Shavuot Dishes: Some of my Favorites Dairy Recipes

Shavuot is one of my favorite holidays:

It’s not just OK to enjoy dairy, but it is highly recommended!

You’re gonna LOVE my mega Shavuot Recipes!

Lots of’em, scroll down, you’ll see! My – usually virtuous enough – students and readers have asked me specifically to go all out for my Shavuot Dishes, starring mostly dairy treats, all those foods we love to hate. “With Cheese!!!”, one of them even gushed via email in bold print: You asked for the Shavuot splurge! The good news is, many of them, in fact most, can easily be made pareve, using as always all-natural ingredients: That’s all I have eyes for!

Planning your menu for Shavuot dishes

Guys, please have a heart and do not include too many dairy dishes at the same meal, or you’ll risk getting too cheesy. So please find a good balance of Shavuot Dairy Classics with some other, more tame dishes. My blog has no end of fish dishes and vegan dishes to balance out the dairy ones.
