I’m going to be at Camp Ramah for Shavuot which means I’ll probably be eating less than stellar food. This is a huge disappointment, considering that Shavuot is the best time to be a milchegatarian. There might be cheesecake, but I’m not getting my hopes up. Anyway, even though I won’t get any, I present you with ten amazing cheesecake recipes and two other cheesy treats. Think of me when you chow down.
