This Sunday is the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, which means a lot of things to a lot of people, often most especially: Cheesecake. While most Jewish holidays are celebrating with traditionally Jewish dishes like chicken soup and brisket, celebrations on Shavuot are enhanced by dairy foods - blintzes, cheeses, lasagnas and of course, cheesecake. Here are a variety of exceptionally tasty recipes - so you can find the perfect cheesecake for any sweet tooth. 

Brownie Mosaic Cheesecake
 2. Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes

 3. Lime Strawberry Cheesecake

4. Cookie Dough and Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Bars

The best cupcake... for a BBQ

A few weeks ago here in Israel was Independence Day, and it's celebrated here much the same way it is the US... with barbecues! But of course after everyone has had their fill of hot dogs and hamburgers, they manage to make room for something sweet - and that's where these adorable cupcakes came in.

Cinnamon French Toast Cookies

I suppose I could be called a little schizophrenic when it comes to baking. There's one side of me that likes to take on ridiculously ambitious projects, with tens of complicated ingredients and odd-sounding combinations that make some people think twice before taking a bite. But there's another side that likes to bake simple people-pleasers, and these definitely fall in to that category.
