I like your post. It is good to see you verbalize from the heart and clarity on this important subject can be easily observed... Almond flour uk

Did you use miyabi knife? Is it good for that type of cooking?

This ladoo looks amazing I have eaten one before but this one looks something else something new and the main this is it's made with dates as I have never listened to any type of ladoo including dates in it. I will try this one out because I love dates and this time date is in the ladoo.
