Sorry that I haven't posted much lately. This week was Shavuot, the holiday where we Jews celebrate receiving the Torah. It's funny, until I started blogging I didn't realize just how many holidays we have :) Anyway, a happy custom of Shavuot is to eat dairy, and in my book, that means cheesecake!
I make my mom's recipe, which is hand's-down the best cheesecake ever. I haven't ever found a slice that I enjoyed more! Generally, I like my cheesecake untainted, with no toppings. I feel that if it's good, it shouldn't need any extra stuff to get in the way. But this year I got a bit carried away and made four cakes, so I decided to experiment a little and add some toppings. Hence, we had one strawberry, one milk chocolate, one dulce de leche and of course, one plain:
Just look at those waves of sweet cheese! Ah, I love this holiday...
Have a great week, everyone!
