Featured for Shavuot

Gluten Free Quark & Sour Cream Baked Cheesecake

Shavuot, the holiday that marks the giving of the Torah (The Pentateuch) on Mt. Sinai, has come and gone, and I hadn't made the traditional cheesecake to celebrate the occasion until a week later. Truth be told the holiday is rather unremarkable. As soon as I "utter" the word "unremarkable," I choke on my words when I remember my post from last year No-Bake Blueberry Cheesecake about Shavuot. A year ago I wrote about an unorthodox practice during Shavuot which includes my mom's mischievous behavior and its origin.
