Duality inspired by two beautiful people, or, to be more precise, two beautiful ladies who’ve never met, caused the appearance of this dessert on my Shavuos table.

No Bake No Dairy Cheesecake Choco-berry courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
This is the easiest, quickest, healthiest, and most delicious cheesecake I’ve ever had! And it’s not even a cheesecake; it only pretends to be one. It plays its role very well – if you don’t know, you can’t tell! Ooops, I didn’t mean to rhyme, it sort of happened.TRH No Bake No Dairy Cheesecake Choco-berry
Brownie on a Date courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
This cool brownie is on a sweet date. It’s so totally cool; it has spurned the heat of being baked but had a hot desire to be refrigerated instead. The date is delightfully sweet, as is proper for medjool dates, otherwise known as Judean dates.

Dracula and Klyotzki Dumplings courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
Count Dracula really existed. He was born in Transylvania in fifteenth century and ruled the province called Wallachia. His name was Vlad III, and his last name was Dracul, which means Dragon in Romanian.TRH Dracula and Klyotzki Dumplings

Drumstick sambar (no coconut) courtesy of Cooking with Smile
I learnt  this method of making sambar from my good friend Sara. When we had guests for lunch, Sara told me to try this and it was highly appreciated by our guest. Ingredients for this is as same as any sambar but only the method differs. You try this and definitely see the change in taste.

Salads are just salads, no matter how unusual and how creative they are. But here we get into the meat of our family tradition for Shavuos, if you can say that about a dairy pie.

I have to tell you that I did not invent this name for it! Had I done that, I would’ve come up with something a bit more – ummm… – original.  But this is the name you find in the menus of all Russian restaurants (Original’naya Zakuska)TRH Original Appetizer

Murungai Keerai Poriyal / Drumstick Leaves Stir Fry courtesy of Indian kitchen
Drumstick leaves / Murungai Keerai have been a part of Indian cuisine for a long time. These leaves may be considered as a king of all greens due to its numerous health benefits. During my childhood days, we used to have drumstick tree at our backyard from which we pluck leaves, drumstick and its flowers. My mom prepares poriyal, sambar and many other recipes with it which are packed with fresh flavour. Each and every part of the tree is beneficial.TRH Murungai Keerai Poriyal Drumstick Leaves Stir Fry
