Shavuoth(holiday celebrating giving of the Torah - is one of my favorite
jewish holidays. One of my favorite traditions is the eating of sweet dairy foods. Here are a few traditional and not so traditional Shavuoth recipes
This is one of my favorite Italian desserts and the perfect ending to any Italian dinner. The shells are pretty simple to make, and taste so much better than the ready-made shells you buy in the Italian markets. Note that cooking time also includes chilling time.
Quick, easy dessert. They must make millions of these at the Troy Strawberry Festival in Troy Ohio. They say you haven't lived until you've tried one of these! I like them and am going to have them again for a Cinco de Mayo dessert.
Yummy!! This recipe will knock the socks off any guest! This recipe my mother originally found out of a cookbook, but unfortunately I do not know which. This works well with both frozen and fresh strawberries. I'd imagine almost any fruit could be substituted as well. (Prep time does not include chilling of strawberries).
This is a flaky Yemenite bread that my friend Yechiel taught me to make in Israel. It is delicious with puréed tomatoes and zhoug (a spicy condiment--I posted the recipe separately) or with honey. Well worth the effort! (Cook time is rest time).
Spongy lechuch, made of yeast dough, is served with hot soups and with dips. The preparation is simple, and is done in a frying pan rather than an oven. The result is something between a pita and a pancake, which can be dipped in tehina, simply spread with honey, eaten as is or torn up into a hot bone soup. I've always managed to scrounge some off my Yemenite friends, but have grown so addicted to the stuff thought it would be a better idea if I just made it myself. This recipe comes from Ha'aretz.
Mahlouach (pronounced “mah-lou-wach”) sounds suspiciously like mallah, an Arabic precursor to phyllo dough. This puff pastry-like pancake bread is served fried, both in Yemenite restaurants and in homes. Like Yemenite Sabbath breads kubbanah and jahnoun, mahlouach is so popular with Israelis that it is made commercially and sold frozen in supermarkets around the country.
Eat as is, dipped in hot sauce or soup, or filled like a crepe with spinach or meat.

DD loves her cheesecake and DH loves his lemon meringue pie, so to please both I thought I would try this recipe I found in Good Taste Magazine. They both liked it but both thought it needed more lemon flavour, so I have adjusted some of the ingredients to suit their tastes. I have not included cooling and chilling time in preparation time.
This cheesecake is a recipe rescue! A healthier cheesecake alternative. It is made without a crust, making it low in fat. But if you make it with your favorite crust it's still going to be a lot lighter than many other cheesecakes.
