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 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.
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.
I love Spanakopita. This recipe appeals to me because it has the basic tastes, without all the carbs. Makes a great breakfast, lunch or dinner. Recipe was gathered from an unknown source and put here for safe-keeping.
Kreplach are a type of small, filled, savory pastry, usually boiled. They are similar in form to won-tons, but the flavor is quite different. Kreplach are typically filled with meat. These are filled with cheese and are baked. From: So eat, my darling, by Naf Avnon
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.
I have been making these for years for my get togethers and I sometimes make these using phyllo dough but puff pastry is really just as good and more convenient --- I sometimes add in roasted garlic into the spinach mixture and also a pinch of cayenne pepper for a bit of heat --- these are so good and make wonderful appetizers!
Sweet milk balls in thick milk.This recipe is really great.when I was in India I used to make it with fresh cow's milk.But in the USA its hard to find fresh cow's milk ,so I just make it with Samrock whole milk or any whole milk.Every time it comes out great.
