Shavuos is the time of "Bikkurim," bringing the first harvest fruits of the 7 Species to the Bais HaMikdash, in the heavenly days when our Holy Temple stood. May we once again, soon, merit to observe this mitzvah.

~Torah was given to the women first, as the Torah says, “ko tomar lebeit Yaakov vetageid lebnei Yisrael” in a kind a loving Voice. Kindness is the theme of Shavuos and cooking is a kindness we do for our friends and family.
