Simplicity must have been what Marjorie was going for as she was writing her cookbook. As I've said over and over again, no matter how much is going on, I can still pull together one of Marjorie's recipes in under an hour; what a great feat.
I am surprised how many date recipes there are in Marjorie's cookbook. Dates must have been a popular item back in the day. In this day and age, people seem to be scared off by the mere word, "date." But believe me when I say that every date recipe I have made so far has been really good, and I'm not a big fan of dates!
