Ingredients for the truffle base:
1 1/2 cups of dates
3 tbsp cacao (unsweetened, of course)
3 tbsp of grated coconut.
Chop the dates and moisten a little if they seem dry. Use a food processor or immersion/stick blender to grind the three ingredients into a paste, going little by little, so you don’t overheat your blender. The mixture should be about thick cookie-dough consistency, firm enough to hold the round shape. Form little spheres. Roll in coating until well covered. Serve in festive paper candy cups.
grated orange zest
chopped roasted almonds
chopped walnuts or pecans
cinnamon and chili
smashed candy canes if you don't have a problem with sugar
whatever you like!

From the day I started going to Dr. Burke I expressed my expectations of my doctor, which are what we get now. I'm sure there is a lot I don't understand in terms of insurance coverage and laws in this state,...

(Kristine Burke, M.D.) I like that I am not just treated for a specific symptom, but that my overall health is evaluated. I like that I can call and usually get an appointment for myself or my children within 24 hours, and sometimes the same day if crucial. The fact that my daughter gets free healthcare through her employer (Sutter Health) and sees Sutter providers but she ...
