I still remember the first year we served shemurah matzah at our seder.... It was in the early 1960s and we were living on a ranch in Topanga Canyon.
When I was growing up, two types of food were usually associated with the holiday of Shavuot. There were the dairy dishes -- blintzes, knishes, noodle kugels and, of course, cheesecake. Most of us remember them from our childhood, but they were always laden with cream, butter and cheese, and may not appeal to our diet today.
