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 a delightful and refreshing dessert. I found a recipe 15 years ago that is similar to mine, but I modified it to have a very good blend between the lime juice and sugar. My crust enhances the taste of the cheesecake.
The most evil good tasting dessert I have ever had! Cookware : 10 inch springform pan. And Usually when I cook this cheesecake I get a small crack or two. I found a remedy to this problem though, if you place another rack underneath the cake while cooking containing a bowl of water you will not get any cracks. The water steams up and prevents the cake from cracking this method however will require you to watch more carefully; if you bake it too long the cake will be more like soup. Better to cook and just leave the crack, the taste will more than make up for it I promise!
This is the recipe that won $100,000 in Southern Living's Annual 2002 recipe contest. Do you think it's worth $100,000???? I changed it a bit by baking it in a water bath and it is VERY smooth and creamy.
After trying and trying different cheesecake recipes, I formulated one of my own. I do believe this is the perfect cheesecake. Very simple with a wonderful taste. You will need a 10 inch springform pan and to prepare a basic graham cracker crust beforehand.
This makes the most wonderful blintz! If you make these in an 8-inch skillet you should get 9-10 blintzes, make lots and freeze them. The batter needs to sit for about 30 minutes before using. If you are filling these with a sweet filling then increase the sugar and vanilla slightly. Try to warm your cream or milk up in the microwave slightly just until about room temperature before adding to the batter.
This fabulous French breakfast looks really fancy, but is oh so simple! You will love the rich, creamy cheese combined with the fruity sweetness of fresh strawberries, all wrapped in a delicate French crepe and drizzled with light sour cream sauce! Ooo la la!
Blini are thin buckwheat pancakes. Russian Blini are served with sour cream and caviar or smoked salmon. However, they also make a nice Hanukkah breakfast with some jam or pancake syrup on top. From the Jewish Holiday cookbook. The rising time is included in the cooking time.
This has a long proofing/raising time, but is worth the wait! My Russian Language instructor, Ludmilla Ivanova gave me this recipe when I studied at the Presidio in California. Several of us would go to her house monthly to "govoreet po-russkee" together and enjoy good food. We served it with melted butter, sour cream, and caviar. Lox would taste well on this as well. We would drink turkish coffee with this. Quite tasty (ochen vkoosna)
Not only is this absolutely TOO delicious, it is easy to make. A cinnamon batter surrounds the sweet creamy filling! You can completely prepare the blintz casserole and chill up to 8-24 hours before baking.
