Next time you wander through the produce section to pick up some dates (yes, that is the best place to find them at the grocery store!), you might want to grab a few extra.

For the longest time, I'd walk past the bags of dates at the grocery store and never take a second glance. It's not that I never liked them — I just never was quite sure what to do with them besides snack on them straight. But the truth is that there are plenty of ways to enjoy them! Once I finally gave them a chance, I realized the possibilities are nearly endless. From blending them into a morning smoothie, to chopping them up for a salad topping, to tucking them into dessert, here are our 13 most favorite recipes that feature the sweet dried fruit.

Both bananas and dates have enough sweetness tucked inside of them that this cardamom-spiced smoothie doesn't need any added sweeteners. Plus adding chia seeds to the mix gives

what's date sugar, and how do you use it?

(Image credit: Joe Lingeman)
Dates seem to be having their time in the superfood spotlight. Full of potassium, iron, B vitamins, and fiber, this sweet fruit is being churned into paste and syrup, and even being dried and turned into sugar. Does date sugar rival its granulated counterparts when it comes to baked goods, and does it hold the same nutritional power as whole dates? We did some digging to learn all about how date sugar is made and how we can (and cannot) use date sugar in the kitchen.
What Is Date Sugar?
Date sugar is made with dehydrated dates that are ground to resemble granulated sugar. Because whole, pitted dates are used to make the sugar, the presence of fiber leaves a tiny grit to the sugar that won't dissolve in hot liquids or baked goods. It has a sweet, buttersco

5 strategies for picking recipes for a week of meal planning

Before you can actually execute your meal plan, you need to choose recipes you'll cook during the week ahead. This is possibly the most important step in meal planning. When approached in a way that's just right for you, the recipes you choose will set you up for success. To the uninitiated this step can feel overwhelming, but I assure you that it's not when you let these strategies guide the way in selecting the recipes for your meal plan.
1. Pick recipes for the kind of meals you need.
This sounds so simple and obvious, yet when your mind is swirling with the components of meal planning, it can be easy to overlook. Like many things in life, meal planning is most successful when you keep things simple. Choose recipes based on the kind of meals you need. Busy week ahead? Lean on the sl

this is the best way to revive stale dates

(Image credit: Maria Siriano)
If you've ever brought a package of dates home, on at least one occasion you've probably pulled them out to find them looking kind of crystallized on the outside and way more firm than you remember. Am I right? Here's the thing about dates — these sweet fruits continue to dry out (and eventually harden up) as they age. It happens when they're stored properly, and even faster when they're not. They're still perfectly good, though, so don't toss them. You just need to revive them and bring them back to life. Here's the best way to do it.
Soak in Hot Water to Revive Stale Dates
While there are several ways to soften stale or extra-firm dates. This simple method quickly delivers the best results every time. Without fail, just a few minutes of soaking in hot w

pair dates with these 7 foods for a delicious snack

Sticky, sweet dates have many wonderful uses. They can be chopped up for a salad, blended into a smoothie, or even made into caramels. They don't, however, actually need that much fussing to be enjoyed. All on their own, they make for a pretty good snack. Add just one more ingredient to the equation and you've got a snack that's truly great.
Even better, you don't need to go out of your way to buy anything special. These fancied-up dates call for pantry ingredients that transform the dried fruit into something that not only feels like a treat for yourself, but can also be served to company. Here are seven combinations we love.
1. Dates + Roasted, Salted Almonds
The nuttiness of the almonds brings out the caramel notes in the dates, while the salt on the nuts keeps things balanced. Eit

does food safety really matter in cookbooks?

A new study from researchers at North Carolina State University looked at best-selling cookbooks and found that 99.7 percent of recipes don't address food-related risks. Is this a problem?
The study, published in the British Food Journal, looked at 1,749 recipes containing "raw animal ingredients" from 29 cookbooks featured on the New York Times best-sellers list. The team looked at the following three things: If the recipe says to cook a dish to a specific internal temperature, if the temperature provided is accurate, and if any food-safety cooking myths are perpetuated. Of the recipes, only 8 percent (123 recipes) stated the internal temperature.
"In other words, very few recipes provided relevant food-safety information, and 34 of those 123 recipes gave readers information that wasn't

do this first when sweetening a smoothie with dates

Creamy Orange Date Smoothie(Image credit: Laura Wright)
I know fruit smoothies can be plenty sweet on their own, but I like a little something more. My sweetener of choice is dates. They add the extra sweetness I crave along with subtle notes of rich caramel, and I feel good knowing I'm satisfying my sweet tooth with something wholesome.
These dried fruits have also changed the way I make smoothies. When I toss dates into my smoothies, there's always one thing I do first to guarantee the smoothest drink possible. Can you guess what it is?

a church cookbook might be the best greek cookbook around

Church cookbooks were once so common, they were considered unremarkable. Living in the South, I know the scene well — Ladies League recipe pamphlets and community cookbooks litter the shelves of thrift stores. Yet the best food writers seek these records out, both as a means of preservation and as a way to gain insight on recipes that truly tell the stories of regional foodways and the cuisines of other cultures.
So I shouldn't have been surprised when, in researching Greek recipes for tzatziki, Greek dressing, and Greek salad, I found that a Church cookbook would be one of the most recommended, well-loved, and trusted resources. The Complete Book of Greek Cooking by the Recipe Club of Saint Paul's Greek Orthodox Cathedral is a compilation of two previous best-sellers with a rich history

how to make date syrup

(Image credit: Andrea Monzo)
Date syrup is a thick, caramel-colored sweetener made from dates. You may have seen it on the shelves in your local health food store, as many cooks embrace it as an alternative sweetener. Date syrup is incredibly easy to make at home, can be more affordable than store-bought, and has the lush caramel hue and heady date flavor of its namesake fruit.
Here is everything you need to know about making date syrup at home.
(Image credit: Andrea Monzo)The Best Dates for Date Syrup
Medjool dates are ideal for making date syrup. These soft, caramel-colored dates are easy to chop, soak, and purée for maximum sugar extraction (aka maximum flavor). Common Deglet Noor dates certainly work too, although you may find that they need a longer soak after boiling to soften.

the 5 recipes that got me through whole30

When I did my first Whole30 back in January, I did all the things you're supposed to do. I read through all the books, I meal planned for every single meal, and I mostly avoided the SWYPO (sex with your pants on) foods that Whole30 strongly looks down on (enter: small eye roll.) It was challenging, but I felt great after it was over.
During those 30 days I found a few key recipes that made my life a whole lot more enjoyable on such a strict program. These recipes were either so delicious that I forgot I wasn't eating pasta, or made my life a little easier (read: batch cooking). These five recipes in particular I made multiple times and still eat today even though I'm done with Whole30.

5 family friendly recipes to inspire this week's meal plan

Are you ever curious about what Kitchn editors cook and eat at home? You might be surprised at how often we cook new recipes for dinner or how often we cook recipes from the site at home. You've got to practice what you preach, right?
I thought I'd start by sharing what I'm cooking for my family of four this week from Kitchn recipes. Every Friday night I sit down with my planner and a cocktail and choose a week's worth of dinners for the week ahead. This might inspire you to cook some of these recipes yourself (maybe you missed them on the site) or maybe this will give you ideas for a similar meal plan for your family and the week ahead. So here are the five dinners I'm cooking for the week of March 13 through March 17.
