and date flavours. The spices complemented each other and the remaining ingredients nicely, but were a bit strong for our taste. A tad less ginger would have been perfect for us. Since there are so many dates in here, we skipped the sugar. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this lovely recipe with us, Paula!

      This is a lot like a stuffed date recipe that I make, so of course I love it! HA HA HA! But seriously, this is very good.I cut back on the sugar because dates can be overwhelmingly and I don't have much of a sweet tooth. The crunch of the walnuts is great! I liked this on crackers myself. Thanks! :D

      Quick, easy, & delicious! I used it to spread on bagels, but it would be good on other types of breads or even crackers. Thanks for your entry & good luck in the contest. =)
