Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

It is brought to you by Foodista. A mixture of medjool dates, hardwood bacon, romesco sauce, and a handful of other ingredients are all it takes to make this recipe so scrumptious. Only a few people really liked this European dish. With a spoonacular score of 16%, this dish is rather bad. Bacon-Wrapped Dates with Chorizo and Manchego, Manchego-Stuffed Dates Wrapped in Bacon (Tapas), and Grilled Bacon Wrapped Shrimp with Romesco Sauce are very similar to this recipe.

Fingerfood works really well with Sparkling Wine and Sparkling rosé. If you're serving a selection of appetizers, you can't go wrong with these. Both are very food friendly and complement a variety of flavors. The NV Paques et Fils with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 36 dollars per bottle.

NV Paques et Fils

A very pretty pale pink. Scented with cherries and hydrangea. A spirited rose with tart strawberry on the palate and brisk acidity on the finish, it is refined and sophisticated, but not at all snooty. A perfect brunch wine. Excellent value.
