Shavuot is coming! Shavuot is coming!

When we moved to Chicago, my roommate and I decided we wanted to have a dairy-only kitchen. We had a whole bunch of reasons, but, as it turns out, there aren’t too many hecksher kosher dairy kitchens. People around here give us a pretty hard time for it.

But not this weekend! This weekend is Shavuot, a holiday that, for many reasons is a celebration not only of Torah and study, but also of all things dairy. Game on!

Over the next few days, we’ll be posting all kinds of dairy recipes–from appetizers to entrees to desserts.

In the mean time, here are some of our old favorites:

Sour Cherry Soup

Cheese Kreplach

Cheese Lokshen Kugel

Rugelach
